Can anyone direct me to a tutorial on how to create a continously scrolling news box that pulls data from a mySQL database?

Wrong section of these forums for sure.


Other than that, this is a very complicated problem or at least has the potential to be. Mix this:

and call me in the morning?

But honestly, this is could be pretty tough unless you are quite familiar with php and general web-building and also databases. You will need to have your data set up well on the database end in order to display it properly on a webpage. Another option would be to simple pop an iframe on the page and then use the php method to extract the information from the database and then style it with CSS. Fun times.

I'm a full time proffessional web developer, I work with php and mySQL every day ;)

What I meant to specify in my original post is that I'm trying to do this in flash. But tbh any method that can continously scroll dynamic content (with no gap) and doesnt use css positioning would do. I am unaware of any method to do this that isnt flash.
