Question about SRK's frontpage image ticker/scrolling thingy


#1

Hey guys, I was wondering if someone could tell me what exactly do you need to do to make an image ticker like on the front page. I’m not HTML or CSS savvy but I’m quick to learn. I’d like to emulate that same thing more or less for a website I’m working on. Thanks! :smiley:

If you want a ready built one that you can customize (gotta pay a couple of bucks):

If you want to develop your own, I’d start with the well known Ryan Fait sticky footer and go from there:

And a slightly different take based on Ryan Fait’s sticky footer:

I dont think he meant the footer, but the slide show on the front page.

You can do that with jQuery using a list of different images, but gl doing that if you don’t know html/css nor have any familiarity with javascript.

anyway…

Oh, duh, I totally misread his post. :oops:

Use jquery like kwago mentioned, you’ll find tutorials on the net including easy to use pre-packaged ones that only need you to tinker with the image URL’s and variables like slide length.

If you’re not really familiar with HTML/CSS/Javascript, I hope you’re ready to learn. :slight_smile:
