I am trying to get an image to scroll across the screen in a marquee...like text but an image. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks.

Yes.. Learn JAVA. Or use Flash!

Other solution is to find a script, which MIGHT be Javascript, but is NOT JAVA.

You don't ned Flash or Java to have a marquee with an image.

Insert a marquee in your page. Insert also the image you want to display, in your page. Right click the image and select html. When the image html showes, copy it, and close the html window.

Now double click the marquee, and paste, instead of any thext, the code you have pasted.

Publish the page

Delete the image

Publish again.

That wont work in all browsers, IE: Firefox for one has trouble with marquees, the marquee is a IE thing or microsoft developed tool. Firefox doesnt do well with fade ins etc either. If you want it to work across all browsers it has to be scripted in some manner, or programmed as in java or flash, or javascripts.

Hi Karen,

i can't know about older FF versions. The above works just fine in IE 5, 6, 7, 8, FF2 and Opera.

I believe that this covers a good 98 - 99% of possible site visitors, and is SO easy to do.

But in BlueVoda when I use the Marquee it doesn't have a place to upload an image it is only text. How do I upload that image?

Never minda, I just read your post wrong...That was easy! Thanks a lot!

I have used a marquee in the old blue voda but when I upgraded I can no loger get my images to appear. I just get text scrolling, the html but no image. How do I get the images to appear?

You may have to re-insert the images.

I am still having trouble with the marquee feature in the 10.12 version of blue voda. I load all my picture on the page, copy the html and paste it into the marquee properties gereral tab. When I publish the page there is only the html text scrolling not the pictures? Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

I'm afraid you are not doing anything wrong.
The problem is that the new marquee can accept html tags, so it has been transformed to convert quotes in the corresponding HTML tags.
As a result, you can't put an image in the marquee any more, unless you use the following steps:

1. Insert the marquee in your page as you want it. Set background solor, type of scrolling etc just as you would do normally.
2. Insert a HTML object in your page. Make it the same size as the marquee. Don't worry about it's position right now, we will fix that in a moment.
3. Right click the marquee, select HTML, and Copy the entire html of the marquee as it appears.
4. Open Notepad, and paste the code of the marquee. It should look like:

<marquee direction="left" height="150" scrolldelay="90" scrollamount="6" behavior="scroll" loop="0" style="background-color:#000000;" id="Marquee1"><font style="font-size:13px" color="#00FF00" face="Arial">Marquee</font></marquee>

Now, the part in RED is what will appear in the marquee. We need to replace it with the image.

5. Now, insert the image in your page, dimension it as required, and right click it. Select html and copy the code.
6. Go in Notepad, and delete the part in RED, and paste, exactly in replacement, the image code as you have copied it.Your code now should look like:

<marquee direction="left" height="150" scrolldelay="90" scrollamount="6" behavior="scroll" loop="0" style="background-color:#000000;" id="Marquee1"><img src="my_image.jpg" id="Image1" alt="" align="top" border="0" style="width:78px;height:75px;"></marquee>

Copy the entire code from Notepad. Paste it into the HTML box. Preview your page, you should be seeing BOTH the original marquee, with only the text "Marquee" scrolling, and a second one, in the position of the html box, with the image scrolling.

If everything is ok, publish the page. Now delete the original marquee AND the image from your page, move the html box in the position where the marquee should appear, and publish again.

All working and I have now learnt something new again. What a great system this is.

Hi, might be worth optimizing the images in the marquee? its bogging the page down a bit.

Good luck.

Hi, I did everything which navaldesign suggests to insert photos in a marque. # months ago it worked. Now the same method does not work for me, I am using firefox. Has something changed in BV? or could I be making a mistake?

03-25-2009, 03:39 PM
No, it still works, so probably you have some mistake.

Great tip, I was about to use flash to do this simple operation, I have tested it by adding 10 images in the marques, scrolling behind each other, and it scrolls like a dream.
