Marquee help please

P: n/a
Hi all

I have been asked to include a marquee onto a site.

What is required is the marquee to be on all pages of the site and it wants
to be changeable at any time without editing every page.

Is there a way that the marquee can call up a txt file, this text file could
then be easily changed whenever the customer wants to change the wording.

Thanks
John

You have a dumb customer and your customer has a dumb employee.

Use server side processing and include it wherever you want it.

No. But with server-side includes, it doesn't need to "call up a txt
file", it only has to be inserted where you want it to show. And as an
include file, it could be a plain text file that the "customer" can edit
at will.

Is doable with js using an XMLHttpRequest to the server for the file and
pasting it, however, server side is easier, I'd go with Randy's
suggestions, use SSI include directive, or if using PHP or ASP, includes.
