Live News is a WordPress plugin inspired from the news tickers used by broadcast television stations.
This versatile plugin can be use to display in real time information such as:

Latest news
Financial news
Weather warnings
Election results
Sport results
Advertising messages
Featured articles
The latest tweets
An RSS feed
And More …

Note that all the colors, the graphical assets, and the typography used in the news ticker can be easily customized, so you can match the style of your website.
Four Sources of News
Manually create the news from the back-end, automatically generate the news from your posts, retrieve the news from an RSS feed or use the tweets of a Twitter account to generate the sliding news.
100% Customizable
Use the 56 customizable options per news ticker, 4 options per featured news, 9 options per sliding news and 4 general options to create an unlimited number of news tickers. Each news ticker can have different colors and typography, different sources of news and different behaviors.
Super Optimized
This plugin is suitable to be used on websites with high traffic or hosted on shared servers with limited resources. Since it uses the powerful WordPress Transients API the impact of the news tickers on the performance of the website will be negligible.
Multisite Ready
Feel free to install this plugin in a single WordPress installation or in a WordPress multisite environment. Single activations, network activations or activations on single sub-sites of the network are supported.
Multilanguage Ready
Live News comes by default in English and Italian, if you want to translate the plugin in another language simply create a translation file or manually translate it with a multilanguage plugin.
