1) Script Title: Pausing Up-Down Scroller

2) Script URL (on DD): http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamicindex2/crosstick.htm

3) Describe problem: I would like to add JUST the second scroller to my site. However, I can't seem to correctly omit all the related coding (for the header and body sections) for the first one. Would someone be so kind as to help me with this?! THANKS A BUNCH! :)

Hmmm should be very simple to distinguish between the two's codes, but anyhow, here's the 2nd demo's code exclusively:


<style type="text/css">

#pscroller2{
width: 350px;
height: 20px;
border: 1px solid black;
padding: 3px;
}

#pscroller2 a{
text-decoration: none;
}

.someclass{ //class to apply to your scroller(s) if desired
}

</style>

<script type="text/javascript">


var pausecontent2=new Array()
pausecontent2[0]='<a href="http://www.news.com">News.com: Technology and business reports</a>'
pausecontent2[1]='<a href="http://www.cnn.com">CNN: Headline and breaking news 24/7</a>'
pausecontent2[2]='<a href="http://news.bbc.co.uk">BBC News: UK and international news</a>'

</script>

HI DDAMIN,
I was wondering if this particular scroller would not keep my page content from not being seen by the search engines as opposed to using an iframe which would be useless for search engines.

thanks in advance,

Stoney
