    I am thankful for modules you have designed and best of all there free! I do have an issue with the Information Reel module. Whenever I click on my own internal joomla article link, it puts the word “Article” on top of the article. I haven’t figured out why. If I create a menu and put the article there the word “Article” does not appear when I click on the same link. Does anybody else have the same problem.

    I am using Joomla 2.5.7, Apache 2.4.3 (Windows), PHP 5.4.7

    Well it is not bad but I don’t need a link and to put a link to your own site in place of blank is not cool! Plus the fact that you have to be some kind of a speed reader because it moves so friggen fast. How about a parameter to control the speed and also the ability to not have a link other than putting a # in there? Not to mention, have you tried to click the link of such a fast moving target? How much thought did you really put into this anyway?

    Sorry, free is free but if it does not work then it does not matter what it costs if nothing at all!
