(Nov - 8) 'Wiki/RSS Explained - & Software'

Today - A Great Opportunity To Explore The Wonderful World Of Wiki.

What is Wiki?

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/wiki describes it as:

"A type of Web Site that allows the visitors themselves to easily add, remove, and otherwise edit and change some available content, sometimes without the need for registration."

You can download the software and try it out.

They say it's fairly easy to grasp, and they have a tutorial video available, for those who need assistance. You can not damage Tiddly Wiki or your browser, and you can add other features to your Wiki, such as an RSS Feed.

What is an RSS Feed?

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RSS_(file_format) describes it as:

"A family of web feed formats. The initials RSS are variously used to refer to the following standards..."

  • Really Simple Syndication (RSS 2.0)
  • Rich Site Summary (RSS 0.91, RSS 1.0)
  • RDF Site Summary (RSS 0.9 and 1.0)
"RSS Formats are specified in XML (a generic specification for data formats). RSS delivers its information as an XML file called an "RSS Feed", "Web Feed", "RSS Stream", or "RSS Channel"

You can add an RSS Feed to your Wiki or Web Site. Just follow the link on the Tiddlywiki Site!
Well...Happy Wikiing people and don't forget...We need your feedback so start posting!
