SEE THE CSS CATEGORY FOR TEXT BASICS

A Web Studio RSS feed reader for websites with auto (ticker) text scroll
This add on will convert RSS feeds from a link into HTML for a website
The text scroll can be the size you like to fit it onto your page and you can limit the items shown
You can customize the colors with css on most feeds to match the look of your site

WHAT IS RSS
RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication or Rich Site Summary
You can enhance your website with a list of interesting items in a brief format
Your visitors can scan headlines and choose the items that interest them most.
It's a way to make your websites include more interesting information.
Most websites offer RSS feeds on just about any topic you can think of from news & weather to general information.

Most auto scrolling feeds work best without images

Not all feeds are the same some have images and some don't
When you use a auto scroll I find most work best with the images turned off

This feed for example works well with images. I set it to only get one item and it updates daily with a new astronomy image from NASA

Astronomy Picture of the Day

The default feed is transparent so you can either use your page background or add a web studio draw shape behind it

This feed works better without images,
is set up to have background colors and the speed is a little slower

Science News - United Press International

All the feeds will pause when the mouse is over them
You click on the links to see the full article and images

You can change the size of the HTML object limit the feed number and speed they display
