WP-feedTickerWordPress

17 September 2011

Following the great success of the WP-webTicker I have decided to extend its usability and release a similar plugin which caters for RSS feeds with many users looking to publish data from other sources maybe the corporate website or a blog this should help implementation.

Important: this plugin does not work as expected with jQuery 1.4.4 as there is a bug in relation to the animate feature. If you would like to upgrade to 1.6.2 you can uncomment the section which sets the jQuery version to be obtained from Google API otherwise choose another version of jQuery to run. (note that it is compatible with jQuery 1.4.2)

Please note that for the feed ticker to work there are still requirements when it comes to CSS styling as the ticker without any styling will fail to work. More information on that however can be found in the jQuery - webTicker page so as to avoid repeating the same things. A sample CSS download is also provided on this page.

To install the feed ticker simply copy the contents of the zip file into your plugins folder and enable your plugin from wordpress. This would enable you to use a shortcode of the following format

              [feedticker num="10" feed="http://jonmifsud.com/rss/" id="webticker", direction="1", speed="0.05"]

            

By default the feed is that of this website so it has to be changed to the feed that you would like to publish.  Since this is shortcode if you would like to make the ticker part of your template you have to use the following structure enclosed within php tags:

              do_shortcode('[feedticker num="10" feed="http://jonmifsud.com/rss/" id="webticker", direction="1", speed="0.05" ]')

Note: No example is provided on this page, since I have changed my platform from WordPress to Symphony-CMS. The effect created is similar to the one of the jQuery - webTicker so please refer to that. Styling of the ticker is up to the developer using CSS - however if required support would be provided.
