UKBL ~ Scrolling Forum News In iFrame


Ever wanted a Customizable Scrolling Box where you could easily add your Forum News Or Links, but didn't want to use Javascript with line after line of code???

LIVE DEMO: http://www.ukbusinesslive.co.uk/forum/scroller.htm
and without the Iframe Border http://www.waltdisneyboards.com/forums.php

Then this is for you, A Small so easy to add script, thats customizable in every way.

I'm dedicating this hack to my friend "Arny" from the Walt Disney Boards, who put the idea into my head when he sent me a hidious Javascript, with about 100 lines of text that did basically the same, So thats for the idea Arny and I hope you enjoy the finished product.

Using a Basic iFrame code, You can add scrolling text, links and clickable pictures and with a small file to add where ever you want to put your new iFrame it couldn't be easier to do. You can adjut the size of the box to go the full width of your boards or to fit in a small corner, it really is adjustable ;)

you can see how to change the title, add the context and even a link :eek: You could even add clickable pictures as long at the dimensions fall within the width of the iframe :D

make a space under each news item using <br><br><br>

Once you've finished adding your content and editing the differnt sections, Save the file and upload it to your forums root directory as text.htm

If you want to change the content on a regular basis all you'll need to do is to edit the text.htm fil and just upload it to your server, remembering to chose over write. ;)

Thats it, so easy and a great addition to any forum

You could even use this for advertising and sponsors The choice is yours, basically its a simple iframe with a scroll feature, so enjoy :D

Don't forget to click Installed :up:
