Display alternating text

Is it in Confluence possible to display alternating text? What I would like to do is create a box on a page. In that box every e.g. 10 seconds another text is displayed.

Something like you see on many webpages, a sort of banner with e.g. 5 items, each item is displayed for a number of seconds, than the next item is displayed. An example at the top of this page http://www.portofantwerp.com/en.

Can this be done in Confluence?

Patrick,

You can do this via HTML within the confluence page. Check out the following and see if that is an option:
 http://members.core.com/~rnbovara/alternator.html

(This will require use of the HTML macro within confluence https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/HTML+Macro)

Can that code be embedded in a user macro?

Yes, you should be able to port this into a user macro. I have other similar macros running without issue. https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Writing+User+Macros Another option is to use a Marquee macro (Scrolling text). Here is that macro: <span><marquee behavior="scroll" direction="up" width=100% height=800 > $body </marquee></span>

Thanks, I'll try the marquee. My knowledge for how to include the javascript in a user macro is not enough I think, and the alternating text is inside the macro.
