Live Mobile Phone News Ticker


The Live Mobile Phone News Ticker uses RSS feeds from a variety of sources to offer an embeddable stream of the latest cell phone news – as it happens – directly to your site.

The feed is fetched for every view, so users are guaranteed the latest mobile news and information. Clicking on a news headline will take users directly to the relevant article, at the respective site.

A mouse hover over a headline shows a snippet of each post, and the plug-in automatically customizes the styling and font to remain in keeping with your site.

The Live Mobile Phone News Ticker displays feeds in a random order, enabling a mix of news from numerous sources, and the plug-in width adjustable to fit in a range of site sidebars.

The Ticker is completely customizable, with the WP Admin able to:

  • select the number of sites to stream news
  • select the number of headlines visible
  • change the title text
  • change background and text colour
  • adjust scroll speed and interval
  • select whether links opened in a new window/tab.
  • whether links are ‘follow’ or not.
