Easy Scrolling Message

Published: Wednesday, 16 July 2014
phpbb2 may be dead since phpbb3 has taken its place but some of you may still using it as their preferred forum. At least I do.
Some time ago I had to refine a homepage of mine and I wanted to implement a scrolling text to a phpbb2 forum. I searched for hours just to find an abandoned code called ESM (Easy Scrolling Message).
Unfortunately it was a very rudimentarily designed phpbb2 extension and it doesn't fit my needs in any way. So I decided to give it a revamp.
The result is ESM 1.1.
Maybe there is someone out there who still needs such an extension and is grateful to find it at this place.
Have fun.
