theheart.org: Tips to get the most out of itJul 16, 2008 17:38 EDT
You might have already have discovered the new features of the new theheart.org and gone through most of the clinical conditions. Here are a few tips to help you to get the most from it:
1- Copy the content of a Heartwire news story
If you want to copy a news item and you are using Internet Explorer 6 (or a previous version), you need to use the print function to be able to copy the content of the page. The print function opens a new window where the content is reformatted. There you can copy the content and paste it in a word document.
2- Access the Forum home page
If you are looking for the discussion Forum, we added a link directing you to the Forum home page in the footer of every page of the site. It’s now easier to access it.
3- Have the news come to you
Subscribe to theheart.org’s RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeds to get Heartwire news and other content delivered to your laptop or your desktop. Pages offering RSS feeds have this symbol in the address bar. All of our RSS feeds are also available from this page.
RSS feeds will save you time by automatically pulling for you fresh content from your favorite cardiology news site. You will not have to search anymore for new items on the subject that interests you the most. If you are not familiar with RSS feeds, here is an interesting four minute video that explains them.
4- Share the content with your community and friends
We added next to all the news sharing functionalities (see image). To share the content you either can use the “Send” button or the “Share” button. In the latter case, it enables you to share the content with your Facebook, Del.icio.us, Digg or Google community in one click.
These are only a few tips you can use to get the most from the new THO. We are working on other new ways to deliver our content as well. You are invited to share your tips to get the most of theheart.org.
