Notices Ticker

This plug-in allows short notices to be displayed on your blog.

  • Put the complete plug-in folder into your WordPress plug-in directory (if this doesnŐt make sense it probably isnŐt something you should be trying) and activate it.
  • Define the text of your notices using the Notices form at Tools » Notices. Note that HTML is allowed in the text but be careful to avoid the " (double quote) character, use ' (single quote) instead. Each notice has these attributes:
  • Notice text (the notice itself).
  • The number of days the notice will be valid for.
  • Once created, a checkbox indicating if the notice is active.
  • The date is the date the notice is valid from and is the date the notice was created (or last updated).
  • Use the Notices widget (Appearance » Widgets) to show a sidebar widget that scrolls the chosen number of the most recent notices. The widget has just two options - the first (repeated from the main Settings » Notices page) the number of notices to show, and the second, a title for the widget.
  • Use this <?php put_ticker( [true | false] ); ?> in your themeŐs template files. Where true or false determines if the ticker should be hidden when there are no notices to scroll. For example, <?php put_ticker(false); ?> only shows the ticker when there are notices to scroll, whereas <?php put_ticker(true); ?> always shows the ticker - even an empty one.
  • There is a small CSS document (notice.css) in the plug-in folder to help style your notices ticker. The three styles defined are:
  • .ticker - style for the text used in the notices.
  • .ticker img - style for images (use <img src=... /> in the notice text) in the notices. The example lines images up with the bottom of the notice text.
  • .ticker-div - style for the ticker container.
