Hi All,

I am trying to get a New Ticker tied to the bottom of the slider as here.

As you can see I have already used it, but it's in the content box, and there is too much spacing between the items. Please help if you could at the earliest! Much obliged

You can use this CSS added to Settings > Custom Code > Custom CSS to get rid of the spacing:

Tried doing that, no changes at all. I have posted the news ticker as a shortcode in the content section, could that be an issue?

Hi Amit, Can you take a screenshot please of your Pages Template, so we can see the sections available on the template. Also can you inform us where you get the News Ticket code from ?

Hi Amit, I would recommend you remove the Shortcode from the content editor and go back to Templates. Once there, drag and drop the "ContentBox" section underneath the QuickSlider but above the Content Section. The go to Pages and edit the page in question, scroll down and click the ContentBox setting panel in PageLines Meta Settings and add the shortcode there instead. Once you have completed the above reply here and we can assist you with the CSS to move it closer to the Feature slider.
