Marquees how to
Could anyone that has already done this give me a quick run through on how to do it, please?
Thank you so much.
since you do not know much about coding – I do not recommend the example you sent.
Marquees are a very old, basic HTML feature and can easily be embedded just with this simple piece of code:
<marquee> One or more lines or text message or image </marquee>
You need to add it onto the custom HTML section.
You also can add a div class or other attributes to make it move slower or faster.
Good luck with this and let me know if you have trouble!
Thank you so much for your help.
I can manage to do that. But what I would like is to use the marquee tag in a specific part of the gridder, so I tried to use the tag on the text area, but then it won't move.
How can I use the marquee on a specific row of the gridder?
Thank you so much for your time and help.
exactly. Marquees don't work in the Gridder yet. We will implement them in the future.
If you embedd them in the custom HTML are you can only show them on specific pages with custom CSS and display: block for that specific page.
Let me know when you face problems!
Hi Marius! could you explain more this process? it would be very helpful
HIn @strk ,
which process? How to embedd a marquee in the Gridder OR the Custom HTML?
What do you want to achieve?
Hi @mariusjopen, thanks for such a quick reply
I was wondering how do I place a marquee on a specific page. I have placed your code onto the custom HTML section and the marquee appears on the main page of my site.
Have a look here:
I hoped that helped. If you have more questions – let me know!
@mariusjopen Hi Marius, thanks for the quick reply
I already did this before asking here but it didn't work.
Do I need to place this code also onto the Custom <head> content?
When I do this the marquee appears in the home page of my site but I just want the marquee to be in a specific page
Thank you and sorry to bother again!
please don't be sorry. I am here to help!
It is weird, because it works on our studio website:
Best is if you write an email to email@example.com and include your username, password and a link to this conversation.
I also tried to embedd the marquee in the gridder, and just nothing just shows up. Any idea why that could be?
Ok, digging around in html I found that the text in marquee just doesn't have any font styling applied for some reason and was invisible, so have to add that and it should work.
I was trying the same thing. I made it work with Text, but images won’t move. They are moving when I’m putting the code in the HTML Head, but no inside the grid. Text will work finde inside the grid.
Images just stand there and do nothing :).
Do you have any ideas? Any tipps?
It would also be fine if I can use the classic html marquee – but I still wonder how I can change the fontsize and fontstyle here?
Thanks in advance.
sure! You can use a classic marquee as well.
You can add it into the CUSTOM HTML area.
Also have a look with the inspector tool which classes get added as paragraph styles.
I think they are called _h1 and so on…
You can use the same classes to add the same style to an element which you use in the CUSTOM HTML area.
I hope that gave you a direction :D
