    Really nice plugin, very easy to implement, and good message handling!

    I have 2 feature requests:
    1. option for continuous scroll (ie. no break between end of final message and beginning of first message)
    2. option to hide the content until page loads (otherwise message appears on screen, then disappears, then begins to scroll in – would be nice if it could just be blank, then begin to scroll, or if it could appear, and then begin to scroll from where it is, rather than starting from empty).

    • Admin
      August 9, 2010 at 4:12 pm #

        nice plugin,

        could you please tell whether feature nr.1 was implemented in last release or not?
        maybe it can be done manually?

        thanks.

  6. Martin

    Nevermind, you can just use HTML ;-)
    But what about configuring the spacer (currently “-”)?

  7. Paul
    September 1, 2010 at 4:42 pm #

    Suggested feature: links in ticker, plus ability to change link colors; also ability to ‘wrap around’ ticker so that it’s continuous

      September 16, 2010 at 5:10 pm #

      Yes, just open the main php page and search.

    Nice one!! Thanks a lot.

    …and of course: no praise without a feature request, *lol*

    Any way to have a delay between the messages, e.g. like having the one message scroll completely off the screen before starting the next one. Currently they are quite glued together.

      April 11, 2013 at 5:24 pm #

  11. Rotem Ayalon
    September 23, 2010 at 2:44 pm #

    No break between last and first message please!
    it’s critical functionality.
    also being able to set the size (left to right) of the scrolling area.

    Hey, I’m checking out your plug in. I must have something configured wrong. I have a series of 4 messages, but instead of displaying each message sequentially, it displays all four of them vertically, at the same time. I already tried using the break tag. No dice. What did I break?

    Here’s a screen cap so you know what I’m talking about:

    Hi,
    Why not make it work with qtranslate for multi-lingual site?

    I think, everyone will enjoy it.

    Any way, thanks for your plugin.

    December 20, 2010 at 6:57 am #

    I modify your code to make it well display with qtranslate, see at: http://osify.com/2010/12/20/multilingual-with-horizontal-scrolling-announcement-wordpress-plugin-with-qtranslate/

  21. Rafe
    December 21, 2010 at 1:15 pm #

    Would be good if when there are no messages defined, the plugin output no HTML at all.

    This way I can use the plugin for special messages only. When I don’t have any special messages, the site will look like normal.

  22. Rafe
    December 21, 2010 at 1:34 pm #

    Note that I fixed this myself by changing the last line of

    function horizontal_scrolling_announcement()

    to read:

    if ($cnt!=0) echo $what_marquee;

  23. Omer
    December 22, 2010 at 7:14 am #

    For some reason the messages wont loop. strange.
    Also, I second Rafe. an option to show the message only if there is a new msg would be great.

  24. Samora
    January 5, 2011 at 11:58 am #

    Guys why can’t you just add “-” to the end of each announcement as part of the text? I think it should do the trick

  25. Dave
    January 30, 2011 at 8:57 pm #

    I inserted links and it made the text Italics. How do I remove that?

  26. Rafe
    February 21, 2011 at 2:45 pm #

    Would be good if for each message, you could specify a URL. Then if the user clicks on that message, they go to that URL

    February 25, 2011 at 7:11 am #

    A few people have already mentioned it, but definitely adding a URL field for each piece of news would be helpful.

    Sure it’s easy to add the link via HTML, but I use WordPress as a CMS for a lot of clients who wouldn’t have a clue how to do that.

          Hi — had the same issue and followed the suggestion here to change the permissions on the plugin to moderate_comments instead:

          http://wordpress.org/support/topic/making-certain-admin-rolesdashboard-menu-items-accessible-to-editors

          This gives editor role access to only this plugin in the settings menu without giving them admin access. Code to change is the manage_options in the function HSA_add_to_menu() function.

            September 6, 2011 at 7:53 pm #

    Hey Gopy, great plugin…

    May I suggest you add a class or id name to the div (my line 48 of the php file reads now
    $what_marquee = $what_marquee . “”;
    )

    That will allow for updates not overwriting css customizations, because css can be maintain separated.

    Hi.

    Horizontal Scroll is a vital part of clients website.
    It’s essential that editors are able to access this plugin.
    Is it do-able? Would be great if it is.

    I’ve had Admin Menu Editor to control what editors have access to, but for some unknown reason, that plugin has rolled over & died, its causing me headaches.

    Thanks

    is it possible to change the rights of editing from ADMIN-level down to EDITOR-level???

    I’m a admin of a website and an editor should change this text-ticker … but I don’t want to give him ADMIN-rights. The Editor just can change pages in the WordPress-blog.

