Ratburger.org, like most WordPress-based sites, offers RSS feeds which provide notification when new posts and comments are published. You will find links to these feeds in the “Meta” section of the sidebar at the right of the desktop site or the bottom of the home page on mobile devices under “Entries RSS” and “Comments RSS”.
These feeds are XML files in the RSS 1.0 standard format which list the most recent 25 entries and comments on the site. You can subscribe to these feeds with any compatible feed reader (sometimes called an “aggregator”), of which a multitude exist. You just supply the URL of the feed to the reader program, and it will show the recent entries. You can usually tell the reader to poll the feed, for example, every ten minutes, to inform you of new posts and comments.
For example, here is the Entries RSS feed as displayed by the QuiteRSS program, which is free and available for Linux/Unix, Windows, and MacOS.
QuiteRSS has an embedded Web browser, so you can see the entries and comments right in the reader. Other RSS feed readers may just provide links to the items.
Following RSS feeds allows you to follow activity on the site without the need to keep refreshing the site or cluttering up your E-mail in box with lots of notification messages.
You can also follow new posts (but not comments), by following Ratburger_org on Twitter, which is also linked in the “Meta” section.
