Flashing or Blinking Text in Announcement Bar

Solved Flashing or Blinking Text in Announcement Bar

Post by LadyFaire on Thu Nov 06, 2014 8:06 am

Is there a way to make the announcement FLASH or blink?  And, is there any way to make the text larger than 24?  I really need a way to get my members to really SEE the announcements - we've found you can put just about anything up there, and no one notices.  I would like to make it impossible to NOT see the message, if possible.

I kind of inherited the forum when the previous admin died, and I'm floundering around with not much idea of what I'm doing.


Thanks for the help.

Sorry to hear about the loss.

You can increase the size with
Code:
<font size=#>Text</font>

Thank you - I wasn't sure I could use html tags in the announcements.  Do they work for blinking text, too?

Use the following  BBcode(s) in your announcement message .



Code:
[blink]{ text you want to blink here w/o brackets}[/blink]


Code:
[size=?] { your text you want increased here } [/size]
 add size (ie. 24 ect) in place of the ?

It can go into the Annoucements. So can BBCode and JavaScript.

I didn't mention
Code:
[blink] or <blink>
Because I heard a lot of browsers don't support it.

I should have tested this prior to replying as it doesn't seem to be working  . I'm quite certain at one time i use the codes. However you must use <> </>

Yeah, it doesn't work in IE or Firefox.  Ah well.  I'll think of something, I suppose.

Say!  Do animated gifs work in the announcements?  I know that you can insert pictures...
