I tweaked my homepage center a while ago and I now have a small empty space towards the bottom. I would like to put one of our current store reviews in there but I'd like to include the formatting and the stars too.

Is there something I can cut and paste to add one there? It does not have to be dynamic, I'd want to be able to just change it up occasionally by hand.

I just had a review that sums up our "value proposition" better than I could have ever put it. I know I could just cut and paste something in, but if I could I'd like to paste in the entire review with stars.

Brenda, could be I'm not understanding.

Why can't you just take a screenshot and make it a graphic if you want the whole thing as is? Or make a new graphic with wording and stars?

Then just FTP a new image when you want to replace??

Here is a 'scrolling message we had along the top of our webpage on a previous version of our site. It worked really well.

<div id="scrolling_msg"><marquee scrollamount="3">Customer Testimonials - - - <img src="/v/vspfiles/assets/images/star5.gif"> Used Smith & Wesson 67-F Comp - .38 Special + P. I've been looking for this Performance Center Model 67 for awhile. The ad said it was "like new" condition. It was! From the time I clicked "add to cart", until I picked it up from my FFL was about 4 days. DA does excellent work! Ronald B. ~ Marietta, GA ////////// <img src="/v/vspfiles/assets/images/star5.gif"> Thanks Double Action! My order was just what I had requested. The price was right. I received it in only 4 days after I placed the order. I would like to recommend double action to all the sportsmen out there. Ken C. ~ St Cloud, MN ////////// <img src="/v/vspfiles/assets/images/star5.gif"> The sales crew there is courteous and very willing to answer any questions you might have. Rating: Excellent! Bill B. ~ Warren, MI ////////// <img src="/v/vspfiles/assets/images/star5.gif"> Nothing less than perfect! I gotta say this was one of the best experiences online I've had. Not only did they have the BEST price on my item, the shipping was free and fast! This was my first order from DA and it won't be my last. Highly recommended!

Marquee tag is obsolete and should not be used.

Well, that would be the simple thing to do wouldn't it! So simple I never even thought of it! Sometimes images of text do not have the best readability plus they can't resize as well to the screen but for now the Image I think would be the easiest way to get it up quickly. Thanks so much for the obvious solution, just not to me - my mind must have already "retired"

Marc- For the code above if I took out the "marquee tag" would I be able to us that in my store too?

GGG - Used an combination of text heading and image review - Works and looks perfect! Thanks again for the idea - so quick and easy I'd have never thought to use it!

Glad to hear. You can always count on me for the easy stuff. The other stuff...um, not so much. ;)
