Sportbike World Ticker Info

SBW Taskbar Ticker.

This add-on allows you to see your most up-to-date SBW topics in your Windows Taskbar (sorry Mac and Linux users).

Works under the following operating systems (Does not work under Windows NT)

Windows 95 (With IE installed)
Windows ME
Windows 98
Windows 2000
Windows XP

You need to have a "always on" (ie Cable Modem or DSL) internet connection to use this ticker as it automatically refreshes the new topics list every 60 minutes.

To install the ticker on your Windows 98 or higher computer (also works on Windows 95 with IE5+ installed) follow these instructions.

1. Right-click on your Windows Taskbar and go to toolbars->new toolbar

2. Type "" without the quotes in the box

3. Click OK

4. Drag (Resize) your taskbar to show the scrolling messages.

XP Users Additional Info:

Make sure the Lock the Taskbar is unchecked.
Right Click the title.
Make sure that Show Title is unchecked.
Relock taskbar.
Alternatively you can drag the window open further and it will display both.

Update: I have just added an icon in the ticker window that will allow you to turn the ticker on and off.

Please post below if you have any questions / problems.
