Live News is a WordPress plugin inspired from the news tickers used by broadcast television stations to communicate the latest news, financial news, weather warnings, election results, sport results etc.
This plugin updates the news with jQuery and AJAX in real time and your users will be able to see your latest news without updating the page.
News Manually Added
You can use the Featured News menu and the Sliding News menu to manually create the news of your news tickers. This allows you to have a complete control over the content of the displayed news and the maximum level of customizability on the sliding news. Feel free to select you favorite color for each sliding news and include custom image before and after each sliding news.
For example the news of the Sliding News with Stock Market Data demo page have been manually added, and the increase/decrease icons have been uploaded and associated with the sliding news.
News from WordPress
Use the WordPress posts as the source to create news tickers based on the titles, excerpts and permalinks of your posts (all the posts or only the posts of a specific category).
News from an RSS feed
With RSS as the source of your news you will be able to generate the news ticker based on the information included in your favorite RSS feed, which might be your own WordPress RSS feed, the RSS feed of a tv channel, the RSS feed of a radio, etc.
For example in the BBC News demo the news ticker is generated based on the news included in this RSS feed provided by BBC News.
Before importing content from an RSS feed please make sure that you are authorized to do so, the BBC News page used in the plugin demo is a non-indexed page created only for demonstration purposes.
News from Twitter
Use Twitter as the source of your news so you can show the latest tweets of your Twitter account to your visitors and increase the number of your follower.
Alternatively you can also decide display the tweets of other accounts, for example in the Sliding News from Pope Francis page the news ticker retrieves the news from the @Pontifex account.
