[CONTRIBUTION] News Scroller Box - HTML Version

Recommended Posts

Please bear in mind that this solution uses the marquee tag.

 

The marquee tag is a non-standard extension to HTML introduced by Microsoft and seems to also work with newer Mozilla browsers but will not work with older Netscape browsers or opera.

 

Correct me if I'm wrong.

Yes, you're right, but I prefer to have problem with old browsers only...that to have problem with old browsers and new ones, without a Virtual Java machine installed :(

you could implement a simple check and if the browser is not marquee compatible show a java based one.

Hehe. And to make it realy smart I would suggest to test on:

 

- Flash

- Java

- JavaScript

- Marquee

 

If the marquee solution works in 90% of all cases - go for it. I only wanted to make sure that we all know that the marquee tag might not work in new browsers that will hit the stage in - say - 6 months.

Well if you insist: have a look at www.php.net/get_browser

Now all you need is 2000 if else statements.. grin.

 

The marquee tag is nice because it loads so quickly.

IMHO it is the first MS-invented html addon that's nice.

One small hooray for Bill and his team.

And it beats DHTML menu's on a non-compatible browser ;)

Great contribution but I have a question. Is it possible to include this in the main area and not in the left or right column? I'd like to have mine right below the welcoming text and above the categories box. Thanks.

Nice job Javier,

 

I definatly like being able to alter al of the colors. I wasn't able to do that in the java version because parts of it were in pre-compiled C++. (shrug)

 

Here'a another working version.
