Finding the Right Code
- Is your website graphics-intensive or text-based? A simple one-line ticker will fit better into the latter, but a complex NASDAQ-style widget might be better for the splashy pictures.
If you're not sure what code to get, the best way to decide is to find an example of one you like and either view the source code or contact the site administrator and ask them which one they used. Look for reviews and comments by people who have used them in the past, and that will give you the basis of an informed decision.
On or Off the Page
Inserting Into HTML
Once the .js code is set and configured (following the developer's directions) the next step is to insert the ticker into the place in the HTML where you want it to show. There are a variety of ways to do this - again, the script developer will most likely have very clear instructions as to how to insert the code into your page.
