Commissioner Website Updates Now Available Via RSS

The Commissioner website main pages (the ones present on the side navigation) are now all accessible via RSS feed! Keep up to date on the latest updates to the Commissioner webpage using RSS.

What is an RSS feed?

An RSS feed reader converts and the latest updates from websites into an easy to read format. An RSS feed takes the headlines, summaries, and update notices, and then links back to articles on your favorite website’s page.

This content is distributed in real time, so that the top results on the RSS feed are always the latest published content for a website.

If you want to stay up-to-date every time the service team updates a page on the website, this is how to do it.

Awesome! This is a super great update. I know I’ll use it to track changes and see updates.

Feedly is my go-to reader. It is pretty good.

Hi Matt, if this works or doesnt work for you can you please let us know? WE might be having some tech difficulties

@Matt.Johnson Yeah Feedly!!! Yeah for RSS!

Yes, it seems as though _https://www.scouting.org/commissioners/ (I put the underbar in here since it kept wanting to format it as a link) doesn’t quite have the feed right. Feedly wants to use a beta feature to make a feed. If I use something like Ars Technica, it shows follow, which means it finds the feed.

BSA Health and Safety used to have a feed, but no longer updates / uses it.
