Auto-scrolling HTML
« on: October 01, 2015, 11:54:54 AM »
This feature would make my life a lot easier.  I could link to our Mailchimp weekly newsletter and have it scroll on the screen instead of having to hand change each announcement weekly.  PLEASE!!!

write a simple script (like backend PHP or node.js) that loads your URL and always point the HTML component to your PHP script.
easy and will always work without having to change the Studio config

We are able to help with this if needed.

There are a few good Mailchimp API SDKs out there that can easily fetch the latest newsletter you have sent out, and display it accordingly.
