Use Ticker

To use the ticker on your wordpress pages or articles copy the following text into the page. After that replace #id# with the id of your ticker.

[simpleticker id=#id#]

Example for ticker 1 (with id 1): [simpleticker id=1]

RSS Feed

You will receive the content of the RSS Feed for a specific ticker when you call SimpleTicker.php from your plugin folder (URL) and append '?action=rssFeed&id=1'. Instead of id=1 you can use name=Tickername.


All APIs are handled with GET paramters. The 'action' parameter specifys which function you want to call.


Instead of the using the id parameter with the tickers ID, you can use the name parameter with it's name. The JSON API provides the following functionalities:

  • jsonGetTickerList - Returns a full list of all available tickers containing the tickers id and name.
  • jsonGetTickerMessages - Returns a list with the last 50 messages of a ticker. You have to specify the ticker by giving it's ID in the parameter 'id'. The list contains the message id, the message itself and the createdOn timestamp.
  • jsonManageTicker - You need a password to call the action. All further parameters are given in a BASE64 encoded encrypted JSON string provided as GET parameter named 'data'. You have to set the 'id' parameter as above to define a ticker. The JSON string contains an action attribute which can either be 'addMessage' or 'removeMessage'. The 'addMessage' actions takes an additional 'message' attribute containing the new message and the 'removeMessage' action takes an 'id' attribute.
