I have to add a horizontal news ticker/scroller into a web page and although I have found lots of examples online (many contain code that you buy or have to credit the writer) but I would like to do this myself.
Does anyone know of any good online examples or tutorials?
(Also it has to be standards compliant and easily updateable by a non techie!)
I could probably give you
I could probably give you 1000 reasons to not put a scroller on your page. The top two that I can think of are
- No one ever looks at them
- Anyone that happens to look at them never bothers waiting for the interesting item they spotted to roll around again
If it's part of a spec you received for a job you probably have no choice though. :sigh: (the second and third one on the list are probably what you need).
News snippets are far better than scrolling content.
Thanks Triumph I'll try
Thanks Triumph :thumbsup:
I'll try some of those scripts, I did say to the client it was a little out of date/tacky but they insisted. Every one of their competitors has it on their site, so they wanted it too!

They must think a lot of their competitors. If it were me, I'd want to stand out and be more modern than my competitors but c'est la vie.
I know what you're going through. People still want splash screens and blinky text and scrollers and etc. There really is no accounting for taste.
