    Hi there. Thanks for these awesome plugins! Curious if I can have the Vertical Recent Posts Scroller show the associated featured image (thumbnail) as well? Or were I can configure it to show excerpts and such. Thanks!

        Also having issues with it not showing if there is a slider on the site. The development site is at any ideas?

        I have your scroller implemented here on my homepage. It’s great and exactly what I want, however, I’m too am wanting this to slow down. Is this implemented yet? Is there a place to specify this in the .js or .php files?


    • Bill Canaday, 2010
      September 19, 2010 at 11:05 pm #

      Yeah … that would be VERY useful. Right now it scrolls past fast enough to distract from the page being viewed. If it could be slowed down to 5-10 seconds between changes my reader on a commercial site would see that other information is available, but not overlook the fact that I want them to call the company to schedule a service call.

      The link I gave is temporary only … good for about a week while I develop the site.

  7. Rico
    August 30, 2010 at 10:09 pm #

    Hy! You have the only recent posts plugin, which really displays lastly edited posts. But its hard to customize it, because the Title links are using templates main links css settings, instead of css which is oriented for sidebar widgets.
    I dont have enough kowledge to fix this…
    But yet another question is, ho to add a little image(for example red dot) before title?

  8. Rico
    August 30, 2010 at 10:20 pm #

    Here you can see what i mean: I stopped the scrolling also. Second widget from top is your recent posts plugin, which differs from other two linking widgets. May-be you can help me out somehow?

      September 5, 2010 at 5:29 am #

      At present we don’t have option to display post thumbnail, i ll try this in the next version.
      its very hard to include thumbnail in the scroll , bcos all image size should be in the same size then only it ll scroll smoothly.

      • Farid
        June 3, 2012 at 6:08 am #

        Dear Gopi,

        I have some opinion about this great plugins, like:-
        1. Title, Post thumbnails, Date, Author, Content excerpt with read more.
        2. General user can change these value by clicking check-box in option area.
        3. .Make a drop-down box in widget area, by this user can select which category they want to scroll.

        Don’t worry about image size while scrolling, i think image size should be same when it scrolling.

        If need any volunteer service, please don’t hesitate to knock me.

    Oh and be able to change the width and scroll delay.


    • Kdari Web Development
      March 11, 2011 at 9:28 pm #

      Oh, and the width is controlled by the sidebar whose width is controlled by the themes CSS file. We could also help with that, but it would be illogical to build something that changes the width of the side into a plugin as it would affect every other widget in the sidebar. You either want to do that with care, or not at all unless you do CSS regularly.

    November 11, 2010 at 6:16 pm #

    Same issue as sgscalese, Bill Canaday, 2010 and vladimir prieto, whenever the widget is put in place all of my internal links stop working. Would love to get this sorted as well as being able to change the speed of the scroll.

    Hope to be able to reuse it soon.

    Hi Gopi,

    Cool plugin. It’s only missing one thing, in my opinion: being able to display a little excerpt of the post body, and ideally with an option in the control panel for how many words/characters to display.

    If you have input on how to get this done I would love to know.

    I was wandering, for some reason the scrolling effect on my site isn’t smooth like it is here on your site
    the scroller is on the right, under the calendar.
    i tried to change the hight of the box, the scrolling speed and the font size but no luck.
    another question, is it possible to add the expert or description part of the posts to show up too?
    something like your ‘Continuous announcement scroller’ plugin, only with posts.

      1. Open vertical-scroll-recent-post.php file
      2. go to Line 55
      3. you will see this line: $vsrp_post_title = substr($vsrp_post_title, 0, 130);
      4. change (130) to any characters you want it to display.

  50. Sharon
    July 24, 2011 at 11:33 am #

    I installed this plugin – but whenever this plugin is sets for the right sidebar – my pages disappear and it shows only my posts on main page. The function that suppose to pull the pages data is “have_posts” – and it seems to be empty. Does this plugin uses it? clear it in someway?
    It doesn’t happen when it sets for the left sidebar.
    What could be the problem?

    Hi –
    First of all, thank you for the (potentially) great plug in. I say ‘potentially’ because I also experience the problem of the posts replacing the main content on the page where the plugin is displayed in the sidebar.
    The scrolling and all of the functionality works but unfortunately the posts replacing the main content is a huge problem.
    I tried the ‘fix’ suggested by but that doe not fix it.
    Do you (or anyone) have a solution to this problem by any chance?

    Awesome plugin!

    Would love thumbnails of the first image from each post though, that’d really make it something special.

    Please make it possible to also EXCLUDE categories (by using the minus-sign “-“?), so that posts with that category don’t appear on the website page. It’s too much hassle to name all but one category to show…
    I need to exclude the category “Archive” !!
    Great plugin!
    Thank you!

    After activating this plugin it disappears from the available list of plugins at left side so that means it is not re-usable at any other place.

    Please confirm and also pls let me know how can it be re-used at different places e.g. Page Sidebar and Blog Sidebar, both.

    Any way to have the scroll direction reversed?

    So that the items scroll down the page instead of up?

