Adding a ticker to the top bar?
I put a ticker plugin into my header but would prefer to put it into my top bar. I’m guessing I’ll need code to go into my child theme.
I’m seeing this code in Firebug:
<div id="rss" class="clearfix">
<a title="Subscribe to 's RSS feed" href="http://www.happycatshaven.org/feed/"></a>
</a><a title="Visit 's Facebook page" href="http://www.facebook.com/pages/Happy-Cats-Haven/262012493829515">
According to the developer’s website, the id is id=”js-news”
Do I just put that into my child theme? The website is happycatshaven.org
Thanks for any pointers,
Use an action hook widget area and drag the WP News Ticker widget there. (Try using the
graphene_top_barwidget area to start, but you may need to change this.)
The only difference is that you won’t use a text widget; you’ll just use the plugin widget.
It unticked the Show Specific Posts button in the Slider pane when I activated 1.5.5. I activated my child theme and ticked it back in. So I guess the protocol is activate the latest version, then reactivate the child theme, right?
Meanwhile, I now have the Advanced tab and managed to get the ticker into a space below the menu, so I’m guessing with some trial and error I can find the right action hook to get it into the top bar.
Thanks once again!
You can try adding this to your custom css:
But the styling is being called from your plugin. So, you might have to make the adjustments in the plugin css.
But give mine a try first. You can always remove it if it doesn’t work.
