    I run http://www.davidscommonsense.com I want to put a live headline newsticker on my site that I can update however often I want kinda like you would see on fox news. How do I do this? I couldn’t get wp-marquee to work and i haven’t seen any other way to do it.

    No one have anything?

    I did it by using the <marquee> tag, and writing a loop in it.

    I figured out how to make this work in 2.1:
    First of all, there’s the loading bits, starting at line 212. Comment out everything from
    // Just some boring admin stuff
    // This is the most important bit of the whole plug-in. This actually is the marquee!
    Just below the “boring” line, put this:

    function wpmarqueewp_adminmenu()
    	add_options_page('WP-Marquee Options', 'WP-Marquee', 9, basename(__FILE__),'wpmarqueewp_options_page');

    On line 82 there’s this bit:
    Most Current Stable Version = followed by some “required” business. Whack that out (all the way to the end of line 82).

    It also bugged me that there are single quotes in the body of the plugin options code which confused my code editor. I changed them to &rsquo; and &quot; as appropriate.

    It’s not perfect, but it does work. Mostly.

    If you like, we have just packaged KB Advanced RSS widget with onlinetools.org’s DOMnews javascript scroller. Here it is: http://pixline.net/wordpress-plugins/accessible-rss-news-ticker-widget/

    Hope it helps 🙂
