Reviews Ticker, jQuery and osCommerce

By | December 8, 2010

Spent a few moments looking around the net this morning for an easy to install “News Ticker” coded using jQuery. Ended up at the site of Alex Francois who has put together a nice little script that does exactyl what is needed.

Here is what I wanted to achieve which is a ticker inside the black area underneath some other info (obviously the info in the image is “placeholder” text, so just ignore that);

Step 1 was to follow the instructions as laid out by Alex.

Step 2 was to code up 2 lines of osCommerce standardised code to grab the reviewers name and the first few words of the review text, then link it to the relevant product;

Step 3 was to refresh the page and see it in action;

Quite nice, I think.

    Have you been reading my mind…?

    I’ve been thinking about one in the header for “latest news”

    Another good idea from you
