  1. Hello, and thanx for releasing this plugin for free 🙂

    One question: can it be possible to add one (other) widget – let’s say, ‘recent comments’ or ‘latest posts’ – inside your plugin container, in order to make a scrollabler text? In other words, a piece of code?

    (sorry for my english)

  2. Oh, sorry, this is my first coffee of this day, i’m a little dizzy !! I’ve just your others plugins – exactly what i want!
    You make my day 🙂 thanks man.

  3. Its very simple, just add your HTML content directly in the text box.

    Example :

    This is simply dummy announcement text. Update this in text management page.

    • how do i put text into html format there is no way to change color other that trying to cut paste from a word doc but that didnt change the color what am i missing also is ther there a stop feature during scroll over to allow reader more time to read can you slow down or speed up the scroll? thank you

  4. Hi,

    I’m looking for a plug in that will offer up to 10 lines of text, that will appear one by one and then scroll downwards continually. This will need to appear over a graphic on the homepage only. I can’t therefore enter into the php file on the header. I have very little knowledge of html so any help would really be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.

  5. Hi there,

    Great plugin, its very simple and gets the job done.

    I’ve been playing a little bit in debug mode and have seen a number of warning messages pop upm which I do not know how to solve.

    Can you please assist?

  6. I have a family site and learning about wordpress. i love this plugin. Very simple to put on my blog for a person who does not know a lot about web codes. Thank you very much for sharing.

    • yes this is possible, in the plug-in js file find the line

      setTimeout(“cas_scroll();”, 10);

      setTimeout(“cas_scroll();”, 2000);

      and update that number to increase or decrease the speed of the scroll.

  7. is there a way to have the plugin show up with different content on pages independently? (i.e. on the widget side independently for each page)

    Meaning, can I have one scrolling message on Page #1 and another (different) scrolling message on Page #2 etc…. ?

    I would like to use it to display testimonials, but testimonials that are specific to each page.

  8. how can i edit the CSS of this ?
    i’m israeli and i want the text-align to be “right”.

    and i wuld like to add a border to the widget,
    is it possible ?

    i have seen that you use

    but when i write in my style.css
    .wrap {
    text-align:right;
    background:#f1e5f3;
    }

    it’s not doing nothing.

    thank you

  9. thanks a lot for the great plugin! there is one thing I’d really like to see in the future releases – a possibility to use language tags (i.e. [:en] or ) for multilingual blogs. check out my site – I have to put english text in bold and russian in italics. would be awesome if i could omit the unneeded language altogether.

    tipkin

  10. Hi. thank you for creating this plugin. I loaded it on the homepage of my website by means of a php executable plugin for php placed in posts or pages.

    In other words, I wrote [exec] cas(); ? [/exec] instead of

    At this point, I am only able to see the first announcement on the list. There is no scrolling. Is there anything that I am missing?

    Thanx in advance

    Ajen

  11. Helllo, thank you for creating this wonderfull plugin. Is it possible to add a option for turning the hyperlink on/off. On this moment you have to put a hyperlink but i don’t need that. It also change the layout of my text and pictures (i have a line under a hyperlink, so it doesn’t look great for me)

    It’s a suggestion, i hope you can help me..

    Thanks.

    Wienjo

  12. Dear Gopi,

    Many thanks! I think this is an extremely useful and elegantly designed plugin. I’m wondering whether it is possible to change the scrolling speed, to make it a bit slower.

    Thanks!

  13. Thank you for your plug in. I was wondering if there is a way of stopping the scrolling when the mouse is on the announcement to allow the reader more time to read it. Thanks for your time.

  14. Sorry for my English … your plugin is excellent. Just one problem: do not work for me locally with IE6 while on your site yes.
    Did you make a change? If so which one? Thank you in advance

  15. I’m trying this plugin for a simple scrolling list of names: a long column. I don’t need or want the link option, and in fact will need to turn it off because most or all of the names won’t have links.

    Can I do that with this plug in? or do I need to keep looking? Otherwise, it looks great!

  16. Yes I want to know about the link also – I was putting the link in with my text so I don’t know what to put in the link box – hopefully someone will respond shortly!

