View Full Version : News Bar Script - Use External File for data

03-20-2013, 09:14 PM
1) Script Title: News Bar

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

3) Describe problem:

Is it possible to make the script look for the "var msgs" and "var msg_url" in an external file? We want to use this News Bar Script to post emergency closure notifications and would like a few employees to be able to update the content. An external file (a text file perhaps) would be perfect since no special training would be needed to update it versus, say, Dreamweaver.

Very open to using any other script that would would allow a text file as input but also has navigation arrows (forward and back) so that a user can manually scroll through the news items.

Thank you.
