An RSS document (called “feed”, “web feed”,or “channel”) includes topic and post  titles/links/excerpt publishing date and author’s name.

RSS feeds enable publishers to syndicate data automatically. A standard XML file format ensures compatibility with many different machines/programs. RSS feeds also benefit users who want to receive timely updates from favorite  forum or to aggregate data from many forums.
