Block Code - Scrolling Gas Prices
« on: February 23, 2006, 08:51:43 AM »
I am wondering if somebody can help me out with creating a new block code.

I would like to add a little block that has scrolling information for our local area.  I believe I would be able to enter the details but the actual code itself is what I would like some help with.

I guess I would want it to look like the arcade champions scrolling block.  At the top, it would have the image I have included of the gas pump with text saying "Western Slope Gas Prices".  Then the information that would scroll would have the date, location, and price of gas.  I would like to enter multiple locations and stuff so where the text gets entered would have to be pretty easy.

Does anybody have any ideas about this?

This is what I have so far.  It's a pausing scroller.  For some reason, the background color doesn't change to the themes color but remains white.

Code: [Select]
<script type="text/javascript">

//set below to '' if you don't wish to use a background image
var scrollerbackground='scrollerback.gif'

Here is my complete code now.

Create an HTML block and then change it to a javascript/html box.

In order to change it to suit what you need, you will need to change this:
Code: [Select]
//configure the below variable to change the contents of the scroller
var messages=new Array()
messages[0]="<font face='Tahoma'><a href='http://www.westernslopeanglers.com/index.php/topic,1636.new.html#new'>Loco - 29 Road and Patterson - $2.24 per gallon</a></font>"
messages[1]="<font face='Arial'><a href='http://www.westernslopeanglers.com/index.php/topic,1636.new.html#new'>Sinclair - 25 1/2 Road and Patterson - $2.15 per gallon</a></font>"
messages[2]="<font face='Arial'><a href='http://www.westernslopeanglers.com/index.php/topic,1636.new.html#new'>Care to share gas prices?  Click to add</a></font>"
messages[3]="<font face='Arial'><a href='http://www.westernslopeanglers.com/index.php/topic,1636.new.html#new'>What did you pay for gas?  Click to add</a></font>"
messages[4]="<font face='Arial'><a href='http://www.westernslopeanglers.com/index.php/topic,1636.new.html#new'>How much is gas around you?  Click to add</a></font>"
messages[5]="<font face='Arial'><a href='http://www.westernslopeanglers.com/index.php/topic,1636.new.html#new'>Found Cheap Gas?  Click Here</a></font>"

Change the link and make sure you keep the ' in front and behind it and then after the > you can add your text.  These are clickable links so you can direct them to go anywhere in your site or elsewhere.
Code: [Select]
messages[0]="<font face='Tahoma'><a href='http://www.your link.com'>Your text here</a></font>"
If you want to add more links, then just copy and paste this code below and change the number.
Code: [Select]
messages[0]="<font face='Tahoma'><a href='http://www.your link.com'>Your text here</a></font>"
Code: [Select]
messages[2]="<font face='Tahoma'><a href='http://www.your link.com'>Your text here</a></font>"
Code: [Select]
messages[423]="<font face='Tahoma'><a href='http://www.your link.com'>Your text here</a></font>"
You can view the demo here.
It's on the right side bottom block.
