In the tutorial I will show you how simple is to get some news from an xml on a live website, an rss feed. And afterward we will apply some cool flash text effects on your news. Here is how the final result looks like:

Creating a FIFA World Cup Statistics Chart

Since the FIFA World Cup 2010 is in progress I was thinking that it would be interesting to create a statistics chart with all FIFA editions dating back to 1930, to see how things have evolved.

<script type=”text/javascript” src=”/includes/ImageShowPro/xtdProBanner1.js”></script>
<script type=”text/javascript” src=”/includes/ImageShowPro/xtdProBannerLayout.js”></script>

  • edit the file where you want the slideshow to appear and add the rendering script (for example if you want to replace the typical Wordpress theme with the slideshow, edit the header.php file and add the rendering script there (again, below it’s just a sample): (more…)
