New article alerts restored


You need never miss a newly published article again.

After a brief hiatus due to the total and essential restructuring of, normal service is resumed for anyone who would like to receive an email alert whenever a new article is published.

All you have to do is click on this link. If you have used this RSS feed before and already have an IFTTT account, you will probably still need to click on the Reconnect button. If you have not used this alert system before, clicking on the link will take you to a page where you can create an IFTTT account first.

We publish an average of at least two new articles every day except Sunday, more at the moment while we are publishing some of the most useful entries in our summer writing competition.

Don't forget that, if you haven't already, you can also sign up for our weekly Friday newsletter, which provides a summary and previews of all the previous week's articles, and links to them. If you are already a member, go to My account top right of any page and scroll down to tick the newsletter box. If you are not a member, sign up with your email at the top of the home page.

Later the same day: Steve Slatcher helpfully points out on the forum that if you get RSS updates via Thunderbird rather than IFTTT, for example, the URL to the RSS feed is:

Happy reading.
