Script For Homepage Message?

Post by CreepyPastaDB on May 10th 2013, 5:28 pm

Sorry if I put this in the wrong category, I wasn't sure whether to put it here or in Design & Appearance. Anyway so on the homepage message I've seen forum's where the message scrolls up from the bottom of the border, stays in place for a few seconds so you can read it, then it scrolls up to the top. Then a new message scrolls up and the cycle continues like that. Does anyone know how to do this?

Are you exactly referring to the announcements?

No, the homepage message in the AP. It's like a border similar to a description with text in it on the homepage.

You can add simple effects with the
Code:
[updown]
BBCode and with additional JavaScript timeout functions, yes.

So just type
Code:
[updown][/updown]
For each message?

Well, I guess a <marquee> tag would do the job.

I have no idea how you want this to look like, would be great if you provided a source.

I'm afraid I can't find one as the site I saw it on closed down, but I'll try that code.

EDIT: It worked but all of the messages are displayed at once. http://cpdb.forummotions.com/

So you want to have it like that with each message sliding in one after another with a few seconds delay in between?

You could try inserting this into the homepage message field:

Code:
<marquee style="display: none;" direction="up">Your text goes here.</marquee>
<marquee style="display: none;" direction="up">More text here.</marquee>
<marquee style="display: none;" direction="up">Last text here.</marquee>
<script type="text/javascript">
   function marq(){
      var marquee = document.getElementsByTagName("marquee");
      for(var i = 0; i < marquee.length; i++){
         if(i == 0) {
            marquee[0].style.display = "block"; hidemarq();
         } if(i == 1) {
            marquee[1].style.display = "block"; hidemarq();
         } if(i == 2) {
            marquee[2].style.display = "block"; hidemarq();
      } }
      function hidemarq(){
         setTimeout(function marquee(){
            marquee[i].style.display = "none";
         },10000);
   }
marq();
</script>
