Who can display the ESSE RSS feed?
The contents of the ESSE feed is under copyright.
That is the reason why only websites that are run for or by non-profit organisations and associations linked with teaching English or English studies, or research in the field of English studies, are allowed to display the feed. This includes primarily the websites of national associations that are part of ESSE, but also the sites of other scholarly associations, as well as the sites of colleges and universities, and the private sites of teachers, academics, and researchers, in Europe and throughout the world.
Why carry the ESSE feed on the websites of national associations?
The ESSE feed carries information that is useful to scholars. By including the ESSE feed within your national website, you provide an additional service to the members of your national association. Members who come and check the national news will also see the ESSE announcements; and members who come to check the ESSE announcements will also see the national news carried by your website. All in all, finding the two types of information on the same site may make your website more attractive to your members, and will probably increase the total number of visitors.In what way is a feed so different from a mere link?
The main difference is that the original contents of the feed are displayed within the host site, as if imbedded in it. When visitors to your site click on a link, they know that they are being directed to another site, whereas when they read the contents of a feed they have the feeling that they are remaining within the host site - and they are indeed.
How can the ESSE feed be included within a website?
If you know how to display a feed, do it your own way. Professionals can display feeds in very striking ways.
If you are not used to displaying feeds, the simplest way is to use the same RSS-Express-Light script that ESSE uses. In this case, all you have to do is enter the following lines of code in the source of the page, in the place where you wish the feeds to be displayed:
