XMod Pro Module Kit - jQuery Vertical News Scroller: vTicker
As an example kit to show off the flexibility of XMod Pro templates when creating module items for DotNetNuke like a news ticker or slider, we have put together an example using our example data set and a jQuery script, vTicker - Vertical News Ticker from kasp3r.
Module Description: Intended to showcase article, text, paragraph and news info, this news ticker has options to help customize it for your needs including complete control of the style CSS, formatting, and content. Use it for links and text, but don't forget images and other types of content that are great to present in a scroller!
Uses: It can be used to show any type of data that you can setup in an unordered list, and can be connected with external data feeds (for instance external news article feeds, twitter feeds, facebook feeds, etc., OR use your own XMod Pro RSS Feed), or it can be used to show the newest articles and information from other DotNetNuke article or event, blog modules (such as the ZLDNN DNN Article or Ventrian or digArticle modules), or you can connect it to your own completely custom built XMod Pro article solution and external database records. Use this as a base code to create your own customized module or use it as a resource for tips and tricks for building your own XMod Pro solution!
