WP-Headlineanimator generates an animated GIF File to be displayed in signatures or wherever you like to advertise for your Blog.
The configuration takes place in the administrative backend on Options -> WP-HeadlineAnimator. The options are kept to a minimum to keep it simple and intuitive. Basic options here:
Background image: This text field requires the path to your HeadlineAnimator Background picture relative to your WordPress installation. If the picture is not accessible, the label is shown in red
Font file: This text field requires the absolute path to a font file (ttf) on your server. It is used to write text on the Background image. If the fomt file is not accessible, the label is shown in red
Target: This is the path where your image should be written to; relative to your WordPress Installation
Text on Picture: Text entered here is shown on the Animator.
Text Color: Enter a color here in Hex format (#ffffff is white). This color will be used for the text on the picture.
Show date on animator: If you want your headlines to be prefixed with a date, check this box.
Date format: This is direct access to the PHP date() function used to display the date prefix of your headlines.
If you got things right, "HTML Code for your Animator" is shown including your animator.
