    I'm looking but cant seem to find a simple vertical free text scroller: javascript etc is fine. BUT.

    it cannot have a space between the last and the first post

    cannot have "rewinding"...

    mouse over stops the scrolling

    links on the text

    css formatting

    Some questions:

    1. Are you looking for a single line scroller? Like Apple's Hot News Headlines, except scrolling instead of fading.

    2. What kind of text? A single paragraph that repeats, a list that repeats, etc.?

    I have done a horizontal text scroller that has no gap. It doesn't pause on hover, but that's easy to add. I'm not sure how long it would take to whip together (if I have any time to make it), but at least know the answers to the questions above might tell me if scripts I've seen on other sites might fit your need.

    Some to look at:

    but it puts the programming in the html and its a real mess...way too messy for me to feel comfortable using

    now i feel stupider and more stupid...

    http://javascripts.vbarsan.com/

    there is an option to putting the programming in a external js file (didn't read it all the way through)

    i have not succeeded in doing that
