Frequently asked questions

Q1. Can I add more than one RSS feed at same time?
No, you can add only one RSS url at a time.

Q2. Why my news content out of range?
This is the continuous scroll, so we need to maintain the same height for the content, for that you need to update the admin property “Each scroller height in scroll”.

Q3. Can I change the scroll manner from vertical to horizontal?
No, at present option not available.

Q4. What is “Display number of record at the same time in scroll”?
This property is to set the no of record to display (in front end) at the same time.

Q5. What is “Enter max character for each feed title”?
This is to fix the no of character for each post.

Q6. Why my news content overlap each other?
This is the continuous scroll, so we need to maintain the same height for the content, for that you need to update the admin property “Each scroller height in scroll”.

    Hi,
    jep nice module. I don’t want to put more than one feed in a single module. But I need more than one module using this tool. If I do so, the tool mixes the content of module 2 in module 1.
    Any chance to start two instances?

    I like this module, but I have a few requests:

    When I use this module with danish sites, it doesn’t show locale charcters correct. Is this something you can correct?

    I would like make the scrolling slower. Any way I can do this? Maybe an extra setting in the module? :)

    To make link open in new window replace default.php line 73 to the following:

    @$crs_x = @$crs_x . “crs_array[$crs_count] = ‘$crs_post_title‘; “;

  24. spyr05
    December 5, 2012 at 8:10 am #

    basically add target=\’_blank\’ after the href=\’$crs_post_link\’ in default.php line 73
