Testing marquee with scrolling pictures



After some initial failed testing, finally succeeded to incorporate horizontal scrolling pictures at Testing Blogger xml templates.

The script used to display those horizontal scrolling graphics is as follows:

<iframe src=" http://site.personnel.free.fr/scroller.htm" height="158" width="100%" scrolling="No" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" frameborder="0"></iframe>

To do this, it is advisable to first backup whatever page elements (gadgets) that can be backed up and also backup the template so that you can return if anything goes wrong.

Then go to LAYOUT > EDIT HTML to open the template editor and first tick
[ x ] expand widget templates
and search for (make this task easier by keyboard shortcut ctrl+F to find the code):

<div id='header-wrapper'>

and immediately below that line add the iFrame:

<iframe src=" http://site.personnel.free.fr/scroller.htm" height="158" width="100%" scrolling="No" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" frameborder="0"></iframe>

and thus finally end up with

<div id='header-wrapper'>
<iframe src=" http://site.personnel.free.fr/scroller.htm" height="158" width="100%" scrolling="No" marginheight="0" marginwidth="0" frameborder="0"></iframe>


Preview and if happy, save the template.
