Admin link:

  • Administration → Settings → Marquee Style RSS News Ticker

Admin form details:

Scroll amount:

  • Scroll amount, together with Scroll delay, sets the speed of the scrolling. Marquee moves the content by displaying the content, then delaying for some short period of time, then displaying the content again in a new position. Scroll amount sets the size in pixels of each jump. A higher value for Scroll amount makes the marquee scroll faster.

Scroll delay:

  • Scroll delay, together with Scroll amount , sets the speed of the scrolling. Marquee moves the content by displaying the content, then delaying for some short period of time, then displaying the content again in a new position. Scroll delay sets the amount of delay in milliseconds (a millisecond is 1/1000th of a second).

Scroll direction:

  • Direction in which the feed scrolls. Options: (left/right).

News Items, articles or posts to display from feed:

  • Number of titles from each feed to display, default is 10. Some feeds only show 10 items in feed, so if you enter 20 and get only 10, this is why. It will display the same number of news ticker titles per feed if you have multiple feeds as well, so if you have 5 feeds, it will display 10 items per feed.

Scroll style:

  • Css style for the scroller.
  • Note: Only works for the splitter characters and feed titles, the links are controlled by your WordPress Theme, however you can change that in your theme CSS file if you so desire or create one (See above – adding CSS file to theme).

Splitter:

  • Designates the character(s) you wish to use between the post titles in the scroll. The default is -//-.

Rss feed 1 Title:

  • Enter the RSS feed Title you wish to be displayed along with your feed like AP News. It automatically will add RSS Live Feed to the end of the title so there is no need to add this to your title. This field is used in the widget.

Rss feed 1 URL:

  • Enter the RSS feed URL. This field is used in the widget

Rss feed 2 Title:

  • Option to enter another rss feed title (total amount you can add 5 is rss feed but contact us and we can add more!).

Rss feed 2 URL:
