Blinking Text and scrolling marquees - oh my! - Revisit the 90s

Ever had a hankering to revisit the 90s web experience and have blinking text and scrolling marquees all over your forum? No.. me either. But what the hell, here's three bbcodes to supply just that!

Scrolling Marquee
Blinking Text
and combining the two for a Blinking Scrolling Marquee.

If you use this, you're insane. . . . just sayin'

To install, download the zip and navigate to your ACP, Custom BBCodes and import the xml file. Then go to EXTRA.css and add the following:-...

These BBCodes changed my life, and they will change yours!

My latest project is a horror-themed forum dedicated to GeoCities, and let me tell you that these BBCodes are exactly what I have been looking for. :banana:

Since adding these amazing BBCodes to my site I have:

ai137.photobucket.com_albums_q213_KatsuraKotonoha_Point_zpsy4zybgi8.gif Gotten over 9000 hits on my hit counter! ai137.photobucket.com_albums_q213_KatsuraKotonoha_Counter_zpsry3n3eck.gif
ai137.photobucket.com_albums_q213_KatsuraKotonoha_Point_zpsy4zybgi8.gif Gotten three times as many content submissions for my site's Hate Mail page! :woohoo:
ai137.photobucket.com_albums_q213_KatsuraKotonoha_Point_zpsy4zybgi8.gif Been contacted by the Prince of Nigeria via email. :wow:

In short: Install these BBCodes! They will change your life and turn you into the single most popular person in your neighborhood. :dancer:

Sorry, not quote, but URL.
Both of the Links you posted in that 1st message seem to point to the same message.

Um, not sure what you mean here.

Both of those links point to the same message.
Just wondering why it's referenced twice in your message.

Sometimes I kinda miss the old blink tag. Anybody else remember back in the old days when forums used HTML and some bozo would forget to close his container and the whole page would blink until he signed back on and fixed it? Jeesh!

No. Forget what I said about missing it.

I really dont miss the blinking text but I dont mind the scrolling text: as long as it not the entire page and that it was used for showing new flash etc.

This thread ==> Lord. Have. Mercy! bahahaha
Nice share Morganna - I'm sure some insane persons will appreciate it. I'd install them all on JPiC if dust ceased to exist :ROFLMAO:

Okay. 3 cheers to the song that sparked the utter madness that some of us old fogies refer to as the 90s...
