Installing 'T4B News Ticker Pro' Plugin is as simple as installing any other WordPress Plugin. If you don't know how to install plugins, please review the two options below:

2 - Choose the plugin zip file named as t4b-news-ticker-pro-v1.0.zip and click the Install Now button
3 - Wait untill the installation process ends. When you will see the text, Plugin installed successfully click on Activate Plugin button.
4- Congratulations! you are ready to create your news ticker. Click on Settings link to setup the global settings for the news ticker.
2. Install by FTP
We recommend you to watch this 6 minutes getting started video, and then try to create your first news ticker using various news ticker options.
GLobal Settings are mainly to control CSS & JS files. You can also set a font family for your ticker of your choice. There are 7 options here:
Click on Download Export File button to generate a JSON file for you to save in your computer. This backup file contains all the configuration and setting options of your news tickers. Note that it do NOT contain posts, pages, or any relevant data, just your all news ticker options. After exporting, you can either use the backup file to restore your settings on this site again or another WordPress site.
Select a json file to upload that you exported before from Export Ticker tab, and click on Upload file and import. Wordpress do the rest for you.
Add New Ticker
1. Navigate to News Ticker >> All News Tickers and click on Add New button to add a new news ticker.
2. Enter the news ticker name and click on Add Ticker button. A ticker will be added in the ticker list table. Mouseover on the ticker name and click on Add Ticker link to start configuring ticker.
5. After configuring all the necessary fields for your news ticker click on Add Ticker Options button. Then you will get a SHORTCODE of newly created news ticker with an unique ID, which will be generated automatically. Now, paste the shortcode in your posts or pages where you would like to show news ticker and publish. Visit the newly created post/page to see the magic! :).
You can also put the below shortcode in your blog posts/pages, where you want to show News Ticker (change the "id" by news ticker):
<?php echo do_shortcode('[t4b-ticker id="1"]'); ?>
