mh Simple Marquee News Ticker


Simple Marquee, developed for Joomla!, is a module which is especially characterized by its simplicity.

Text is directly added in the module itself. HTML is allowed.

Furthermore, it is possible to show different modules with different texts, placeholders, speeds and directions at once.


Install the module with Joomla!’s integrated installer. Please make sure, that you install the fitting version of Simple Marquee to your current Joomla! application.


Using this module with Joomla 1.5 requires Mootools Version 1.2.5, which can be loaded since Joomla version 1.5.23 by the Mootools Upgrade plugin. This component requires PHP version 5.2 or higher to run on your server.


Uninstalling the component with the Joomla! installer will remove all files, folders and database entries.


Install newer versions with the Joomla! installer. It’s not necessary to remove the older version before installing.
Your former configuration settings will keep alive.
