SCORE Motoring News

We are pleased to announce a new development for the SCORE site.

SCORE Motoring News is a bespoke RSS feed reader designed to bring you stories, facts and figures from news providers around the world.

The reader is accessed from a new link in the last row of the message board header (visible only to logged-in members).

Image

The index of feeds is organised by the nationality of the originating news provider. A strong emphasis has been placed on reflecting the diversity of the SCORE membership around the world. Apologies to members of nations/languages which are not yet represented. I plan to expand the index as further feeds are discovered and reported to me.

Image

RSS feeds will be presented in a familiar colour scheme, based on that of our message board:

Whilst most feeds comprise only text, some contain images:

In all cases, members can click item headings to see the originator's full news article.

A great deal of effort has been put into creating a mechanism by which all feeds are cached on the SCORE server. This ensures good fast performance and minimises the number of hits on originators' servers.

The following controls are provided. By all means try them out but in general the default (unchecked) settings should be best. Full explanations of these settings is provided in the reader's splash-screen page.

Image

Access is limited to members by the Message Board login. Guests are appetised but will not get past the splash-screen.

Many thanks to those who undertaken testing and provided valuable input.

Further feedback and suggestions for further RSS feeds will be most welcome.

I have added lots more links to the SCORE Motoring News index, including some from otherwise unaddressed countries.

Happy reading news-junkies.
