TFN Headlines On Your Website!

Wish you could have current (up to the nano-second) TFN News Headlines on your website? Now you can. Our saucy band of tech rebels have put their collective heads together and come up with a way for you to do just that!

So show your Star Wars fanaticism and share the news today.


Version One

This version does not allow any changes to the font or font attributes.

Cut and paste the following code into your web page, exactly where you want the headlines to appear: (watch for line wrap)

<!-- TheForce.Net Javascript Headlines Code -->
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="Javascript" SRC="http://www.theforce.net/outnews/headlines.js">
</SCRIPT>

Here is how it will look on your web site:


Version Two

This version allows you to change the font attributes, but you must declare them up front, or the script will throw errors.

Cut and paste the following code into your web page, exactly where you want the headlines to appear: (watch for the line wrap).

<!-- Font Control Code -->
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="Javascript">
varFontSize = "11";
varFontColor = "Blue";
varFontType = "Arial";
</SCRIPT>

<!-- TheForce.Net Javascript Headlines Code -->
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="Javascript" SRC="http://www.theforce.net/outnews/headlines_v2.js">
</SCRIPT>

Here is how it will look on your web site:

And like the all encompassing mystical force - you'll be able to share real-time headlines from our site with your visitors. (FYI - When someone clicks on one of the news links, the link will create a new browser.)