    Love the plugins! Thanks for sharing them.

    Hello there,

    We have implemented your Vertical Scroller to our website:

    However when you hover over it to read the title it keeps scrolling. Is there a way to make it pause when mouse is hovered over the scroller?

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated or just automatically added in the next update.

    Thanks for the great plugin!

    April 19, 2012 at 7:03 am #

    Do you want to have also thumbnaiil in scroller?

    1. Go to scroll-post-excerpt.php
    2. Find row with code: $get_permalink = get_permalink($spe_data->ID);
    3. Add new row and write: $get_img = get_the_post_thumbnail($spe_data->ID);
    4. In the row find code starting with “$spe_x = $spe_x”….
    5. All this code replace with this:

    $spe_x = $spe_x . “spe_array[$spe_count] = ‘$spe_post_title$get_img$spe_dp_clean…'; “;

      April 19, 2012 at 7:05 am #

      $spe_x = $spe_x . "spe_array[$spe_count] = '$spe_post_title$get_img$spe_dp_clean...'; ";

    one issue i am finding, the scroll animation is a bit choppy. It moves the top text up about 3 px, then back down before changing. Seems like a JS setting that can be changed.

    can you advise?

    I am using your vertical scrolling plugin. See example here:

    How can I evenly space each of the posts so that they look neat when scrolling? Currently, some of the post titles only require 3 rows, while others 5 rows. This results in looking uneven when scrolling. How can I fix this?

    I really need some help figuring out how to get the plugin to work according to the following:

    I have a wordpress mult-site. My client will post new events on the blog of the main site I am using a plugin called which pulls the posts from the main blog and posts them in the other sites on the network.

    Then I use the Vertical Scroll Recent Posts plugin to show these events in the widget area. However, the plugin only pulls in the recent posts one time. If I need to delete or edit an existing post from the main site, it doesn’t update on the other sites.

    How can I get this to work so that if I edit a post or delete it, it will update?

    Great work on this!
    As a lot of people were asking about adding the featured image, but not really giving full answers/explanations, I thought I would post the full, modified spe_show function from the scroll-post-excerpt.php file.
    This mods include: a linked, left floated featured image that is sized to 38px by 38px.

    function spe_show()
    global $wpdb;
    $spe_html = “”;
    $spe_x = “”;
    $num_user = get_option(‘spe_select_num_user’);
    $dis_num_user = get_option(‘spe_dis_num_user’);

    $dis_num_height = get_option(‘spe_dis_num_height’);
    $spe_select_categories = get_option(‘spe_select_categories’);
    $spe_select_orderby = get_option(‘spe_select_orderby’);
    $spe_select_order = get_option(‘spe_select_order’);
    $spe_excerpt_length = get_option(‘spe_excerpt_length’);

    $num_user = 5;
    $dis_num_height = 30;
    $dis_num_user = 5;
    $spe_excerpt_length = 150;

    $spe_data = query_posts(‘cat=’.$spe_select_categories.’&orderby=’.$spe_select_orderby.’&order=’.$spe_select_order.’&showposts=’.$num_user);

    if ( ! empty($spe_data) )
    $spe_count = 0;
    foreach ( $spe_data as $spe_data )
    $spe_post_title = trim($spe_data->post_title);
    $spe_post_title = mysql_real_escape_string($spe_post_title);

    $get_permalink = get_permalink($spe_data->ID);
    $get_img = get_the_post_thumbnail($spe_data->ID, array(38,38) );

    $spe_dp_clean = spe_dp_clean($spe_data->post_content, @$spe_excerpt_length);
    $spe_dp_clean = mysql_real_escape_string($spe_dp_clean);

    $dis_height = $dis_num_height.”px”;
    $spe_html = $spe_html . “”;
    $spe_html = $spe_html . “$spe_post_title“;
    $spe_html = $spe_html . “$spe_dp_clean…”;
    $spe_html = $spe_html . “”;

    $spe_x = $spe_x . “spe_array[$spe_count] = ‘$spe_post_title$get_img $spe_dp_clean…'; “;

    $dis_num_height = $dis_num_height + 4;
    if($spe_count >= $dis_num_user)
    $spe_count = $dis_num_user;
    $spe_height = ($dis_num_height * $dis_num_user);
    $spe_count = $spe_count;
    $spe_height = ($spe_count*$dis_num_height);
    $spe_height1 = $dis_num_height.”px”;

    <div style="text-align:left;vertical-align:middle;text-decoration: none;overflow: hidden; position: relative; margin-left: 1px; height: ;” id=”spe_Holder”>

    var spe_array = new Array();
    var spe_obj = ”;
    var spe_scrollPos = ”;
    var spe_numScrolls = ”;
    var spe_heightOfElm = ”; // Height of each element (px)
    var spe_numberOfElm = ”;
    var spe_scrollOn = ‘true';
    function spe_createscroll()

    spe_obj = document.getElementById(‘spe_Holder’); = (spe_numberOfElm * spe_heightOfElm) + ‘px'; // Set height of DIV


    echo "No data available!”;
