Hello. I'm looking for a a component/module/extension for our Joomla-based website (v. 1.0.15) where we can easily display announcements in the event that we have cancelations due to severe weather (especially during the winter months). I have the StopPress module installed right now, but it drops a box down on top of our home page. I'm looking for something a bit more simple...maybe in the form of scrolling text at the top or bottom of our home page that we could easily turn on and off at a moment's notice. Any ideas/suggestions out there that I should consider looking at?

I found an easy way to make a marquee. First create a html page on your server and name it marquee.html. In the code view use this for the marquee-- <marquee>type in your message here</marquee>
Now create a wrapper and place the location of the marquee html page in the url field.
You may have to make some adjustments to get it to look like you want but it works. You can also place a graphic in the marquee tag <marquee><img>image location</img></marquee>
Here are two examples of this

good luck!

If you are still interested, I'll try to explain.
First: you need a WRAPPER MODULE.
Second: make one html document in which you type a <marquee> some text </marque>. You can give him a name marquee.html. In that document you can make what ever you want (tables, background colors, formatted text, pictures,...). After that save it on your server (somewhere on your host, for en example you can make one folder and named it documents and save it in him.
If you want a vertical scrolling text, just type <marquee behavior="scroll" direction="up"> some text</marquee> and your text will scroll from down to up.
After that you must to publish wrapper module and in it you must set up url of your document marquee.html. Besides there is some parameters needed to adjust (like width, height,...). At the end just set up position of wrapper module and enjoy.
I hope I was helpful.
