Free Content from NEA
Local and state NEA affiliates are free to reprint any content on NEA.org that is NEA-copyrighted content (does not include third-party owned content, which is indicated by a separate copyright notice at the bottom of the articles).
Really Simple Syndication – more commonly known as RSS Feeds – affords you a free and easy way to add new content to your website. An RSS Feed is an automatically-generated summary of information on another web site. So when the other website’s RSS feed changes, your website will be automatically changed too. (Learn more about RSS feeds.)
If you know how to cut and paste, then you have all the skills necessary to display an RSS feed on your website. Learn how at Feed2JS.
