  1. Hi,
    I installed your extensions (vertical scroll, excerpt scroll, etc.) but do not work! Yes, they scrolling, but only “…” !
    I’ve assigned many articles categories, but in vain.

  2. As per the above user.. Installed excerpt scroll which seemed perfect for what I need, but doesn’t work, or pull in any article/category information whatsoever.

    Pity, because this is a commercial project and we always donate to the extension developers.

  3. I installed your extensions and it’s very nice, but the page of login in the front-end is not available. I haven’t a ideas for resolve this problem. I hope what you have an suggestion.
    Sorry for my english 🙂
    Thank you

  4. Hi Gopi,
    Your plugins are exactly what I needed but I can make the vertical scroll recent article work.
    I got articles and their categories published, but when I select a category ID in the option of the module, it scrolls only dots (like if there was nothing to display).
    Working with joomla 1.7.3 and I have downloaded the last version of your module.

  5. Hi I like your extensions a lot and have downloaded some, as this one but after configuring it y see only “…” in the recent articles, I’ve seen some people in the comments with same problem, but can’t find a way to solve this.
    Thanks for your help.

  6. Hi, te extension is very good but i have the same problem, it show only “…” How can i solve this?
    Thanks a lot

  7. Hi,
    I love your small tool but it’s impossible to edit or delete messages that are uploaded once.
    I combined sce with my news-category and had to do a change due to the layout. So I shortened the article but the changes were not realized.. Even deleting the article didn’t stop sce to show it.
    Empty cache neither did.
    What can I do?

  8. Installed this mod, which looks great in demo. However, it is not displaying the header/link, or excerpt test. The only thing it displays is the “…” and they are scrolling.

    Is there a fix available for this yet?

    thank you in advance.

  9. I fixed the problem with the ‘…’ and no content/articles.
    In tmpl/default.php: replace function mysql_real_escape_string with mysql_escape_string (lines 30, 32)

  10. I am testing the “Scroll article excerpt” in my localhost and I only get “…”, I am using a joomla 1.7 with a Beez5 template.
    Any suggestions on how I can succeed?


    • Hi Mario, 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 please use the latest module. or alternatively you can easily replace the method from mysql_real_escape_string to addslashes in tmpl/default.php file.

  11. I found the solution, it is simple!
    In modules / mod_scroll_article_excerpt / mod_scroll_article_excerpt.js
    change 10 and 2000 in any number you want in these:

    setTimeout(“saevsra_scroll();”, 10)

    and in
    setTimeout(“saevsra_scroll();”, 3000);

  12. i have successfully installed they module and displayed well too but clicking the link doesn’t go to the article. looking to solve the problem

  13. i have installed this module , when the website was offline the module was working fine , when i published the website , the data in the module didnt appear only 3 dots […] instead of the data
