Get the AAR Scandal News Ticker!

Display the AAR Scandal News Ticker on your site and get the latest news on the breaking scandal. See the ticker in action on the right side of this site's front page.

You can participate and get your posts about this issue linked in that news box. Just ping this URL:


Displaying this news box on your page is a simple, two-step process:

1. In the page where you're going to display it, add the following line between the <head></head> tags:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="http://boreamerica.com/aarscandal.css" type="text/css" />

Then, add the following code into the body of the page:

Note: Your posts might not show up immediately for two reasons. Trackbacks are moderated (but as long as it's about this issue it will be approved) and the news is only refreshed every 15 minutes.

UPDATE: I'm using an installation of WordPress to receive the pings, and I'm using "Feed to JavaScript" to take the trackback RSS that WP creates and turn it into the news box. However, I'm not that familiar with WP so I don't have an explanation for the first comment.

I'd also like to simply whitelist anyone who'd ping that URL so I don't have to keep approving trackbacks. I'll look into that later on, but if you're going to ping this now or in the future, leave a URL here so that if I'm able to pre-approve people I'll be able to do it.

when I pinged the URL I got a "malformed response message from Haloscan. I did put the ticker on the blog though.