    So is this possible? Can I change this by my own?

    I have just installed your plugin (Horizontal Scrolling Announcement). It’s great, just one thing annoys me, namely it does not pass W3C validation, showing errors, like …there is no attribute “scrollamount”, “style”, “scrolldelay” etc.

    Any advise on how to fix?

    Best,

    Kashan

    I have found where is the problem. WP 3.2.1 + plugin 4.0 doesn’t work with Google Chrome. With Firefox is ok. The previous version of Horizzontal scrolling was ok with Google Chrome…..

      I tested the problem more. I have reinstalled 3.0 version but with Google Chrome it doesn’t work (OK with IE7 and Firefox). So i think that the problem is Horizzontal scrolling (any version) working with WP 3.2.1(I use twentyten theme) because 1 month ago, before updating WP, everything was ok with Google Chrome too

    I love your plugin, it’s excellent. Please take a look at it on http://www.redwater.org.au, you will see it’s a little train pulling the announcement. Can you tell me how to move the words up a little so they are level with the image, so that it really looks like the train is pulling them?
    Thanks heaps and God bless you for making all your plugins available to us.

    Big Thank You!! all of your plug-ins are wonderful and fairly easy to use by us tech challenge. I am having fun checking out different ones, anyhow, is it possible to have this scroller on different pages with differnt messages or images, does it permit image use?
    Also, to donate does it matter which plugin page I use or just donate/ Your work and from what I can see prompt replies are great!

    REALLY great plugin that does just what I was looking for. Only problems are than my text isn’t wrapping, so I have half a work on one line and the rest of the work on the next. I also agree with others that there NEEDS to be the ability to easily add links within the announcement. I want viewers to be able to click on either the entire announcement, or words within the announcement, to take them to outside links.

    Thanks, great plugging, 80% of what I am looking for.

    It would be great if you could set the scroll area. Currently it scrolls the entire width of the screen but my theme is smaller. I’d like to configure it to scroll in my heading not the screen size, if that makes sense

    Also it doesn’t seem to respect the font size or colour when configured. Its always black.

    But great stuff.

    I tried deactivating/reactivating as was suggested, but that is not working either. Please help if you can. This blog is laucnhing on Monday and I am desperate.

    Question – I have black background – on my header – I use this settings for my scrolling ticker news color:#fae820;font:Arial;font-size:140%; but when I put link my text is dark – How to change that setting for link colour?

    Few suggestions

    1. I have several ticker news daily – it will be interesting to implement next things WHICH WILL make this plugin much more interesting

    • Permanent news with option to show them at the beginning or at the end of scroll
    • All others – with time limit to be visible – with option to chose number of days for which ticker news will be visible – after that they will be archived but not deleted – That option will be general for all not permanent news
    • Opportunity to move (mouse) ticker news in content management up or down interactively which mean not by choosing numbers but simply move news by mouse – that will be much more easy to change news position
    • New part for archived news

    2. Because I have lots of news daily and last must be showed first I use trick and I start publishing news giving them the numbers back – 999,998,997,996 and …. counting – but that mean lots of changing – and time limit for news will be very useful option After for instance 14 days news will be hidden but not deleted – and by using mouse I can create news and simple put them by mouse on first position

    3. I am using code in my php to show my ticker news – It will be very nice to allow possibility to show for instance – Breaking news on place where news is starting to show

    Thanks in advance

    This is a very useful plugin. I have a suggestion to make it even better. If you can have the announcements scroll continuously – what i mean is, instead of waiting for the last announcement to get all the way to the end of the page before the first announcement begins again from the other side, it would be nice to have the first announcement start scrolling right behind the last one, repeating like a continuous loop. This is how a real news ticker works. If you could find out how to code it, that would be awesome! thanks for a great plugin

    So I am working with this one site that I have installed the horizontal scolling announcement into. I noticed that when in categories it doesnt refresh the screen when adding and I also get an error when trying to delete. It does end up adding and deleting it but you have to refresh the screen manually to get it to work. So I disabled the plugin and sure enough the categories piece begins to work again.

    In the source code the only thing I notice is that when the plugin is enabled it puts spaces before the doctype. and when the plugin is disabled those spaces are not there. So that tells me that the plugin in some manner is putting the spaces in the admin area. Any guidance on how to accomplish this please let me know.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

            Saw your website and there is no issue on the plugin. the space is because of your menu margin.

            To solve the issue, Open your “style.css” file from your theme folder. and go to #menu CSS. and update the margin value. this changes will reduce the bottom margin of your menu.

            From “margin: 25px 0 25px;” To “margin: 25px 0 0;”

            Note: This is completely irrelevant to this plug-in. please contact your theme designer for more details.

