#309 Looking For News Ticker

Posted by paul on 23 April 2005 - 03:22 PM in WebDesign

Hi Dave,

Why don't you just use PHP. Use an array to store your links ( or a DB) and use rand(0, numberoflinks) to choose a random headline and link from your array and print it at the top of your page.

I am guessing you want that kind of effect? You may want to look at some other techniques to bring attention to the news which may be easier to use such as the CSS blink feature (though it is not widely supported at all :(.)

{text-decoration: blink;}

They use pretty complicated code that a beginner might not be able to understand. Their using timers and and some other advanced features. Make sure you correctly link to the script file. Also I am guessing that it is not working for you because your ID attributes do not match what the script is asking for. In WebDesign you can go to the Help menu and select JavaScript tutorial. It takes you to a good site that you can read over in a few minutes. With your programming background you should be able to catch on quickly. Its not too complicated, after you read the tutorial I am sure you will be able to work your way through it.

Just keep in mind your id attributes and what you name them. You should find on the globeandmail site that there is some id tags ending with numbers counting up. The ntStart function passes those to the ntGetEl function. Pay attention the ntRun, ntSetup, ntDraw, and ntClose functions. Those are the functions that are doing the effect that you want.
