|benifits of RSS feeds
With RSS, you can find the latest CrankyApe.com deals and new items added to our site without searching around the website
- you can even set it up to see the "headlines" in your reader before visiting the site.
RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication, and it is a tool that allows us to publish new information and updates
that will be picked up by users who subscribe to our RSS feeds.
Example: If you are interested in an RV, you could subscribe to our RV feed. Then whenever we add an RV to our inventory,
it is automatically added to the feed and it will show up when you view the feed, or it can show up as a short headline in
your RSS reader that will link to the appropriate CrankyApe.com page.
The different RSS feeds are listed to the right. The way you subscribe to these feeds depends on the RSS reader you're using,
but may be as simple as a single click.
|reading RSS feeds
Before you can use RSS, you will need some way to view the RSS feeds. This capability may be built into your Web browser
(if you have installed one of the latest browsers), your personal Web page (such as My Yahoo!) or you may need an RSS reader.

how to use them to subscribe to and read RSS feeds.*

|subscribing to RSS feeds
The RSS Feeds list on this page shows all of the feeds currently available on CrankyApe.com.
You can subscribe or unsubscribe to feeds at any time.
For RSS-Enabled Browsers
In general, clicking on one of the RSS links in the list will take you to the feed. From there,
you may be able to subscribe to it as a "live bookmark" or "favorite," or you could copy the feed's
address (or "URL") and paste it into your RSS reader or RSS-enabled Web page.
For Non-Enabled Browsers
For most browsers released prior to 2007, including Internet Explorer 6, you will need to copy the address
(or "URL") for the feed without trying to open the feed. This can usually be done by right-clicking
on the link and copying the link location (choose "Copy Shortcut" in Internet Explorer 6). You can
then paste the address into your RSS reader or RSS-enabled Web page.
Please Note: The way you subscribe (or unsubscribe) to a feed depends on the browser, web page,
or reader you are going to use. Please consult the documentation for your application to learn how to use it with RSS.
