You can add RSS or static text. The text will scroll from right to left.
It gives you the ability to customize your scrolling text in various ways.

Creating a Ticker widget

Click on the Ticker widget within your widget gallery to add it, or click this link to quickly create a new one and fill in the widget details as follows:

  1. A Name is required for the widget and an optional Description for it.
  2. Set the Default Duration so that the widget will appear in a playlist.
  3. Choose the Speed (Edge to edge duration in seconds. Larger is slower) of your scrolling text.
  4. Set the Styling of your text by clicking on the various available options.
  5. Type in the Text to show what you want to be displayed. You can add multiple entries by clicking Add Feed.
  6. You can set the Play From/Play Until parameters. In other words, you can select the expiration date, which means that you can choose the exact date and time that this widget will play in your playlist. We recommend selecting the “Always” and “Forever” settings for the widget to never expire.
