FeedsAs well as viewing Indymedia Ireland's content directly from the website, you can also access it using what are known as "feeds". These are a structured form of the site's data which can be read by many other pieces of software, including desktop news readers which can aggregate all your favourite news sources and notify you when new news is available.
There are two feed technologies currently in use and they are known as RSS and Atom, both of which are supported by Indymedia Ireland. RSS is the more popular feed format, though Atom is more standardised and has some advantages over it.
To access our feeds just click on the one of the feed buttons on the left sidebar and if you have a feed reader installed it should automatically open up and subscribe you to the feed.
We have several feed types listed below which offer different forms of our content:
Summaries FeedThis is the default feed with just article titles and summaries. Its ideal if your using the feed to get notifications and then follow the link to the website.
Full Posts FeedThis feed contains the full article contents and is ideal if you wish to view the entire article in your news reader application. Please note however that if an article has attachments then RSS will only display the first one, while Atom feeds will display them all. This is a limitation of RSS.
Comment FeedsYou can also track comments posted to a particular article by monitoring a feed of that articles comments. To access these comment feeds just look at the bottom of each article where you will find an RSS and Atom button linking to the feed.
Podcast FeedWe also provide a Podcast feed of all our audio and video content, which can be viewed in iTunes or any other podcast client. Please note that only audio and video content which is quicktime or mpeg compliant will be included in this feed, as this is a reqirement of iTunes. To view non-quicktime compliant media such as windows media files please use the audio, video or media feeds listed below instead.
The iTunes button will take you to the Indymedia Ireland entry on the iTunes Music Store where you can subscribe to our feed. The podcast button will open the podcast in your installed newsreader (which will need to support enclosures if you wish to see the audio and video content).
Audiocast FeedsThis feed contains all the audio published to the site in most of the well known formats.
Videocast FeedsThis feed contains all the video published to the site in most of the well known formats. This feed is registered with Democracy TV which is a great way to easily access all of our video. Just download the program and serach ofr Indymedia in the channel guide.
Mediacast FeedsThis feed contains all the audio AND video published to the site in most of the well known formats.
Customised FeedsWhile our feeds default to showing all content you can customize a feed to show only a subset of content based on certain criteria. These criteria include
If the topic, type or region you wish to search for has spaces or hyphens you can leave them out, so Anti-War would become antiwar and Bin Tax would become bintax.
For spaces in the search_text replace them with %20, so ?search_text=bertie ahern would become ?search_text=bertie%20ahern
Note that all text is case insensitive.
If you have any queries about our feeds please let us know using the contact form.
