Are you an administrator of a Web site and need to create RSS feeds for it Want to create professional RSS feeds without the complication of RSS technology Then a RSS builder is the perfect solution for you! Here is a powerful and intuitive RSS feed creating tool I will recommend to you. That is CITA RSS Aggregator which came from Constructive IT Advice. Why not give this RSS feeds builder a try and make RSS feeds for your Web site yourself now!

CITA RSS Aggregator is a RSS reader and generator, that we can use to keep track of our favorite RSS and Atom feeds. It also includes integrated weather updates for selected cities from the WeatherChannel, as well an RSS Builder to create RSS feeds. The main interface is rather plain and simple, but it comes with some decent features under the hood, that include keyword alerts, support for password login, per-channel settings, proxy support, support for RSS enclosures (Podcasts) and a tool to remove persistent adverts from RSS feeds.

Following are some key functions and benefits of this RSS reader and generator, including:

CITA RSS Aggregator contains no spyware or adware. There are no hidden activities. Nor is there a professional version. We can get the full version for free and without any hindrance or restriction.

CITA RSS Aggregator comes with context-sensitive help and lets us know if there is a new version available. CITA RSS Aggregator supports for all the major RSS and Atom standards and versions (and flexibility to correctly interpret some feeds that do not adhere to the standards). Flexible support for downloading Podcasts and other types of enclosure - including BitTorrent files.

CITA RSS Aggregator provides a lot of alert methods for us. Alert boxes appear on top of other windows and do not take the focus (we can continue typing an Email, for example, without disruption). Each alert shows us a brief description of all new and changed items in a given channel. Alert box size automatically adjusts to the length and number of new and changed items. We can specify alert box colours, text size, opacity and screen position. We specify what, if any, sound is played when an alert is displayed. We can get a simple facility to identify items that are specially important. These are shown as newsflashes which have separately defined colours, text sizes and opacity. Special purpose alerts - with separately defined colours, text sizes and opacity - to let us know about new enclosures. An option to allow us to "snooze" the Aggregator for a specified time period; we do not get any alerts while the Aggregator is snoozing. We can suppress on-screen alerts for any or all channels. We can temporarily suppress all alerts from all channels regardless of any other settings. CITA RSS Aggregator shows an icon in our system tray which changes if we have new or changed news items available, or if the Aggregator is not monitoring for changes for any reason.

CITA RSS Aggregator provides flexible methods for reviewing news items. Headlines shown in the alert boxes - Channels and items are shown in a standard tree view; icons show us the status of each channel and item. We can view channels as a simple list, or we can organise them into categories. Extensive use of tooltips to display additional information - Click a channel to display a summary of news available in a channel; click links in the summary to show detailed news items. Click an item to show detail directly - Option to show summaries and news items directly from alert boxes. Support for mice with Back and Forward buttons - We can choose to open any web page in our default web browser so we can review it at our leisure while continuing to receive news alerts. We can get a button that places a shortcut to any page onto our desktop. That way we can go back to any page any time we want, or send the link on to someone else that might find it interesting.

CITA RSS Aggregator helps us find feeds. We can change all the Aggregator's settings from a single options window. Support for access to secure feeds protected by user ids, passwords and encryption: Support for both basic HTML access control as well as session-based (cookie-based) access controls. Passwords are stored using secure triple DES encryption. We can choose to have passwords encrypted with an internal key - or one that we specify (ensuring people cannot see our passwords even if they have their own copy of the Aggregator). CITA RSS Aggregator looks for and removes potentially malicious HTML elements from feeds. Since they are capable of executing programs on our PC, they can be used by unscrupulous feed providers to by-pass some of our security measures. CITA RSS Aggregator displays a warning message in the feed summary so we can see this has happened and - if we have any concern about the feed provider - unsubscribe from the feed.

CITA RSS Aggregator supports a number of methods to reduce the data transfer overhead when communicating with feed suppliers. This ensures CITA RSS Aggregator follows accepted good practice and protects us from defensive actions from feed suppliers against "badly-behaved" Aggregators. For example, suppliers can raise spurious error messages and can send truncated feed data. The supported methods include: Use of "Etag" and "Last-Modified" request headers to allow a feed server to use a short message to tell the Aggregator there have been no changes since the last time it looked for updates to the feed. CITA RSS Aggregator supports data compression. This significantly reduces the data that needs to be sent by servers that also support compression. CITA RSS Aggregator supports the industry-standard gzip and deflate standards.

CITA RSS Aggregator identifies periods when we are not using our PC and automatically stops looking for feed updates. It resumes automatically when we start using our PC again. This ensures the information we get when returning to our PC is as up to date as it can be as well as cutting data transfer overhead. We can, of course, alter the inactivity period or disable the feature altogether if we prefer.

CITA RSS Aggregator displays channel summaries and weather information using web pages. The appearance of these pages is determined by CSS files. We can alter the appearance of these pages (for example, we can: switch to a different font; or change the way links are shown) by creating our personal CSS files from the ones we supply.

Additional features of CITA RSS Aggregator include: Full support for proxy servers; CITA RSS Aggregator can inherit Windows and Internet Explorer settings, or override them. Proxy server definitions can be by-passed for individual channels in order to support intranet or development access. Can be used from multiple PCs sharing the same data. Can be used by multiple users of the same PC each with their own data and much more.
