Ok, I figured out on accident that I can put clickable links in my marquee and would like to twink it a bit. Hope these are easy....

A. A way to space apart my news bites without the periods.
B. Make the link open in a new window.
or
C. Make it open in the popup.

I have this in my Page Style:Custom HTML

<marquee width=100% scrollamount=" 5 " font-size="10pt">* Extreme Explores have a new web address: ExtremeExplorers.guildportal.com *........................* Guild News....Website Rankings: (<a href="http://www.guildportal.com/ContentControls/Support/InfoSectionViewer.aspx?GuildID=99994&GuildInfoSectionID=228208">Click Here</a>)</a></marquee>

Thanks

Extreme Explorers

Hiya Gax!
  • Replace the periods with "<span style="margin-left:100px;"></span>"

  • Link opens a new window: <a target="_blank" href="URL">Click Here</a>

  • Link opens a popup: <a rel="facebox" href="URL">Click Here</a>
I hope that answers your questions

I get the loading graphic for the popup window but, then it reverts to a whole window.

<marquee width=100% scrollamount=" 5 " font-size="10pt"> Extreme Explores have a new web address: ExtremeExplorers.guildportal.com <span style="margin-left:100px;"></span>Guild News: Website Rankings: (<a rel="facebox" href="http://www.guildportal.com/ContentControls/Support/InfoSectionViewer.aspx?GuildID=99994&GuildInfoSectionID=228208">Click Here</a>)<span style="margin-left:100px;"></span> Powers1ave Promoted to Tessararius</a></marquee>



Thanks again Mottie!

Sorry, I can't see what's inside your info section, but if you click anywhere outside the popup window, it closes it. Could that be what's going on?

There is a post on how to style and use this popup window here, if you want to learn more about it.

Oh, and one more thing... the link in your sig takes people to a non-public page.

Nope, it is opening up in the same IE window after displaying a brief loading graphic box, with the graphic showing as broken.

I will check out popup window thread, thanks

Fixed the sig, thanks.
