  3. Hello;
    downloaded and installed RSS scroller per your instructions. Been working fine for about 60 days now. Suddenly I get these errors (see below) even though I made no changes to my blog, didn’t install any additional plugins.

  9. Hi, I had no problems installing this module but it will not show a feed. The default feed address or any other address I input. The module is showing up on my page but that’s all I get, I am running J1.7 – Server 2003 – PHP 5.3.6 and latest version of you module. Because I am running a windows server I quite often run into folder/file write permissions….could this be the problem?…….many thanks

    • Ok I found the problem……….incompatibility with new browsers.
      Firefox 5 = not working
      IE 9 = Compatibility mode only
      Chrome = not working
      Opera = not working

      Dude, I do not mean to be rude ok but this module is quite new, did you not check for browser compatibility…..real shame it does not work

  10. Hi

    I really liked this RSS scroller and it definitely used to work really well. However now it only displays the ‘undefined’ error which is usually a sign of the feed not being available.

    But the feed is definitely available. The problem is intermittent.

    I am using it to display the sites own feed not an external RSS so I’m not sure if this is part of the problem?

    Latest version of plugin and WP installed.

    Anybody else having this problem?

  11. Hi

    I’m new to this and hopefully i’m asking a simple/silly question.

    Is possible to disable linking on the ticker? Or even link to one of my own pages.

    Regards Simon.

  12. Thanks for the nice plugin which I am using to pull in local news headlines to my website. It would be nice though to be able to include more than one RSS feed and then show the news items in order of newest first.

    Just a suggestion :0)

  13. Hi,

    I think your RSS widgets needs more improvements like:
    1. Add multi RSS address in the same widgets
    2. Add the Filtering feature to receive the preferable news only
    3. Add the Cache feature to accelerate the time update time.
