Installation

To enable this product in a buildout-based installation:

  1. Edit your buildout.cfg and add collective.newsticker to the list of eggs to install:
[buildout]
...
eggs =
    collective.newsticker

After updating the configuration you need to run ‘’bin/buildout’‘, which will take care of updating your system.

Go to the ‘Site Setup’ page in a Plone site and click on the ‘Add-ons’ link.

Check the box next to ‘’News Ticker’’ and click the ‘Activate’ button.

Usage

  • Open ‘News Ticker’ configlet on Plone’s ‘Site Setup’.
  • Select the collection containing the items you want to display.

That’s it! You will see the items included in the collection on a site-wide news ticker.

You can click on any item to open it.
