1) Script Title: gAjax RSS Ticker (hosted)

2) Script URL (on DD):

3) Describe problem: How do I go about making a fade transition from page to page? It would be similar to this script but with dissolves or fade transitions, rather than scrolling:

This is relatively simple to do by using jQuery on top of the existing script. To do so, first, add a reference to the jQuery libary in the HEAD section of your page (in red):

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.google.com/jsapi?key=YOUR-API-KEY"></script>

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.2/jquery.min.js"></script>

<script type="text/javascript" src="gfeedfetcher.js"></script>

<script type="text/javascript" src="gajaxticker.js">

* gAjax RSS Ticker- (c) Dynamic Drive (www.dynamicdrive.com)
* Requires "gfeedfetcher.js" class
* This notice MUST stay intact for legal use
* Visit http://www.dynamicdrive.com/ for full source code


Then, use the modified .js file below. The value 400 as it appears inside this file dictates the duration of the fade in mililsecs- you can change that to something else if desired.

Thanks DD. Looks good. Looks like it fades in but not out, but it still looks great. Good work. Nice scripts here.
