    Very nice,
    But the very first article to be shown always fades out the moment the page is loaded. Can it be set so it waits the specified time before it fades out?

      Hi Bob, Yes version 2.5 not working on MySqi because of the method mysql_real_escape_string. Please replace this method with addslashes.

      File: mod_fade_in_fade_out_article_title\tmpl\default.php
      Line: 21.
      Replace: from mysql_real_escape_string to addslashes

      This issue already fixed in the version 3.

    Very strange, worked locally on localhost and don’t work online.
    I’ve two article categories (16,17) and on the online site i don’t see anything, if i change categories i see “Undefined” so the module is working.
    I’ve removed the module, and i’ve donwloaded and installed again but i’ve the same problem.

    It’s like an expired article but the article has no expiration date and it’s of category 16 as expected.

    What’s wrong?
