Auto Scrolling Text Help

Hi Guys

Just producing a site at the moment for a Hair Extention salon.

This is the working proof home page for which I have some changes to do before continuing with the rest of the site.

The main request is to remove the opening times and replace this with customer feedback.

The client would like this feedback text to automatically scroll up and then the next message appear and so on in a continuing loop.

Anyone any ideas of an action or how to do this. Spoken with Freeway tech support, they didn’t have any suggestions.

Thanks
Mike

The NewsCycle function can do a fading transition, it was pretty much made for this sort of content. Nothing I know of that does a scrolling transition, although that wouldn’t be too very hard to write long-hand and paste into Protaculous.

Hi Walter
Freeway support said you would have any answer, how do I implement this.

Download the Action (and read the basic instructions) here: NewsCycle - ActionsForge

Try this out on a separate page, make sure that it does what you need before you go through trying to integrate it with the rest of your site.

Hi Walter

Could do with the text moving up as one, where the new text pushes the old up etc.

I wouldn’t have a clue about writing code for something like this for what is a budget site.

You could do that precisely with a Carousel, set to vertical scroll and auto-glide, with no external controls. Each testimonial would be a separate carousel pane, so you would be able to control the layout within that element very precisely. All of them would have to be the same dimensions for this to work, though.

Carousel is documented at ActionsForge, and there’s roughly 10,000 messages on this mailing list about it, too.

Hi Walter

Yes used Carousel before - does it work with HTML content?

Sure, it works with any HTML layered object you can create in Freeway. You can combine a number of HTML elements together to make a single pane, too. Draw a base element (HTML box) then, while that element is still selected (handles showing) choose another drawing tool – HTML or Graphic – and draw directly over the first box. This nests the two elements so that you have a group. Click once on the bottom HTML box and draw another element over the first. You can keep doing this as your design requires. If you apply the Carousel or Carousel Pane Action to the lower-most HTML box, then all of the child elements you drew will come along for the ride when the Action does its thing.
