How to use RSS
Mises.org now offers audio and video podcasting: http://www.mises.org/mediaRSS.aspx, http://www.mises.org/audiobookRSS.xml and http://www.mises.org/videoRSS.xml.
For iTunes users [download program here], you can manually add the Mises
Podcast feeds and enjoy the benefits the podcasting feature has to offer. Do a search
for "Mises" on the iTunes site and subscribe; or, to do it manually: go to the Menu
>> Advanced >> Subscribe to Podcast. This opens a
dialog box which requires the URL of the podcast (for example, http://www.mises.org/mediaRSS.aspx).
Paste the URL in the box, then click OK. Next, go the sidebar and select
Podcasts. There, you will see your subscription to the Mises Podcast. You
may then click the arrow to see earlier feeds, which you can download by clicking
the Get button.
(For more on podcasting, see the Wikipedia)
Several other areas of Mises.org are also available via RSS. Using free software,
you can have all the headlines on topics that interest you delivered to your desktop
on a daily basis. With RSS you no longer have to visit your favorite Web site several
times a day to find out the latest news; instead, you open up your newsreader
and see all the site's headlines without ever leaving your desktop software. This
can be done with hundreds or thousands of sites.
To use RSS, you can first install RSS reader software. There are many readers available for
download from the
Yahoo Directory or Blogspace.
Some slimmed-down desktop readers are SharpReader
and RSS Bandit.
The following urls provide the Mises RSS feeds. Copy and paste the urls listed
below into the RSS reader of your choice and enjoy new headlines as they arrive.
Note that clicking on these links will not display any data in your browser, you
must use an RSS reader to automatically have headlines delivered to your desktop.
Webmasters: To display Mises content on your site, you need to parse the RSS feed.
The receiving site has to do a little bit of scripting
- but it's not overly difficult (for example, in ASP).
To include this content in your website, just copy and paste the code below into
the source of your website.
<iframe src="http://www.mises.org/quote.aspx" height="60"
If you have PHP, use this code:
(Change the size variable to make the feed wider or narrower.)
If your server doesn't support PHP, you can use an IFRAME tag:
<iframe src="http://www.mises.org/include/daily.aspx?size=350" width="400"
