The second block of code should be placed at the very end of a page, ideally just before the </body> tag. This second block of code contains the main script tag and , the configuration parameters and the content to be scrolled. Below are the two blocks of code. Add these to a page and adjust the parameter values to meet your requirements. (see table below for the function of each parameter).
