    Ideas for Digital Signage Content

    This thread is to share ideas about digital signage content and ideas. Share your screenshots of what you have done and how you did it. Would be good to try and keep the thread tidy so it can be used as reference?

    Webcams showing Santas Grotto in Lapland and also the outside of somewhere in Lapland. Countdown to Christmas + Twitter feed runs along the train track at the bottom. Think I pinched the background off here so thanks to whoever originally posted it.

    @titch - Do you make your own layout templates? I havent used XIBO for a while but gonna look at it again for my new school. Last time I just picked a template from the template exchange site. This time Id like to attempt to create my own but not sure how easy it is.

    It is just a case of creating an image at the correct dimensions

    neither am i!! In principle its fairly easy to do, in practice not!!

    Run a competition with the kids! Its how my old school used to put photo's up each year! They had a photocompetition and the top 10/15 won prizes and had their picture framed and put up!

    How did you get the larger photo from Nat Geo's RSS feed?
    Curious, I like this idea.

    Yep. Just find the resolution of your screen then create a background in your favorite picture editor. Save as JPEG then upload to zibo as a background. Have attached all my backgrounds.Backgrounds.zip

    Only the text not the picture is from RSS feed. I used this bit og code to embed the page I wanted with the bit off the edges of the page cut off

    <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
    "http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/sport/">
    <html>
    <head>
    <title></title>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">

    <style type="text/css">
    <!--
    #container{
    width:988px;
    height:1000px;
    overflow:hidden;

    }
    #container iframe {
    width:988px;
    height:1100px;
    margin-left:-0px;
    margin-top:-280px;
    border:0;
    }
    -->
    </style>

    </head>
    <body >


    <div id="container">

    <iframe

    src="http://photography.nationalgeographic.com/photography/photo-of-the-day/" scrolling="no" width="990" height="742"></iframe>
