JavaScript must be enabled for the RSS Ticker Widget to work.

Would you like to add auto-updating content to your web site? Then you should be interested in RSS! An RSS feed or channel is an XML file that contains a group of items. Each item normally represents an article, blog entry, etc., and consists of a title, brief description, and a link to the full article. Whenever the site changes it updates the RSS feed with information for the most recent articles. Recently, RSS has become very popular with most blogs offering feeds, as well as prominent web sites like CNN, Yahoo!, The New York Times, and NPR, to name a few.

Normally, to add the contents of an RSS feed to your site, you would need to know a web scripting language like PHP or PERL, but with the RSS Ticker Widget all you need to do is upload a few files and paste some html code on your page and you'll have an auto-updating source of content! Not only that, but the ticker is completely customizable. You can set the title, border style, border color, the color of the title, and the color of the article titles. The backgrounds can also be set to any color or pattern you choose. Additionally, you can either set the ticker widget to a specific width or have it auto size to fit in the window. It's all up to you!

The RSS Ticker Widget uses the MagpieRSS library to support RSS 0.9 though 1.0, 2.0 and Atom feeds. Only the first ten items of a feed will be displayed.

The RSS Ticker Widget costs US$35 and requires a server that has PHP 4 or greater with xml support installed. After PayPal confirms the payment, you will be emailed a zip archive that includes the RSS Ticker Widget and all the information you will need to set it up on your server.
