Tools for web site administrators
Folkjam.org provides a handful of useful tools to web admins who maintain folk music web sites.
If you want to direct your users to folkjam.org, we provide folkjam logos in varying sizes on our linking guidelines page.
We provide access to our database of jams through RSS, which is an internet standard for delivering feeds from web sites. What sort of feeds? Well, that depends on the web site. A news site is likely to provide a list of current news headlines. A jam site provides lists of jams. You can read more about what RSS feeds are available from our site on our jam feeds page.
What can you do with an RSS feed? A whole bunch. Modern web browsers allow users to create dynamic bookmarks based on RSS feeds. These bookmark lists show the current subjects from a site's RSS feed. Or, an RSS client can be installed on your computer that will notify you when there are new subjects on a site's RSS feed. And, most critically for you as a web site administrator, you can pull content from an RSS feed and place it in your web pages.
We encourage you to maintain all of your organization's jams on folkjam.org. Your users will always see current information on local jams, and more people will be able to find your jam sessions through folkjam.org.
