News Ticker Needed

I would like to see if someone would be able to put together a news ticker similar to this one here ...https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/show...ghlight=ticker

This one is ok but I want to be able to add more to it on the fly instead of having to open the template and adding it from there ...So maybe something like the RSS feed menu where you can just keep adding news or other info?

MarkFL you think you can cook something up for me?

Not too long ago, I developed a "Forum Marquee" product for another user, that allows you to display scrolling messages, specific to individual forums, and/or globally. It uses StyleVars to control the appearance.

I have attached it, give it a try and let me know what changes you would like.

Can you post a screenshot of how you've got the settings defined?

Okay, in the "Marquee Messages" setting, try:

107,253,70|TEST,TEST 2

You want for each line a comma-delimited forumid list, a pipe, and then a comma delimited list of messages for those forums.

What you should get with that is the 3 messages, all showing up in those 3 forums.

The messages are getting pulled from those 3 forums ... or do I have to create a new thread or new reply for it to show up from any of those 3 forums? .
