RSS and ATOM buttons?


On the right hand side of any page, I have Main Menu, then My LQ and then another Main Menu box. Under the last one I see a small red button marked RSS, and under that a blue button marked ATOM.

What are they for?

/just curious,

mark

RSS and Atom are standards used for content syndication. Take a look at:
