1) Script Title: Pausing up-down message scroller

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

Hello. A great script!
Does anyone know if it is possible to modify the script so the messages scroll down rather than up?
Thanks for any help

Sure, try replacing the default script in the HEAD section of the page with the below instead:


<script type="text/javascript">

/*Example message arrays for the two demo scrollers*/

var pausecontent=new Array()
pausecontent[0]='<a href="http://www.javascriptkit.com">JavaScript Kit</a><br />Comprehensive JavaScript tutorials and over 400+ free scripts!'
pausecontent[1]='<a href="http://www.codingforums.com">Coding Forums</a><br />Web coding and development forums.'
pausecontent[2]='<a href="http://www.cssdrive.com" target="_new">CSS Drive</a><br />Categorized CSS gallery and examples.'

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>'
