There are many posts already out there in which is described how to make a news ticker with jquery. In this post i would like to share a really easy implementation of a possible solution. You only need to add a content query webpart and configure it. Afterwords you insert jquery into the site and it is working.
Step 1: Add a Content Query Webpart
Configure it for your needs. In my example i configured the query to use only my news list and where the display date is greater than today.
The presentation i configured like this: Display only 3 items. Formatting with title and background
I’d like to mention, that you can choose different styles for the display of the items. In this post it is described how to define your own style.
And the normal output is now like this:
It display 3 news from 4.
Step 2: Add Jquery to your site
Now open SharePoint Designer and open the page in advanced mode. In the placeholder PlaceHolderAdditionalPageHead insert the following scripts and styles:
Afterwords it slides the newsticker. Great thing and i wanna say thanks to this post.
This is really cool.
