A scrolling, animated text banner

Updated over a week ago

This section is reminiscent of an illuminated marquee sign such as ones seen above the entrances of hotels, theatres, or other venues. Here's how to set up a virtual, fully customizable version you can use on your website!

Step 1 - Within the page editor, click "Add section" and find the "Marquee text" block

Step 2 - Customize the Section

The settings on the left will be reflected in the preview on the right. You can change the text, how it looks, functions, and more.
