The DIVA website provides
a variety of RSS feeds, depending on which part of our site you are
in. Essentially, our RSS feeds allow you to keep up to date with
changes to our site without you having to remember to keep checking
if anything has changed. For more on what RSS feeds are and how to
use them see this explanation by Videojug.
At the top of the right hand side bar, with the social sharing
options, you will see the RSS icon. Not every page on DIVA has its
own RSS feed. If the page you are on doesn't have an RSS feed of
its own, clicking the RSS icon will bring you to this page. If the
page does have an RSS feed, this icon links directly to it.
The DIVA website provides the following types of RSS feeds:
- Directory updates - examples include a new organisation being
listed, or a more specifically a new organisation being listed in a
- Updated listings - subscribing to an RSS feed for a specific
organisation,location or a service will let you know when it is
- Events - get updates on events as they are added to the DIVA
- Jobs - get updates on jobs as they are added to the DIVA
- Other new content - all other parts of the site, such as
support pages, will also have RSS feeds available. So, if any new
information is added to these sections you can keep informed of the
changes as they happen.
The entire directory
As you browse our directory, you will be able to get updates
about new or amended entries. From the top of the
directory, the RSS icon will provide you with a feed of
all updates. So, if any organisation, location or
service is added or amended, it will appear in this feed.
If you drill down through the directory you can get more
targeted updates for specific attributes ('attributes' is the
overall term for categories, people and places). If you browse down
to the bottom of any branch of the directory tree, the RSS icon
will link to a feed for that specific attribute. For instance, if
you browse to Neighbourhood issues (this is
within Categories --> Local Issues) the RSS feed there will tell
you about any organisation, location or service that has changed,
or been added, specifically within Neighbourhood issues.
So, from the very top of the directory tree there is an RSS feed
for the entire directory and at the very bottom of the directory
tree there are RSS feeds for every attribute. However, there are no
RSS feeds for the intermediate levels. So, for instance, using the
above example, there is no RSS feed for Local Issues.
