A nice vertical scrolling news ticker plugin using jQuery

Are you looking for Facebook style vertical scrolling news ticker application which shows updates from friends? It creates a smooth vertical scrolling effect which consequently attracts visitors to any news update because of its animation effect. This is a tutorial, which is very suitable for beginers. Even people having less knowledge in jQuery / Javascript can also implement this into their website.

Almost all modern web browsers supports this plugin. Hence you won’t have to worry about compatibility.

The tutorial contains one one html file and one js files including  jQuery plugin.

– index.htm
– newsticker.js (Small javascript file to create the news ticker)


Lets include all those required Javascript and CSS files.

<script src="js/jquery-1.4.4.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<link href="css/newsticker.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<script src="js/newsticker.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

<div id="newsticker">
Now each individual news to be placed inside a DIV element having class='news'

<div style="top: 101px;" class="news">
          <div class="history">
          <div class="circle-outer"><div><span>March 29, 2012</span></div>
          <div class="description"><h1>

    How can I cause the script to pause at the very beginning? Right when the page loads the first news item is swiped off the screen. It would be fantastic to have the 2 second pause right when the page loads.

    A great news ticker if you only have one line of text for each item but it jumps if an item consists of 2 lines…