The plug in shows on the website as the name “Announcement” in a green box but no animation and no message. Our IT person is stumped. We have spent hours trying to figure out what is wrong.

    Hi,

    Great plugin, however, one thing I am simply wanting to do is scroll a list of previous clients and your plugin is the only thing that comes close to what I am wanting to do. Is there any way I can remove the link off of the item that scrolls. I am not able to leave the link box empty and simply have put a # in place to satisfy the system.

    I have tried to put in the CSS line text-decoration:none but had no luck with that.

    Thanks

    Hi there,
    Great plugin first of all.
    Can you have a delay between each message?
    I know there are mini breaks, but was just wondering if you can have it where your first message plays and once that has scrolled off across the screen, the next message starts and so on. Hope that makes sense.
    Thanks,
    Dan

    Hi,
    How can I change the message, please ?
    I searched all the plugin’s files and I found only one place with the default message (file : horizontal-scrolling-announcement.php, string : $sSql = $sSql . “VALUES (‘This is…..) ). So, I change it slightly but although there isn’t anywhere the old message I continue to see it !
    Even with another PC I see the default message !
    Please help me !

    Hi, the place holder is not rendering the scroller on my site, I have wp 3.5. and Horizontal scrolling announcement 6.2 I get it to render when I add the PHP to my template, but I do not want it on every page, just on my home page.

    Can you help me?

    Hi, First I would like to say, great plugin. The horizontal scrolling works perfectly on my site when viewed using Google Chrome, Mozilla or Opera. When viewed with Internet Explorer instead of scrolling on one continual line it shows 3 lines and it looks strange.

    Is there anything that I can do to fix this?

    Hi, firstly, I am very thankful for this plugin, truly enjoyed it. However, now that I updated WP to 3.5, I found that it doesn’t work anymore when I’m using IE (nothing shows up). When I use safari on my ipad, it does. I’m using horizontal scrolling announcement 6.2. I have not yet to have a chance to see if it works on google chrome or other browsers. I’ve also tried to see if deactivating and reactivating would work, but it didn’t. I’m wondering if there’s any way to fix this? Thank you so much!

      Figured it out, here’s for others:

      WordPress uses this format:

      add_menu_page( $page_title, $menu_title, $capability, $menu_slug, $function, $icon_url, $position );

      I changed line 304 in the php file to:
      add_options_page(‘Horizontal scrolling announcement’, ‘Horizontal Scrolling’, ‘publish_pages’, __FILE__, ‘HSA_admin_options’ );

    I’d like to offer suggestion in a future patch for a rare problem that can pop up. In one website I’ve worked on there was a change of the default directory ‘wp-content’. This causes an issue where a JavaScript file won’t load in the admin site.

    In the file ‘horizontal-scrolling-announcement/horizontal-scrolling-announcement.php’ I would suggest the change of the line (around 215) from

    <script language="JavaScript" src="/wp-content/plugins/horizontal-scrolling-announcement/horizontal-scrolling-announcement.js”>

    to

    <script language="JavaScript" src="/horizontal-scrolling-announcement/horizontal-scrolling-announcement.js”>

    The main change is from the static “/wp-content/plugins” to the dynamic “” getting the plugins directory from WordPress rather than having it statically set.

    Thanks for this plugin!

    This plugin IS BROKEN in IE v10. I have 6 items to scroll. It doesn’t matter whether I put them in as separate items or put them in one single item, the scrolling widget shows 8 lines high for the width of the widget area. UGLY! In Chrome, Firefox, Comodo or Safari, it shows properly as one continuously scrollinig line. I really like this scroller so any suggestions would be appreciated

      Hi Maurice,

      I have tested the plugin in IE 10 and got the same issue, This is because of the widget CSS attribute “word-wrap: break-word;”

      To solve this issue, please remove this attribute “word-wrap: break-word;” from your widget CSS. This will not affect your other widgets.

      Thanks

    @Rachel
    I use the scroller in a text widget. I wrapped the short code in a and added the necessary style statements and even a clickable link. For example, this creates white font on a blue background:
    :
    [horizontal-scrolling]

  177. Maurice Green
    July 12, 2013 at 7:26 am #

    Sorry, but for some reason this forum won’t let me enter HTML code in the response, even when I wrap it in tags. I'll try substituting ( and ) instead of and see if that works.

    (div style="font-color:#FFFFFF;background-color:#196487;")(a href="http://paloaltoville.com/where-to-sign" target="_blank") [horizontal-scrolling](/a)(/div)

    BTW the link in my reply takes you to the website but the scroller is NOT working because it doesn't function in IE10 (see my comment below).
