Doing a page for my customer showing his clients and he wants a continually running banner showing his clients' logos, about 20 of them. Any idea how I should go about this please.

I advice against any moving content, since it's a huge distraction and annoyance. Some people even try to cover such content with their hand.

If you must, make it slow. I don't mean slow scrolling really, rather that you show one image a while, quickly flip to the next and show that a while. More of a slideshow than a scroller. I find this less distracting.

You can use Flash or a combination of JavaScript and CSS. There are lots of ready scripts on the net. Just google the combination you want.

Thanks for that, I almost added in my post that I consider it really naff and unnecessary. I've been wondering how to let the customer know that, though smile.gif I've already had to put the date and time in the corner because he thinks 'it shows the website is dynamic and up to date'.

They need it viewable on an iPad so Flash is out but perhaps a fade in single image in javascript would satisfy his aesthetic requirements.

Thanks again.

Yes, different content fading in and out (not too fast) might be less distracting.

To some. To me fading is worse. It makes me nervous. Not only do I have to look at the images, I have to wait for them too! biggrin.gif

Although the page is just a list of 2 dozen clients - I think users would get tired of looking at them after the first few anyway.

Oh, I missed that part. If the page is only about clients I guess the annoyance caused by the scroller doesn't hurt that much. I'd still use static logos next to each client name, though.

To close the post, thanks for your comments and help, I've put a scrolling carousel of customer logos which I don't think will matter as I can't see anyone staying on that page very long, and a tactful and diplomatic email has dissuaded my client from having permanently scrolling contact details in the footer. smile.gif
