Hi all,

I want to put a BBC News RSS Feed onto my website. I have companyies that will do it such as click here but I want the feed to be vertical and not horizontal. An example is on the Times Website click here (at the top)

How is this done? does anyone know of any companies that would do this?

Cheers

The ticker on the Times page is horizontal.

Incidentally scrolling text is an accessibility no-no.

If you mean the same kind of BBC one on my website click here then just paste this into your site.

Just add the start and close tags to the snippet.

iframe height="13" marginwidth="0" width="629" scrolling="no" src="/nol/ukfs_news/hi/front_page/ticker.stm" frameborder="0" marginheight="0"></iframe

You need to acknowledge that the news feed is from the BBC. All that they require is for you to add the text "From BBC Sport".

Thanks PP. Always meant to get round to doing that but never did.

You did add the tags like I said didn't you?

I'll post the full snippet and hope it doesn't come out as a scroller!! Oh for a preview on here..

Sorted. Try this:

<iframe height="13" marginwidth="0" width="100%" scrolling="no" src="click here" frameborder="0" marginheight="0"></iframe>

iframe height="13" marginwidth="0" width="100%" scrolling="no" src="click here" frameborder="0" marginheight="0"></iframe
