Accessible News Ticker (ANT)

Description

A news ticker widget, able to display latest posts as well as remote RSS feed. This widget is written in Unobtrusive Javascript, so this means that it WILL degrade gracefully if users don’t have javascript, allowing them as well as search engines to even index these links.

Based on the wonderful DOMNews 1.0 (by Chris Heilmann) and SimplePie RSS-parsing php class

Installation

IMPORTANT: This widget is tested on the default theme only, so it may require some hacks to suit your theme. If you need help please submit working markup and/or web location to see what the problem is, and I’ll make my best to fix it.

REALLY IMPORTANT: Make sure that the plugin creates a folder cache in your wp-content folder to cache RSS feeds, and that this folder is writeable (chmod 755 or chmod 777).

REALLY REALLY IMPORTANT: check your theme’s header.php and footer.php for presence of wp_head(); (in the section) and wp_footer(); (near ), otherwise this plugin can’t work. if you can’t find them, INSERT THEM!

  1. Place and activate like all the others WP plugins in the world.
  2. (Optional) Tweak .css file to suit your need.
  3. Enjoy! 🙂
