As a request for a friend, i made this simple to add news ticker using a simple html script from Dynamic Drive and added it to the navbar, left of the login box, Now your members will be able to see up to date news everytime they login


So Easy to Install

First Download the zip file and open the ticker.txt file in a text editor like notepad

To legally use the code from Dynamic Drive please retain their credits within the code

Now we save that file and we need to copy and paste the entire contents of that file to our Navbar, so...
