      Hi there, everyone who has commented on a great plugin. Just like the coment I am replying to I would love to slow the plugin down If admin could find a solution for us not so savvy website writers I would appreciate it thank you for a great plugin though. You also could do with doing a donation with the plugin. As I like to feel I have contributed to the person who has done all the hard work for us

    I got it working in sidebar widget so I know my content is set correct. But I don’t get anything to show in a page. I added code to page .

    Shouldn’t there be a line to actually call it? No where mentioned in your docs.

    I use super-slideshow and that works.

    How do you center the text in the widget. Right now it’s too far left aligned. How do you center the whole thing?

    • Admin
      August 12, 2010 at 4:04 am #

      it depends on your wordpress theme CSS, create separate theme for announcement widget in your theme css.

    Love the plugin. But it doesn’t seem to stop consistently on mouseover . Sometimes it will stop and other times it will just keep on scrolling through two or three items before stopping.

    is there an adjustment?

    Hi Gopi,

    Great plugin, I was searching for one like this for some time now.

    Could you help me on this one?

    The plugin doesn’t seem to work with the “Global Translator” plugin. ie it won’t translate the content within the vertical scroll plugin.

    Is there a solution for this?


    • admin
      August 15, 2010 at 6:02 am #

      Hi, u mean clash between plug-in or u want to translate the language along with translator plug-in.

      • Chinthaka
        August 15, 2010 at 10:03 am #

        Gopi, thanks for the reply!

        If you could check this link:

        When the page is translated using the translator at the top everything is translated except for the announcements.

        Is there a way to fix this?


        • Admin
          August 15, 2010 at 12:52 pm #

          Hi, if am right , “Global Translator” plug-in translate all the text with in the page, but our content are present with in java-script so its not translated.

          • Chinthaka
            August 15, 2010 at 10:52 pm #

            Thanks for the reply. I see. So is there no way to fix it?

            The whole page translates when I use the translator from the Google toolbar though.

            Anyway, I should say yours is the best vertical scrolling plugin that is out there!

            September 29, 2010 at 2:01 pm #

            just want to ask if there is a way to solve this issue of the global translator not translating the contents of announcement and scrolling news?

            I really like your plug-in and I want to continue using it but I also need the global translator… I need them to work together. =(

          • Admin
            September 29, 2010 at 5:03 pm #

            Hi friends, i think the global translator translate the word from the page(ie it translate content from the page not from the java-script) so this scrolling is a pure java-script so it is not translating….
            please give any idea so i ll try to modify the plugin.

    Really great plug-in. I just used it in the announcement section of this site:

    Is it possible to have the announcements/news come in as a fade-in effect, instead of the vertical scrolling? Can this be done in the javascript easily?

    Thanks for such a simple and effective plugin!

    Thank you for the new plugin because I had to use it to make continually scrolling captchas for one of my visitors.

    But what I wanted to know is if there is a way to change “Announcement” to some other word or words? I tried to change it to “Scrolling Captchas” in the settings area, but it still says “Announcement”.

    OK. Wait. Sorry, but I’ll leave this for other people. I just found out that it didn’t change because i was still logged into my blog. Now it is changed!

    Thank you!!

    Why can’t you use the Enter key when creating announcements? Does it all have to be on one line? You should really make it possible to use multiple lines.

    I like people’s opinions as to when the dinar will revalue. However, it is apparent that some people who post saying they have a rate and date and then nothing every materializes is very annoying. They either have bad information or they are just trying to get people pumped. Those regular individuals who post with a date and/or rate, I usually have very little confidence in their postings.

    I wanted to post an answer to DD’s post about a person’s opinion, but when I login it takes me to my profile page. So a little instruction as to how to post comments would be helpful. I enjoy this site very much.

    Is there a way of setting the scroll speed? I installed it on a site and it scrolled really fast, which was quite nice. I recently played around with the ‘slide timemout’ thinking that would slow it down but it only affects the time the message stays static for.

    Since playing with that, the scroll speed is now very slow and not quite what I’m after. Is there a way to fix this? Maybe it has been brought about by a browser/plugin update, I’m not sure.

    Hi Gopi, I do like this. Using it for my testimonials, which are lengthy. When I edit the length of the widget to accommodate, and change the text size down to 9px, none of these changes reflect after updating. Also would like to slow down the scroll. Any suggestions would be helpful. Take a look on my home page and you’ll see what I mean. Thanks a bunch!

    Hi Gopi, thanks for this amazing plugin. I’ve done some simple modifications to the plugin to add multilingual support, just added 3 languages for now (English, Spanish and Catalan), but you can add more languages easily.

    Let me know if you want me to send you the source code so you can add this modifications to your next release.

    This is a great plugin for WP, thank you very much. I have it running as a widget on my home page. However, once I used the widget it is no longer available to use on the sidebar of other pages.

    Is there some way to include this slider on the sidebar of other pages? Thanks in advance..

    Great plug-in, thanks for solving a problem I had!

    Any chance that you might the availability of calling the output through a shortcode in a text widget?

    Also, I use the plug-in “Display Widgets” to show/hide various widgets for each page, but yours is the only one that it doesn’t interface with… any clues on why that may be, or how I might fix that?

    Keep up the good work!!!

    For example lets pretend i have three announcements, these three announcements will scroll and if a user clicks it it brings them to that link?

    I am looking for a plug in that seems close to announcement and vertical scroll news plugin that you have. I couldn’t find the plugin within the wordpress plugins list so I can install it. I tried to download it from your site but it doesn’t work.

    Is it a way to install it quick and simple?

    I mention that I am not so close to technical issues so please make it as simple as possible for me. So far installing the plugins that are in the wordpress list in my dashboard worked fine for me.

    Thank you very much for answer!

      Announcement and vertical scroll news & News announcement scroll both same plugin. the first plugin automatically gone from wordpress directory so create same plugin with different name.

      Continuous announcement scroller : in this plugin we can show more then 1 record at a time. this is not possible in the other plugin.

    I was looking for similar plugin and finally find it. Can I customize it? For example I would like to insert it on main page of my site , not as a common widget. Just to scroll new post titles on header section.

    Thanks again

    Ashley, Eian and Richard Boon:

    I found the way to control the speed of the slide.
    In the plugin folder, go into gAnnounce folder and edit gAnnounce.js file.
    Search for “v_slideStep” and change the value to 7 for example.

    Best regards.

    Hi Gopi,

    I had an earlier version of wordPress running on theme Apahualpa. Announcement and vertical scroll functioned just perfect. Now I have upgrade to wordPress 3.2.1 and latest version of Apahualpa and the Annoucement and… doesn’t work any more. The problem is that no announcements shows in the wizard on the sidebar. I have deleted and reinstalled the plugin and also tried some of your other announcement plugins but with the same problem. Any ideas?

    This is SO CLOSE to what we’ve been looking for. Is there a way to display the excerpt rather than the content? Speed controls would be nice too, but the excerpt is the big thing. Willing to compensate for your time if you are able to contact me.

      September 7, 2011 at 1:19 am #

      Add the excerpt in the scroller and give full page link..

    How can I use this widget for 2 independent type of news.

    let’s say that I want to see a important news on one sidebar and not too much important news on another sidebar.

    My question is: Is this situation possible and how can I use it?
