Headline Ticker

Religion News Blog offers you 3 free powerful ways to syndicate our news, providing your site with fresh new ‘sticky’ content: the headline ticker, RSS news feed, and a headline sidebar.

You may use our news ticker on your web site (it cycles through up to 10 recent headlines highlighting notable stories).

The ticker 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.

Point-and-click Customization

Internet Explorer users can click here to point-and-click through the customization process.

Manual Customization

To include the ticker in your site point an iframe at https://www.religionnewsblog.com/include/ticker.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 https://www.religionnewsblog.com/include/ticker.html?ff=Arial. Variables are seperated by a & sign. Example: https://www.religionnewsblog.com/include/ticker.html?ff=Arial&fc=yellow.
