Text Ticker

I use this Text Ticker - code in a textbox on the front page to inform our members on important updates on the network:

<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p><marquee class="html-wpsites" direction="left" behavior="scroll" scrollamount="4" width="100%">YOUR TEXT HERE</marquee></p>

It works great, as it draws direct attention !

In some cases I would like to make the text clickable with a link. Any suggestions how to do that ?

  • Hi Marco!

    You can just instead of "YOUR TEXT HERE" put something like "<a href="your_link" target="_blank">YOUR TEXT HERE</a>", or if you wish it could be just one word or the part of teh whole phrase, so it will look like "YOUR <a href="your_link" target="_blank">TEXT</a> HERE". Also instead of "_blank" you can use "_self" if you wish the link to be opened in the same window.

    Hope it helps.

    • Kyryl, you are FAST !! As always... Thanks !

    nice tip!

  • I like it! but without a background it is hard to see. how do i put a black background with the text ticker?

    • Not sure, we use it in textboxes with our standard Design Studio settings: www.reefz.nl.

    • Hi there!

      You wish to add the background to the line of text, or to the whole module used to display this text ticker?

      Looking forward to hearing from you.

      Best regards,

      • just to the line of the text. :) 

        • Hi Matthew,

          it's necessary to add just style="background-color: red;" into the <marquee> tag, so it would look like this <marquee class="html-wpsites" direction="left" behavior="scroll" scrollamount="4" width="100%" style="background-color: red;">YOUR TEXT HERE</marquee>.

          Instead of red, you can use any color code you wish, for example, you can use this site https://htmlcolorcodes.com/color-picker/ to find the code of the color you are looking for.

          The one with a hashtag is the necessary one, then you can just copy and paste instead of "red" but don't forget to copy hashtag as well.

          Hope this helps.

          Best wishes,

          Ning Team.

      • Actually, adding background to a whole module sounds interesting to me as well ! :-)
