    Arrow RSS Ticker

    Hi

    I have looked around the site at all the many RSS Scrollers & tickers but it must be my small brain as I have been unable to get then to work.

    I am looking for a simple RSS Ticker that I can add the below link that is for Cat fish Fishing RSS link through google.

    Any help much appreciated.
    Thanking you in anticipation

    Billy

    You could try:

    http://code.google.com/apis/feed/

    If your server has PHP, I can make up one of the ones from Dynamic Drive for you. If it doesn't, I might be able to make up the Dynamic Drive version of the Google one for you.

    Does your server have PHP?

    Thank you for your reply.

    I have several feeds from both Google and Pipes, as you can appreciate the depth of Fishing News From around the World. I am wanting to put different tickers on different pages ie: On the Carp fishing page a Carp News Ticker.

    I wish to thank you for your kind help in this, and look forward to the result.

    Thanking you in anticipation

    Thumbs up RSS Feeds to Ticker?

    I came across this RSS Feed and added my feed for Cod fishing.

    HTML Code:
    TEST RSS TICKER FOR COD FISHING
    
    <div id="TickerBC47203589" class="bc_ticker" style="overflow: auto;border-style: solid;border-width: 2;border-color: #0000FF;background-color: #FFFF00;">
    <table width="100%">
    	<tr>
    		<td width="10" style="vertical-align: top;" style="color: #0000CC; font-size: 12pt; font-family: Times;"><a id="TickerPrevBC47203589" href="javascript: ;" onclick="PrevTickerBC47203589();" class="bc_tickerarrow" style="text-decoration: none; color: #0000CC;">&laquo;</a></td>
    		<td id="TickerContentBC47203589" class="bc_tickercontent" style="vertical-align: top;background-color: #FFFF00;">
    			<a id="TickerLinkBC47203589" href="javascript: ;" class="bc_tickerlink" style="text-decoration: none;" target="_top"><b><span id="TickerTitleBC47203589" class="bc_tickertitle" style="color: #0000CC; font-size: 12pt; font-family: Times;"></span></b></a>			<span id="TickerSummaryBC47203589" class="bc_tickersummary" style="color: #000000; font-size: 10pt; font-family: Times;"></span>
    		</td>
    		<td width="10" style="vertical-align: top;" style="color: #0000CC; font-size: 12pt; font-family: Times;"><a id="TickerNextBC47203589" href="javascript: ;" onclick="NextTickerBC47203589();" class="bc_tickerarrow" style="text-decoration: none; color: #0000CC;">&raquo;</a></td>
    	</tr>
    </table>
    <!-- DO NOT CHANGE OR REMOVE THE FOLLOWING NOSCRIPT SECTION OR THE BLASTCASTA NEWS TICKER WILL NOT FUNCTION PROPERLY. -->
    <noscript><a href="http://www.blastcasta.com/" title="News Ticker by BlastCasta"><img src="http://www.poweringnews.com/images/tp.gif" border="0" /></a></noscript>
    </div>
    
    <script id="scr47203589" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript"> /* <![CDATA[ */ 
    setTimeout('document.getElementById(\'scr47203589\').src = (document.location.protocol == \'https:\' ? \'https\' : \'http\') + \'://www.poweringnews.com/ticker-js.aspx?feedurl=http%3A//www.google.com/alerts/feeds/03413850423032271991/6201285940892229668&changedelay=12&maxitems=-1&showsummary=1&objectid=47203589\'', 500);
     /* ]]> */ </script>
    This is very similar to what I am wanting to do but in a ticker form, from right to left.

    The colour fits my website of Blue and Yellow but I would like to use my own server at world fishing-news.com

    Yes my server uses PHP

    Thank you for your help

    The feeds are a mixture of google RSS feeds and others I use Pipes as the RSS feed I hope this helps it never sounds correct when you type it.

    I could be making about 20 diferent tickers each with there own RSS feed.

    A ticker like this (just the ticker part, I know it's not a feed, and I know the colors are different than what you say you want):

    http://home.comcast.net/~jscheuer1/side/marqueeh.htm

    Or did you have something else in mind? Please be specific about how you want it displayed because - actually, since you have PHP, getting the feed is the easy part. Before I go coding the presentation, I want to know what exactly we're going for. I already have something like:

    http://www.dynamicdrive.com/dynamici...ller/index.htm

    which can be configured as to colors. Would that work?

    That looks fine to me, Continuous Content Horizontal Marquee - Demo Great is it fed from a RSS feed?

    If it will work with this feed http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.ru...d1&_render=rss

    That would be great, I am able to parse the information I want, I just need to put in the RSS Feed into the code if that is possible.

    Your first one is great I have tried the other one but my small fishing brain could not compute resulting in a head ace and confusion so any of the two if I can get them to work please.
    Thank you

    Well, those were just examples of ideas. I have something worked out that's real simple (to use) and seems to fit what you say you want. But I'll have to wait a bit to upload it. It needs a few finishing touches and a little explanation. I should have time for that later today, or this weekend.

    OK, here it is:

    Attachment 4217

    There are lots of things that could be configured. But all you need is a folder structure and files like that in the archive, the styles and the scrpt tags on the demo page and a call like so in the body right after an empty div:

    Code:
    <div id="irishanglers" class="marquee"></div>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    new rsscrawler('http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.run?_id=01cac7772e5b26ab65968cd03ed3d8d1&_render=rss', 'irishanglers');
    </script>
    Notice the id of the empty div is the same as the second parameter in the call. The first parameter is the address to the feed. The class name as shown is also required.

    There are two on the demo page, but you can have just one, or as many as you like.

    These marquees are 100% in width. So if you don't want them going the full width of the page, put them inside something with a defined width, ex:

    Code:
    <div style="width: 700px;">
    <div id="irishanglers" class="marquee"></div>
    <script type="text/javascript">
    new rsscrawler('http://pipes.yahoo.com/pipes/pipe.run?_id=01cac7772e5b26ab65968cd03ed3d8d1&_render=rss', 'irishanglers');
    </script>
    </div>
    You can play around with the styles. But if you change heights, padding, margin, and/or font sizes or possibly even font family, you may have to do a balancing act among those various values to get it to look right. If only changing those things slightly, it may work out without any extra thought. If you have any questions about that or anything, let me know.

    And if you want help with it:

    Please post a link to a page on your site that contains the problematic code so we can check it out.
    - John
