How do I insert an auto-scroll???

P: 5
Hello all,

I am a novice at building websites and could use some help. I am in two bands and am building a website for one of them. I would like to insert an automatic scrolling of our bio in the center of one of our pages to start and scroll from the bottom to top just as credits do at the end of a movie. Perhaps 275 pixels wide X 275 pixels tall. I know nothing about code. I use adobe Photoshop and Frontpage for ALL of my editing and publishing. Could someone please help and/or direct me where I can find more info about???? Thanx!



Sincerely,

Wolfbrutha

Hey there, Wolfbrutha and welcome to the forums!

This is the PHP forum, where we discuss and help with PHP related problems. Your problem, however, is not PHP but HTML. We have a forum for that too.

While you're here, and there's no Mods to move your question, I'll give you a hand.

Here's something which will show you how to get a scroll bar (you set the height of an element and set 'overflow: auto'.

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <div style="height: 100px; width: 200px; overflow: auto;">
  2. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit. Sed faucibus metus eu dui. Nullam nec magna. Mauris eget libero vel diam posuere congue. Aliquam velit nibh, viverra sed, tincidunt ac, dictum non, pede. Fusce lectus diam, eleifend vel, bibendum nec, ullamcorper a, mi. Integer eros. Mauris odio. Pellentesque nulla felis, malesuada facilisis, consequat in, pretium id, nunc. Proin vitae dolor nec ante pulvinar semper. Nam non ante. Sed eu erat ut massa molestie egestas.

But the reason I did not post it in the correct forum was because I have NO knowledge of HTML or ANY code for that matter. I stated this in my question.

Do you have any solutions that are not of HTML or code and work with the programs I stated????

Thanx,

Not of HTML or code? I don't quite understand how you expect to achieve this as webpages are built using HTML. You will have to use HTML. End of.

Post the code you are using for your Bio page.

Cheers.

I take it that you have never used Microsoft Frontpage?????? This takes your images, links, text, etc. etc. and converts it to code when its published... how ??? I do not know. Thats why I was asking if anyone knows how when I mentioned that in my question. Did you actually read my whole question??? I'm not trying to be rude and appreciate your help. I have learned this stuff on my own and work fulltime and have a family so i don't have the time to sit and learn code otherwise I sure would have a long time ago. So I use the software that converts to code for me. Could you still help or direct me to someone that may???


Thanx again,

Mike

Hi Mike.

You need to understand that these forums are mostly concerned about the actual coding, so the people here are going to be thinking in code, rather than any specific IDE feature.

I understand that you may not have time to learn the actual code, but unless your IDE has a button named "Auto-Scroll text", you will have to code it by hand.

Whether Frontpage has such a button, I do not know, I avoid Microsoft products as much as I can, but I somehow doubt it.

This could be done fairly easily in Flash, if you have access to that. Shouldn't be hard to figure out and it's all possible without *any* code whatsoever. (Although there are certain drawbacks to using Flash).

I'm going to move this over the the HTML forum. Maybe the experts there will know more about Frontpage than we here in the PHP forum.
