Hi all,

Does anyone know if it is possible to have the RSS Feed widget scroll up? My client wants it this way.

www.yellowbrickroadconsulting.co.uk is the site (top of right hand column)

Cheers

Hi, Jacknife

you only have to change the css-file, which refers to the widget. Or you have to set a "div class" into the widget .ss file.

overflow: scroll;

Bes tregards,

Hi,

on my opinion it is possible to edit the RSS-Widget. But I have to look into the source code, then I can help you better. When is your deadline for your modification? Because I don't knwo, when I've time to look into the source code.

Pascal,

There is not a strict deadline, but I would like to get it done as soon as possible as this is the last bit to do on the site. :)

Cheers for the help.

Hi Jacknife,

Many thanks. So I looked over the .ss file of the RSS-Widget. You only have to implement a vertical scroll newsticker based on Javascript. The control block are a loop, so the different feeds will include and implement in a Javascript Array(). You can use any Javascript-script for free.

Best regards,

Pascal
