Anyone know if this is a plugin or something else?


I'd like to add a scrolling notification "container" to my WordPress website, similar to the one found on the Neiman Marcus website, but I'm not sure if it's a plugin or something else? Here's a link to the NM home page. The container is to the right of the logo. There's a bit of a delay while it scrolls from one notification to another:


Does anyone know what this scrolling effect is and/or how I might go about recreating it on a WordPress site?

Hi Heather. Im sure there is a jquery plugin or something, I forget what this is called. But here is a simple flexible example(html, css, js) that maybe would help. You specify a container height and then put your messages in individual "msg" divs. Every 2-5 seconds the top element is copied to the bottom, the list s moved up, and the top element destroyed.

You can adjust speed and duration and stuff in javascript.
