The guardian.co.uk RSS URL, which had been deactivated in summer 2016, was subsequently reactivated in autumn/winter 2016.
The theguardian.com RSS URL continues to work. I think it’s actually the same feed as the guardian.co.uk one.
The screenshot on the relevant Guardian help page is still out of date. But the rest of the page is, I think, correct.
Original Post (2016-07-07)
Until 8 days ago, my RSS feed URL for the Guardian newspaper was: http://feeds.guardian.co.uk/theguardian/rss But now that returns a 404.
So now I am using https://www.theguardian.com/uk/rss and I haven’t noticed any difference in the kinds of articles or the quantity.
As the RSS Circus post says, “the Guardian new design totally hides RSS feeds”. So the screenshot on the relevant Guardian help page is totally out of date. At first I assumed that meant the whole help page must be out of date. But no; just the screenshot.
Here are some more example feed URLs that seem to work:
- https://www.theguardian.com/profile/richard-dawkins/rss derived from the corresponding webpage
- https://www.theguardian.com/uk/commentisfree/rss derived from the corresponding webpage
- https://www.theguardian.com/uk/technology/rss derived from the corresponding webpage