  17. Hello,
    I too am interested in removing the link requirement.

    For now, I’ve used # however, as we know, it still appears as a link to readers.

    Gopi, do you have any suggestions as to how we can edit the code so the scroll doesn’t require links?

    Thanks for a really slick, simple, versatile plugin.

    Respectfully -Barb

  18. Hi. The plugin is great. One question: Is it possible to shorten the amount of space between posts differently on a post by post basis? That would help since I have one post that is really long (and flows into the post after it) and one really short one (that has a big chunk of empty space below it). Any help is appreciated. Thanks. David.

    Find this “$cas_post_title” variable in the main plug-in php file(continuous-announcement-scroller.php) and add the target attribute for that anchor tage.”

    There are a bunch of these $cas_post_title” in the code….which one or ones do we add this to, and could you show me what the final code should look like for this snippet?

    Thanks

  20. I figured it out….for anyone else looking to open links in new windows, here’s where you add ‘target=blank’.

    In this file: (continuous-announcement-scroller.php):

    $cas_x = $cas_x . “cas_array[$cas_count] = ‘$cas_post_title‘; “;
    $cas_count++;

  21. Such a great plugin!

    I have two instalation of wordpress, in two different subdomains. Have installed thge plugin on one of the wordpress and typed in A LOT of announcements.

    Question: how can i copy the content (the announcements) to the other instalation too so i don’t need to type in all the announcements again?

    Is there a file which stores all the text i can copy in the plugin directory or smth like that?

    This question is also good for when backing up…

    Thanks!

  22. Nice, handy little widget.
    One little question –

    When anyone registers on the site they can see and easily edit the scroller.

    How can I disable this ?
    Thanks
    Tony

  23. Can the order be reversed? I am assuming I can decrement a variable in a loop (rather than incrementing), but I keep “breaking” it.

  24. Hello, your plugin – what I was searching, the only question is: How do so on the same page had two widgets with different announcements?
    Thanks, and forgive me for my english.

  25. Can someone please tell me the main difference between :

    Announcement and vertical scroll news

    and

    Continuous announcement scroller

    Thanks.

  26. Can someone please tell me the main difference between :

    Announcement and vertical scroll news

    Continuous announcement scroller

    and

    News Annoncement scrow

    Thanks.

    • Announcement and vertical scroll news & News announcement scroll both same plugin. the second 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.

  27. Thanks for the plugin.

    How can I enter a message without a link.

    After I enter the message, it requested “Please enter the link”

  28. Thanks for your help.

    In how to control the speed of the scroller text, you said this:

    yes this is possible, in the plug-in js file find the line
    setTimeout(“cas_scroll();”, 10);
    setTimeout(“cas_scroll();”, 2000);
    and update that number to increase or decrease the speed of the scroll

    Pls. in which order? do I need to change both 10 and 2000 to a lesser digit to decrese the speed? and should it be in the order of 10, 20, or can it be any digit number?

    Thanks once again.

    Samuel.

    • There are TWO timers running, the first with the smaller number determines how fast it scrolls up the screen. The value is in milliseconds and is currently set at 10. That means there is a 10 millisecond pause between each line slide. The second one is the pause it makes to read something after it scrolls to the next section. It is set at 2000 (2 seconds). The larger the number, the slower it will go.

      You have to increase these values to increase the pause and the speed of the scroll itself. I changed this to 20 and 3000 and it works beautifully now. Now it is true smooth scroll and does not “jump” like before… Its on the blog page of my site if you want to see this change in action.

      • sorry, what I meant was when you increase these values, the pause between scrolls, and the rate at which it scrolls will be SLOWER. So the higher the values, the slower the pause and scroll speed.

  29. Nice! It’s so onerous search out good high quality data on the web right now from educated sources, it’s all wannabe’s and reused content with only a few exceptions. I hope you keep up the good work and I most likely be back to read extra of your posts in the future!

  30. Great plugin dude. Just wish you could alter the speed and it didn’t appear as a link even if you use ‘#’.

  31. is there a way to have the plugin show up with different content on pages independently? (i.e. on the widget side independently for each page)

    Meaning, can I have one scrolling message on Page #1 and another (different) scrolling message on Page #2 etc…. ?

