View Full Version : Help with flash ticker

06-22-2007, 09:34 PM
I have found this script for a news ticker. It feeds headlines from an RSS feed eg: BBC into a spinning newspaper headline. It is very cool in itself, however I want to be able to change it to read say 4 or 5 headlines, one after another of my own creation. You can click on the paper to go to the website that the RSS feed came from, but I dont want that.

So can I do or someone help me to either:

1] Change the code so I can put headlines into it myself

2] Set up my own RSS feed that I can create my own headlines to feed into it

3] Does anyone know where I can get what Im after instead of this one

The site its on is: http://www.coverpop.com/flowpop/

Code is:

<style class="text/css">
iframe#flowpop { margin: 0; left-margin: auto; right-margin: auto; width:300px; height: 250px; border:none; padding:0; background-color: #000000; }
