Nice and Easy to Implement News Scrolling Tickers

Posted · Category: License Free, Menu

Would you like a scrolling ticker for your site? First of all look at Newsticker created by Bartelme. Since many web developers already use the Prototype JavaScript Framework, and he also wanted to use Scriptaculous for some nice animations for Newsticker. It transforms any given unordered list into a News Ticker. The news fade in and out and you can click on “x” to close it.


Gian Carlo Mingati has created a jQuery News Ticker called liScroll which is very easy to use. It transforms any given unordered list into a scrolling News Ticker automatically as well. If you want your list to scroll faster or slower than the default value, modify the travelocity param. The scrolling automatically pauses when you mouse over it. If you would like to pull your news items from a xml file, You should check out his xml-based newsticker with fade in and out effect and xml-based newsticker scrolling effect as well.


Matt Berseth has created a CNN Style Scrolling Ticker with the Marquee Toolkit Control. It supports both left-to-right and right-to-left scrolling directions. You can easily apply a CSS class to the item when it is moused over. And also it support dynamically repopulating the marquee after it has finished scrolling.

Advanced CSS Menu from WebDesignerWall

Posted · Category: License Free, Menu

Nick La from WebDesignerWall shows us how to slice up the menu design (step by step) and put them together with CSS. Most of you probably know how to code a horizontal or vertical CSS list menu. Now let’s take it to the next level — code an advanced list menu utilizing the CSS position property. You can view the working example here.

Note: there is an IE6 bug where the <span> hover effect doesn’t display properly. To fix that, you can use Javascript to specify the <span> to display block on mouseover.

Sexy Sliding Javascript Menu With Mootools

Posted · Category: License Free, Menu

When trying to conceive ways in which space could be saved on a web page Andy Sellick decided a sliding menu would work well as shown in the images below. He decided to use mootools due to the smoothness of their effects, however, this could just as easily be developed in script.aculo.us or other JavaScript libraries.


You can easily customise the look of the sliding menu by CSS. However there may be some CSS issues in Safari but as yet he haven’t had the time to fully test and fix potential bugs. The next pitfall to note is the lack of degradability with JavaScript turned off, however, this will be fixed very soon.

Requirements: Javascript Enabled and Mootools Framework

Smooth and Clean FastFind Menu JQuery Plugin

Posted · Category: BSD License, Menu

FastFind Menu Script is a javascript menu created by ActiveSpotLight under the BSD License. It pulls a content feed as data to populate the menu, this can be static or dynamic. The version they use internally uses JSON/XML as data feeds. This script allows for nested menus, based on dynamic Ajax responses. The menu can also be dragged/dropped by using the jQuery Interface Library. I really like the menu because it is very clean and smooth. It is very extremely useful for any web applications that has no space to place a menu.

FastFind Menu Script is still under development and has been tested in FF1.5-2, IE 6-7, Opera 9, and Safari. The current build has the following issues in Safari: Arrows do not appear to show in-menu versus external links, as appear in the other browsers.
