The sidebar is fully customizable and can intergrate seamlessly into your site. Font, font color, font size, font weight, background color, mouse-over behaviour and link target can be set to your liking.
Internet Explorer users can click here to point-and-click through the customization process.
To include the ticker in your site point an iframe at http://www.religionnewsblog.com/include/sidebar.html – the ticker’s location.
Your customization information is simple tagged on to the URL. For example; to specify that the font Arial should be used the above URL would read http://www.religionnewsblog.com/include/sidebar.html?ff=Arial. Variables are seperated by a & sign. Example: http://www.religionnewsblog.com/include/sidebar.html?ff=Arial&fc=yellow.
