Introduction

Social Web, Social Display

KcRssScroller is a news-ticker style RSS scroller module that scrolls the text horizontally through an RSS feed. It is easy to customize and style just the way you want it.

  • Get this

** Features **

  • Horizontal scrolling
  • Control the number of feed items
  • Change the item separator character
  • Scrolling speed adjustment
  • Display the title only or the title AND description
  • Truncate the description
  • Style it easily with a custom CSS class

** Custom Styling **
The pretext div container has a class name of "pretext", while the feed items themselves uses the div class "content". So to create a custom CSS styling for it you can use hierarchical CSS.


I have been trying to find a good, simple RSS scroller for my site for the past two days & it seems the extensions directory is full of non-functioning, over complicated or featureless tat. I gave this a try at the 11th hour & to my utter amazement, was not only just what I had been looking for, it needed almost no configuring, it just worked! Without a doubt the best of it's class anywhere out there! Well done Knightlycomputing developers - impressive stuff.


I don't normally write reviews but since this one didn't have any I wanted to say that this is a perfect add on. I tried out a couple other RSS readers first and this one worked the best. It does exactly what it says and I found it easy to customize the colours and look to what I needed.



Great job!
