Wanted one of these for a while for my forums, so thanks :D

Just a few questions

How can I change the font size, want it bigger than it is right now.

How can I change the max charater length, can't put much in before it won't let you add any more writing.

Thanks

Is it easy to make the ticker clickable, i.e. hyperlink to the topic?

Great idea ;)

thanks all , for your comments and help...
Thanks olalavui, I`ll add that when I update this mod, I`ll also add a font size option... and a more active news.

(Ive made a BBC News ticker for my site, that picks up feeds from BBC News website and they update automatically, so Im integrating a live news feed as well)

For font size you can do this for each in overall header prosilver.
Just add the in blue, use your own size of course.


<div class="navbar">
<div class="inner"><span class="corners-top"><span></span></span>
<marquee behavior="scroll" direction="left" width="100%" scrolldelay="1" scrollamount="3" onmouseout="this.start()" onmouseover="this.stop()">
<font color="#{FORUM_COLOR}"><FONT SIZE=3>{NEWS_FORUM}&nbsp;</font></font>
<font color="#{WORLD_COLOR}">{NEWS_WORLD}&nbsp;</font>
<font color="#{SPORT_COLOR}">{NEWS_SPORT}</font>
</marquee>
<span class="corners-bottom"><span></span></span></div>
</div>
