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 “Select number of record at the same time in scroll”?
This text-box is to set the no of record to display (in front end) at the same time.

Q5. What is “Scroller text length”?
This is to fix the number of character for each title to show in the scroller.

Q6. Why my news content overlap each other?

    I am using Drupal 7.14 and have the extracted continuous rss scrolling folder in my /sites/all/modules/ folder. I was able to enable the module in the admin>>module page, and I can configure the block in the admin>>structure>>blocks page, but when I go to admin>>structure (Step 2 in your instructions) there is no option called continuous rss scrolling. I can choose a block for it to display in and choose configuration under the amdin>>structure>>blocks page. If I leave the default settings as shown above, I get error messages.

    ” Warning: mysql_real_escape_string(): A link to the server could not be established in continuous_rss_scrolling_generate_block() (line 231 of /sites/all/modules/continuous_rss_scrolling/continuous_rss_scrolling/continuous_rss_scrolling.module).

    There is also a similar error referencing line 233. On the admin>>structure>>blocks configuration page, there is an option to show the block on all pages, or to only show on listed pages. When I select only show on listed pages, and list my home page, the errors go away but the rss scroller does not appear. I’ve tested in Chrome and IE with the same results.

    After install no errors.

    Running configured block produces numerous errors:
    Warning: mysql_real_escape_string(): Can’t connect to local MySQL server through socket ‘/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock’ (2) in continuous_rss_scrolling_generate_block() (line 231 of /hermes/waloraweb006/b1478/moo.laarrl/drupal/sites/all/modules/continuous_rss_scrolling/continuous_rss_scrolling.module).

    … nothing displays in the block

    Any ideas? ? ?
