Scrolling inside a DIV, instead of an iFrame
the_1_an_only - 2/27/2008 at 09:41 AM
I've been looking at using the Tigra scroller, and if it can be customised to work within a Div element instead of using an iFrame (for SEO) then the
Pro version will be perfect.
Can this be done easily? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

some of the scroller's features require the use of iframe
for simple div based scroller see http://www.softcomplex.com/forum/viewthread_4190/

Thanks for the link, unfortunately the script you linked to is a bit too basic for our needs.
Given that the the iFrame is required, then I figured that instead of opening the content from individual external documents, that the data to be
scrolled can be inside div tags for SEO with it's style set to display:none inside the page containing the iFrame.
In the scroll.tpl0.js file, we can use
This works fine for IE7 on a windows based machine and with Firefox.
The only (slight) snag with this kind of implementation is that if the content happens to be dynamic from a database then the scroll.tpl0.js would
also have to be generated dynamically to have the ID's passed into the array using the code above.
Edit: Cache problem resolved why this implementation was not working on Firefox/safari.
With the customisation described above, would the pro version be affected? I don't see how it would as it is only used to populate the sources, but
before purchasing the pro version I'd like to confirm compatibility.
Looking forward to your reply.

It should work with PRO version as well. If there's a problem we'll help you fix it or refund your order.
