How to Do Scrolling Marquee Messages on a Joomla Website


The Joomla content management system comes with a wide range of templates you can use to add effects to your website, including marquee messages that scroll across the page. By leveraging the marquee template, even novice web designers can create this effect by typing just a single line of code anywhere on a page.

  • Log into your Joomla administration screen. Select “Template Manager” from the “Extensions” drop-down menu in the main menu bar.

  • Click the name of the currently installed template on the Template Manager screen.

  • Click the “Edit HTML” button on the upper right of the “Template:[Change]” screen.

  • Insert the text for the marquee message into the code immediately after the <head> tag. For example: <marquee>This is my scrolling message.</marquee>.

  • Click the “Save” button on the upper right of the editing screen. After the changes are saved, the marquee will appear the next time the page is loaded in the browser.
