Any good sites/ways to freely design a "latest news widget banner" thats like on

Asked by VisionaryAdvait (167points) May 27th, 2009

It seems many good sites now have a dynamic moving banner on the front page with their latest news or a picture and a caption, a big example might be the front page of WHiteHouse.Gov. Not just an RSS feed but a nicer flash looking one. Are there any good sites or ways to design this?

They are using jcarousel. It is a jquery plugin.

Any good widgets out there that are easier than changing the code every time?

Well, it depends on the source. If it is a RSS feed you could parse that. Or you could write a back-end and use a database to update it. That is actually easier than it sounds.

But really, it depends on the source of the data.

This might be closer to what you want. Demo

But you still need to feed it data.
