I'm running into an issue with displaying a marquee across pages on a site that has an index page and calendar page outside of Structure, while all other pages are within Structure. The code I'm trying to run in the header is:

<div class="demo">   
 <marquee behavior="scroll" scrollamount="1" direction="left" width="350">
   {exp:channel:entries channel="marquee" limit="3" status="open"}

It displays fine on /index and /calendar which are NOT the Structure pages. For every other page I can see the marquee loading however the content between the paragraph tags is blank such as:

The reason I'm wondering if this is an issue with how the templates are Structure is because when I try:

<div class="demo">
<marquee behavior="scroll" scrollamount="1" direction="left" width="350">
  <p>Hello, this is a test.</p> 

The marquee loads as I would like it across all pages; Structure and Non-Structure.

To get around the HTML tag I'm using Remy Sharp's Marquee jquery in the footer as such:

  $('div.demo').marquee('pointer').mouseover(function () {
  }).mouseout(function () {
  }).mousemove(function (event) {
  if ($(this).data('drag') == true) {
  this.scrollLeft = $(this).data('scrollX') + ($(this).data('x') - event.clientX);
  }).mousedown(function (event) {
  $(this).data('drag', true).data('x', event.clientX).data('scrollX', this.scrollLeft);
  }).mouseup(function () {
  $(this).data('drag', false);

as found on: http://remysharp.com/2008/09/10/the-silky-smooth-marquee/.

Any ideas of what I'm over looking here?

Try adding a dynamic="off" parameter to your channel entries tag - though I'm not sure how this will pan out with Structure.

{exp:channel:entries channel="marquee" limit="3" status="open" dynamic="off"}

    Worked like a charm. Totally groovy. Overlooked that parameter :/
