  12. Hi, is an excelent pluguin…how can i put more than one element en the same page, when i put 2 or more only the first one scroll…tanks

  13. Hey there, I believe your internet site may be possessing browser compatibility problems.
    When I check out your blog website in Opera, it appears fine but when opening in World-wide-web Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wished to present you a fast heads up! Other then that, wonderful weblog!

  14. It’s not working in 2.5. Seems like it doesn’t get the article title.
    Part of source code:
    crs_array[0] = ‘‘;

    • Having the same issue in 2.5. The html is rendered, you can see it when you view page source however, no text, links, headlines are displayed.

    • No. Received an e-mail on May 5th that he would have a look (I did sent the code by e-mail because I couldn’t put in in this comment), but still no reaction.
      Should be an easy fix I suppose, but I’m not a PHP expert and can’t solve it myself.

  15. Login module specially registration, forget password is not working with this module etc. I am using Joomla 2.5.1. It is really really frustatio

    • yes, i have the same problem.
      login/registration page with this module not working (v 1.7.3).

      add this line (ex. number 19) to this file:

      if(!class_exists(‘ContentHelperRoute’)) require_once (JPATH_SITE . ‘/components/com_content/helpers/route.php’);

  16. Hi! I also found error in displaying titles, but used the following modifications in the default.php of the module.

    From here -> $vspost_display = $args[‘vspost_display’]; /* line 17*/

    $magic_on = 0;
    if (get_magic_quotes_gpc() === 1) {
    $magic_on = 1;

    if (!empty($items)) {
    $vspost_x = “”;
    $vspost_html = “”;
    $vspost_count = 0;
    foreach ($items as $item) {
    if ($magic_on == 0) {
    $vspost_title = addslashes($item->title);
    } else {
    $vspost_title = $item->title;

    $vspost_link = JRoute::_(ContentHelperRoute::getArticleRoute($item->slug, $item->catslug, $item->sectionid));

    $dis_height = $vspost_height . “px”;
    $vspost_html .= “”;
    $vspost_html .= “” . $vspost_title . ““;
    $vspost_html .= “”;

    $vspost_x .= “crs_array[$vspost_count] = ‘$vspost_title‘; “;

    To here -> $vspost_height = $vspost_height + 4; /*line 46*/

    • Hi,
      (joomla 2.5) I solved my problem (no title after the article-links displayed) with >addslashesmysql_real_escape_string< . Being no php-expert I'll hope no further problems appears. Thanks K

  17. Is there a way to prevent the scroller from ‘halting’ on each item. I would like the module to continuously scroll. Is this governed in the js file? I am using Joomla 1.7

  18. Hello, do you know what file I can find the scroll speed in? Client would like it to scroll slower, but I do not want another extension because yours works so perfectly.

    • Hi Sakthidasan,

      This may be issue on mysql_real_escape_string this PHP method, please use the updated version, i have already replaced this method from the module.

  19. Vertical scroll recent article

    On our frontpage I only can see the article titles scrolling and no contenttext. Am I doing something wrong?

  20. Modify tmpl/default.php to view the follow sintax: • –

    //@$vspost_title = mysql_real_escape_string($item->title);
    $vspost_id = mysql_escape_string($item->id);
    $article =& JTable::getInstance(‘content’);
    @$vspost_date = $article->get(‘modified’);
    @$vspost_title = mysql_escape_string($item->title);

    @$vspost_link = JRoute::_(ContentHelperRoute::getArticleRoute($item->slug, $item->catslug, $item->sectionid));

    $dis_height = @$vspost_height .”px”;
    @$vspost_html = @$vspost_html . “”;
    @$vspost_html = @$vspost_html . “$vspost_title“;
    @$vspost_html = @$vspost_html . “”;

    @$vspost_x = @$vspost_x . “crs_array[$vspost_count] = ‘• $vspost_date – $vspost_title‘; “;

    (joomla 2.5.x)
    Best regards.
