Web based Digital Signage - Need a RSS ticker and Text Reader
We have just bought some software to do Digital Signage but it is absolutely useless and "is blocked by the firewall" apparently :rolleyes:
Im looking at a (possibly) temp measure of doing a web based one written in html/php. I was thinking of using Joomla but this seems overkill for the purpose so have started making my own. So far i have got a layout with a slideshow gallery pulling pics from a folder - this is the one in the edugeek joomla just pulled apart abit.
Im now looking for some tickers. I need one to scroll horizontally across which will pull from an RSS feed. And i need a vertical one which pulls from a text file, or even better, multiple text files.
It also struck me that my gallery will limit me to pictures only, so a media player would be better.
Any suggestions on the above? I may yet go for a cut down Joomla install but want to give this a shot first.
