Create A Vertical Scrolling News Ticker With jQuery and jCarousel Lite
News Ticker is a fantastic way to present headlines or minor updates to your readers. The smooth scrolling effect will attract your readers and generate more clicks to your site. I am writing this tutorial as there are readers ask about this after they read my tutorial about content slider.
There are a lot of great tutorials discussing on how to implement news ticker, however most of the tutorials that i found are not really suitable for a beginner. So, i decided to use jQuery and its plugin jCarousel Lite to create a simple yet powerful news ticker.
Why i choose jCarousel Lite? it is because jCarousel Lite is a tiny but powerful plugin. Furthermore, you can easily tweak/configure it to achieve different effects. News ticker is just a sample application for this plugin.
