The simplest way to get scrolling text is to look for a Joomla extension. The Joomla Extension Directory has extensions to achieve lots of nice effects and functionality, and most of them are available for free. It's a good starting point for many of your Joomla-related problems.

I suggest you take a look at this extension: http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/news-display/articles-display/news-tickers-a-scrollers/6677. Other alternatives can be found here: http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions/news-display/articles-display/news-tickers-a-scrollers

In case you decide to use another code (using jQuery), keep in mind that most editors in Joomla (like TinyMCE) will strip out most of your JavaScript code. The best way to use custom code is to create your own Joomla Module. It's not hard, but requires some PHP experience.

An easier way to add custom code is to use a Custom Code Module, basically a text module without filtering. That way you can add CSS, JavaScript, PHP and HTML code without problems.

  • It seems to be working fine now, but you should hide the module title (in Module manager, set "Show Title" to No, and set the width to 300 in the plugin settings if you're going to use it in that position. Don't be afraid of using extensions, that's the best part of Joomla.
