Simple news ticker with multiple input possiblities
A simple ticker plugin for wordpress. It supports multiple tickers. You can define an update interval in minutes in which the client updates it's message list from the server. This update request includes new messages, which have been posted until the last update. You can also specify the amount of messages that the client fades through and the time each message stays on the screen. Each message is stored with an creation timestamp. You can tell the ticker only to show messages not older than a defined number of minutes. If there are no messages to display, then the ticker turns itself invisible.
Every ticker has it's own RSS Feed, which can be received by either given it's ID or name.
If you want to use the SimpleTicker data from an other application such as an iPhone or Android App, you can get all ticker data and messages via an JSON based API. It is also possible to add and delete messages with the JSON API. Your application will need a password for each ticker, if it want's to add or delete messages.
