Do you want it to just words? If so,, you can use the code I gave you in your other post.

Code:
<marquee behavior="slide" direction="left">Your slide-in text goes here</marquee>

you can put it in the homepage description**


**ACP > Display > Homepage > Generalities > Homepage massage

Thanks for your help Very Happy but how do I make it say the users name that is viewing it? Also how can I make it appear in like a box? I just tried it and well it was plain text that after scrolling it just stayed there and sat on the left instead of keep scrolling. What I really want is it to say welcome *then the persons username who is viewing* to *My forums name* then our newest member is *newest members name* ect ect

I don't know what kind of "box" you want. I am trying to search for codes that fit your criteria and it's proving difficult.

You can try this code and change some things, like the color codes and things.

Code:
<div align="center"><FONT
color="#ffffff" size="+1"><MARQUEE bgcolor="#000080"
direction="right" loop="20" width="75%"><STRONG>This
is cool!</STRONG></MARQUEE></FONT></DIV>

You may need to use the USERNAME tag and wrap it in {}. Try that. Wink

Thanks very much! I am sorry to keep asking questions lol It worked well but how do I get it to have a different text line each time? I tried repeating the code again underneath it but it didn't work. Like I mentioned in my above post I want it to have a pattern...any ideas?

Code:

<div align="center">
<FONT color="#ffffff" size="+1">
<MARQUEE bgcolor="#000080" direction="right" loop="20" width="75%">
<STRONG>
<span style="font-weight:bold; font-size:15px; margin-right:5px;">Line 1</span>
<span style="font-weight:bold; font-size:15px; margin-right:5px;">Line 2</span>
<span style="font-weight:bold; font-size:15px; margin-right:5px;">Line 3</span>
<span style="font-weight:bold; font-size:15px; margin-right:5px;">Line 4</span>
<span style="font-weight:bold; font-size:15px; margin-right:5px;">Line 5</span>
</STRONG>
</MARQUEE>
</FONT>
</DIV>
this will leave some space between two lines but in the same "box"
