Vertical, looping news ticker?
# August 27, 2009 at 5:27 am
I can’t figure how to create a vertical, looping news ticker with Malsup’s cycle.
The first problem is that I need to show all (x) elements at a time, not just one. Removing the first and appending it at the bottom is fine but how do I make it keep on scrolling up, smoothly?
I’m a bit lost, would like some good directions.
Thanks!# August 27, 2009 at 5:00 pm
Sorry, I should have expressed myself more clearly. What I need is ideas to how this could be solved. I think I should be able to code most of it myself once I get the idea.
Let’s take a simple unordered list as example. It needs to:
– Continuously scroll li-elements up
– When a li is scrolled out of view it should be moved to the bottom e.g. save .html() to a var and append it.
.. and nothing else really? Only difference from most sliders is that it needs to show several elements at a time – not just one.# August 27, 2009 at 5:08 pm

have you looked at using jquery for this? I know of no script that does this kind of thing, but jquery might handle it. Most people in web design would tell you not to use a scroller because it annoys visitors. You might do better with a scroller that is user controlled.
