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



Ok so heres the Install..

Download the zip file and open up the scroller.txt file in notebook or similar

It pretty easy to follow just change the titles, and other bits to suit your site, To add content, you just need to add basic html code and it will show in your box.

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

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



The code is just bog standard HTML so feel free to edit and play around with it

find


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)

In Red above

and replace with


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

That will automatically make the box the same width as your forum

Gerry, is there a way to make it stop or pause for every "story" or paragraph? Or, would I have to add some messy js for that?

The idea is that the text scrolls if the user wants to stop it or pause then they move their cursor to the box and that would stop the srolling.

At the moment, you can lenghten the delay on which it starts scrolling but not stoping each one on a pause, it wouldn't be that hard to do, i just need to try it out a bit, just so i know it works.

It pauses on mouseover, but i'll look at the auto pause for you

Gerry, I've played with the settings and it's good without having to do the 'pause per story' that I spoke about before.

I noticed that in the title line, if I use a text link in there, it changes the color slightly. I'm assuming that I can adjust that in the settings. But, I haven't done anything with it yet since I'm taking care of some other non-related issues on my site.

Thanks again Gerry for helping me with this and I'm glad that some others have found it useful as well!

For another demo (without the "framed" area) you can use this link and the working demo is at the top of the left side column: http://www.waltdisneyboards.com/forums.php
