Using Sakai 2.8, how do I view a news feed?
If your site has a link to a news feed, it will appear in the site's
menubar. Depending on how the site owner has set up the feed,
you may see
News in the menubar, or a more descriptive title,
New York Times,
The News tool in a site is an RSS "news aggregator" (or newsreader) that reads and displays continuously updated online content from RSS news feeds.
In addition to news, some web sites use the RSS format for information
that is updated often, such as blogs, events listings, or
the revision history of a book. You can usually identify an RSS feed
URL by the
.rss in the URL (e.g.,
or http://rss.cnn.com/rss/cnn_topstories.rss). You
can also search the web for RSS feeds pertaining to a certain interest
To add a web address for an RSS feed to your site (if you have the necessary permissions), see Adding, editing, or deleting a news feed.
