View Full Version : Marquee
10-31-2004, 10:04 AM
Hey I just joined a few weeks ago. I am sixteen years old, I am trying to make a web page for our 4-H program but have no idea how to do it. I will be using FrontPage 2000. Right now I am messing around with the software and I was wondering how can I put a Marquee in my home page? I wanted it to go in a table at the top of my page below the title but I can't get it to insert. I would really like some help please.

Hi there, and welcome to our forum .....
To help you get started with FrontPage please check out our Tutorial section on this forum (some of the items wont look exactly the same as they are based on FP2002 but the gist of how to do things is much the same as with 2000) also you can check out some tutorials on this site FP basic tuts (http://www.FrontPageTutorials.com) - you will find a link there on how to insert a Marquee (scrolling text box) ......
if that doesnt help you then please can you explain what happens when you try to insert one ... what goes wrong.
The marquee is basically a IE component .. not viewable in most NS browsers (and maybe some others) where static text will show. It may be that your compatibility is not set correctly. So go to Tools/Page Options/compatibility and make sure the box says IE only ... then you can get a marquee .. if it is set for NS, then the marquee option I think is greyed out and not usable.
Hope that helps some .... just shout again if not
Thanks for posting

Thank's, changing the IE & NS seting did the ticket. Should I use this commponet? This website is mosly going to be used as a resource for Tulsa County 4-H'ers.

Should you use it .. well, that is really up to you. Lots of animated stuff on a website can be off putting .... I dont know what else you have on website. But ... as some browsers do not see scrolling text (marquee) what you need to do, is make sure it well fit on one line in your table.... if it does, then go stuff it into the marquee :D: ... browsers that dont view a marquee, most times will just view static text .... so, why not ... go give it a whirl.
BTW ... umm, what/who are 4-H'ers :confused: - I will use the excuse of being from the UK to back up my ignorance :roll:

Here is our National web site http://www.4-h.org/ it will explain what 4-H is. I have really enjoyed the program. I have been a member for the past five year. Hear is our County web site that I am going to compleatly redo http://www.osuext-tulsaco.org/4h/4h.html. I am just redoing the 4-H side not the Extension side. [ :thinking: ]
