Flashloaded has just released two very useful flash news ticker components: flashTicker and flashTickerFX are designed to display the news of your site, or short excerpts of text (with images), as well as being a way to advertise different products and special offers.

Choose flashTicker for scrolling news, or flashTickerFX, with a collection of 6 built in effects to display your text. Data can be fed through XML, text file or data array.
