A jumping marquee


I have a scrolling news box (righ column) on
cadante dot com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=66
that when first loading the page it jumps, more precisely it does so at the third news, meaning it scrolls fine the first two, and then instead of scrolling the third, and restart scrolling, it jumps to the first news not showing the third news; when I refresh the page it scrolls fine.

Tested on firefox and ie (windows), and safari (mac).

Thank you.

Off Topic:

Seems this is really a JS issue rather than CSS? I’ll move it to the JS forum.


I didn’t see a jump when I loaded the page but it wouldn’t surprise me as the marquee tag is an antiquated and invalid tag that shouldn’t be used in modern web pages. You would be better off with a JS scroller which you could delay until page loading so that you don’t get any jumps while content loads.

There are bugs filed for the marquee tag in Firefox so it seems to be generally buggy and I would avoid it.

The mighty Remy Sharp has a good solution for juddery marquees.
Maybe this’ll help solve your issue, too.
Let me know if you need any help with the implementation.

I had a feeling about it, sorry, and thanks for moving it.

@Paul O’B and Pullo

Thank you both for the input, and suggestions, I ended up using buildinternet dot com/project/totem/, which I had tried before, but for some reason couldn’t get it to work, anyhow I retried it with another approach, and seems working.
