Before you start
ADD-ON BUGS (Please Read):
You may encounter some problems in some templates with the "auto scrolling" add-on in IE due to bugs in this browser. In this case you may want to use the code for sample #1 on this page because it is compatible in all templates.
In some cases the scroller will not work on your local hard drive but may work when uploaded. In some cases your template DOCTYPE may be the problem. Be aware Allwebco does NOT provide support for these errors. If this scroller works in your template in IE then it will cause no problems and will work in all other newer browsers.
There are no know bugs if you use code from Example #1 on this page.
Your display options
The samples on this page are showing newsfeeds in small windows on the right. If you want the content right on an HTML page instead, such as on your home or links pages, skip the next section and go right to "News Feed Services" later on this page. If you want to use a small window like the samples on the right at your site, on any page or in a .js file such as in your sidebar.js or under the links on a vertical menu in your menu.js keep reading.
Example #1 "Blastcasta.com" feed
The first example on this page is using a news feed from Blastcasta.com.
We are using a static IFrame to display this news feed. Download this add-on and follow the steps on the included "help-news_iframe.html".
Example #2 "Worldpress.org" feed
Example two is using a feed from Worldpress.org. To add a scroller as seen in example #2, first, download and setup the scrolling news IFrames script. Come back to this page and download the "Worldpress news page" below to replace the "news_win.htm".
Example #3 "Freenewsfeed.com" feed
Example three is using a feed from Freenewsfeed.com. To add a scroller as seen in example #3, first, download and setup the scrolling news IFrames script. Come back to this page and download the "Worldpress news page" below to replace the "news_win.htm".
Using other news feeds
The feed I want to use offers only RSS feeds
RSS is tricky to setup. Here are some options you can check.
Worldpress.org | Go to Worldpress.org Newsfeeds
Send2Press | Go to Send2Press Newsfeeds
Blastcasta.com | Go to Blastcasta.com Newsfeeds
FreeNewsFeed.com | Go to FreeNewsFeed.com
News4Sites | Go to News4sites.com
Just did a quick test of one news feed on this site and it had a nice ticker effect. It looks like they have a few options for adding news feeds to a website.
