Hi, how do you make marquees go slower? :thumbsup:

What particular Marquee are you working with? Could you provide a link to your page containing the marquee script or a link to the page you obtained the script from? There's most likely a variable you can modify to change the speed of the marquee (example: var speed=6, 5, 4, 3, etc.), but for specific help, we'll need to see the code you're working with ;).

That's where i learned my marquees from but it says nothing about speed. Thanks for helping me. ^_^

It would still be more helpful if we could see the code you created after reading the tutorial. There are a few variations you could have come up with after following the tutorial. What do you have set for your 'scrollAmount' and 'scrollDelay'?

I didn't put them in, I just let it go by default.

Ok, I threw together a quick example of using the marquee tag. See the bolded scrollamount="8" in the example? Change the 8 to a higher number to speed it up and a lower number to slow it down. Again, this is a pretty basic example and I don't know how you have your code set up, but you can add the 'scrollamount' attribute to what you have now to adjust the seed ;) :

<marquee width="350" height="100" direction="left" behavior="scroll" scrollamount="8">
Some text in the marquee tag...

Does this help you out?

People really dislike those because they can't read them...Be forwarned if it's a biz site. :cool:

Err, that's prolly why he wants to slow it down ;) The slower it moves, the easier it is to read :D

Here is a marquee taht I built for my site, and the speed is adjustable in the code:

<table><td><center><tr><strong><marquee scroll amount="1" scroll delay="40" height="19" width="729"
style="BORDER-RIGHT: #999999 groove; BORDER-TOP: #666666 groove; FONT-SIZE: 10pt; BORDER-LEFT: #999999 groove; COLOR: rgb(215,215,215); BORDER-BOTTOM: black groove; FONT-FAMILY: Verdana; BACKGROUND-COLOR: rgb(0,0,0)"
border="0">EXAMPLE TEXT EXAMPLE TEXT</marquee></strong></tr></td></table>

It is completely customisable. If you want, use it.
