Project Description


News ticker inspired by the one on the BBC News website.


  • jQuery-based, lightweight and easy to use news ticker.
  • Configurable via configlet.
  • Users have full control on what items to display by using collections.


  • Open ‘News Ticker Settings’ 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.


The configlet.

The news ticker in action.


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

    eggs =
  2. You may need to extend a five.grok known good set (KGS) to make sure that you get the right versions of the packages that make up five.grok

    extends =
  3. You may also need to pin zope.schema to version 3.8.0 or higher

    zope.schema = 3.8.0

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 ”collective.newsticker” and click the ‘Activate’ button.

Note: You may have to empty your browser cache and save your resource registries in order to see the effects of the product installation.
