Hey there and thanks for watching WPBeginner.
In this video you’ll learn how to add a news ticker in WordPress. Adding a news ticker helps with creating dynamic
content on your site. To get started I’ve added the ditty news ticker
plugin. After activating it, I can go to the news ticker link here and start adding ticker
items. If I’m promoting a series of posts, I can
add a title, the url and if I want the browser to open in a new tab or not I can put that here. I can even give it a no follow attribute if I want. I can add as many as I want by clicking on
the green plus button. Now I can configure which ticker mode to show.
News sites do the scroll option, but I can also rotate or just list the items on my website. I’m going to choose scroll and now I can configure
the scroll settings. When I’m done with all of that, I can save my ticker
and I’ll get a shortcode to add to my post, page, or sidebar widget. I can even use the php function to put in
my theme file. I’ll put the shortcode in a widget to show
you what it looks like here. I hope you liked this video and found it helpful. If you did, click on the like button below
