  2. Hi ! I wonder why this plugin ( the settings page ) is seen for mere subscribers. Is there a way for me to get rid of this bug ? The WP version I’m using is 3.0.4 ( the newest one ).

  3. I was going to install this plugin however when it does not work on the home page of your site it does not make me feel confident about placing it on my homepage.

  4. I have used this plug in on three wp blogs without any problems and loved it! However . . . when I updated to newest wp version a bug showed up in it. Subscribers in their dashboards can see the plug in and make changes to it as well. I’ve deactivated it till the bug can be fixed, which I hope you do . . . I’ll be missing it till then!

  5. Hi

    Is there any way to have a shortcode for the plugin, so that I can include it anywhere on my pages?

    It is only possible to insert it in the PHP template, but not ideal if you don’t want it on pages.

    thank you for your support, and by the way: GREAT PLUGIN!

  6. The 6.0 version indicated fix for admin only viewable. I have the latest version and all members below Admin cannot view settings for this plugin, please let us know when this will be fixed. Thanks

  9. Hi, Thank you for creating so many wonderful and easy-to-use plugins for wordpress! Your work is great.

    I just found your Announcement Ticker Highlight Scroller. Do you have plans to add a shortcode for this plugin? I find it very simple and useful for my site, but I would like to embed it into a page an don’t know enough php, css to do so without shortcode functionality. Thank you!


  10. hi, how do i remove the title from the widget? Currently if i leave it blank, there’s simply a blank space. Wish to remove it.

    By the way, great job with the widgets!

  11. Hi from Germany,

    the W3C-Validator generate an error for this very great Plugin. My Tickertext is styled with html-code. I am not a programmer, only a simple Photographer. My Question: what should I do for a w3c validation?

    Thx for Support and Notes


  12. Hi @all,

    i have solved the Problem with the W3C-Validator. I´am replaced the Code in the “announcement-ticker-highlighter-scroller.php” with this:


    var g_aths_contents=new Array()

    var g_aths_width=”px”
    var g_aths_height=”px”
    var g_aths_css=””
    var g_aths_delay= //delay btw messages
    var g_aths_speed= //2 pixels at a time.
    var g_aths_highlightcolor=””
    var g_aths_textcolor=””

    document.write(‘#g_aths_bg a{color:’+g_aths_textcolor+’}’)
    //if (document.all || document.getElementById)

    The Validator-Check is now ok. No errors. The Codefragment works in my Theme-File single.php. Look at my site: http://blog.foto-dg.de

    Dear Gopi, thanks for this great Plugin.


  13. Hi
    I tried to use a php code in the scroller to add some variable data, but it doesn’t display anything. Any ideas how to use php inside a announcement?


  14. Hi Gopi,
    nice PlugIn that you created! But I´ve still another wish: It would be great to have the possibilitiy to stop the flow of announcements, perhaps some kind of navigation or stop-button is possible.

  15. Every time I click on SETTINGS PAGE to modify the settings (length of scroll, speed, etc.,.) it takes me to a “non existent page on the website” and says PAGE NOT FOUND. Can not modify settings!

  16. is there a way of keeping the ticker as it is, but turning off the highlighter which rolls over the top of the text making it more bold?, have taken off the background colour now just text on white bg then a bolder thicker text rolls up over the content text

    thank you

    • Hi Frankie,

      As a workaround for this issue I have set the delay to a certain value (lets say 10 sec (10000), which is fast enough for my text) and set the speed to 1ms. This way the visitor doesn’t see the highlighter moving, but only the end result, which works fine for me.

  18. Hello, I am pleased to find your plug in that does not cause website disruptions like many others. it has made my day very happy. I was wondering though if (or where) would I replace code to insert a constant radiant code for the ‘highlight’ section?

  19. Hello,
    I would like to give the editor access to the plugin im the dashboard.
    I found this line:

    if (is_admin())


    add_action(‘admin_menu’, ‘g_aths_add_to_menu’);

    How can I add the “editor”?