    I would like to use it to display testimonials, but testimonials that are specific to each page.

    • This is possible.. but u have to do some small code changes in the PHP file.. Just read the file URL based on the file url u retrieve the announcement from DB. Example in the website each page am displaying only one widget.

      • Gopi, can you explain theis in more detail please? I’d also like to display the scroller with different content on different pages. Can you share the php code we need to change please?

        thanks for the great plugins!

  32. Nice plugin. I need to available this plugin settings to editor user, but it is not available when I am login through editor user. Is there anyway to change this option?

  33. Is it possible to use this plugin/widget for an entire page? I want to set this up so that it will scroll the announcements for the entire page and not as a sidebar. This will be used on a large dontated HDTV to scroll school announcements. I know it probably is I just need to be shown how to accomplish it. Any takers?

  34. Can i put this News Scroller in a WP-Page, I have lots of page but i want to show in Only one page.Pls tell me how can i done this thing

  35. I know you answered this question above on Feb 16th but I’m fairly new to php. I can find the line where the ‘target=blank’ is to be inserted to but the code in the version I have is much longer than what is written in the Feb response. No matter where I put the target code I either get an error or the scrolling freezes. Can you please just write of the full line code so that I can just copy and paste in the new code and finally get it to work. This is a great plugin and is really a strong attraction on my website. Thanks

  36. Hi Gopi – I’m evaluating your plugin as I build a client site. I like a lot of things about it. But I need to use it in more than one type of sidebar on the site. When I drag it into a categories sidebar, for example, it is no longer available to slide into a pages or other sidebar. Is there a way to deploy it in multiple sidebars? Thanks for your help.

  37. Our site is running wordpress 3.1.3 and using the Continuous announcement scroller plugin and is working perfectly, except that I can’t add new content to the scroller. We already have 5 links, using order 1,5,6,7,8 (created by a previous administrator), but when I try after insert message do not get anything (using order 2,3, 9 without sucess.

    What could be the issue.

    Thanks.

  38. Just a suggestion. Background and timer options aren’t usually referenced in the description of these plugins. Maybe ‘Multiple Category Selection Widget’ plugin with cats for features can also help users here scout the right scroller : )

  39. Hi Gopi, two things now:
    1. Your plugin appears with no sidebar background or border, and I see no way to set a background or border. Please note that my theme has several ways to set a background or box, but not when the widget can’t be placed within a text widget. How do I accomplish this? The site: http://www.thomaswatsonconsulting.com/gosdentodd/raving-realtors
    2. any answer on my question from July 19?

    Thanks for any timely help you can provide.

    • Answer for July 19 Q : am check that option, at present problem is if we add more then 1 scroller in the same page it gets conflict.

      Answer for this Q : Try to add the HTML content in the announcement
      ex: if you want diff font color ,

      <DIV style=’background-color:#00ff00;’ >
      Your content here.
      </DIV>

  40. Just to say have been looking for a plugin that provides a news update for ages. Really appreciate it and will donate now.
    I would like to change the colour of the fonts but have no code experience. Any help many thanks

  41. Hi just installed RSS Scroller and it is brilliant! Spare one issue. I seem to be having trouble styling it. Been trying to give it a background image and it’s not playing game.

  42. Our site is running wordpress 3.1.3 and using the Continuous announcement scroller plugin and is working perfectly, except that I can’t add new content to the scroller. We have 5 links, using order 1,5,6,7,8 (created by a previous administrator), but when I try to insert a message don’t get anything (using order 2,3,4,9… I deleted one of the entries and still can’t add new content. Also check the settings and the Enter max number of record to scroll: is set to 20

    What could be the issue?

    Thanks.

  43. Thanks so much for this great plug in. I have it installed, formatted and running just fine. I would like to slow down the pace of the scroll. Can you provide some guidance on how to do this.

  44. Dear Admin first of all I am really thankful to you for this great plug in. I just have gone through all the comments and read the way to add a blank target but still unable to that with this tag “$cas_post_title”. If you don’t mind please give the correct syntax and where should I change it.

    Waiting for your reply

  45. Hi,

    First of all thanks for the great plugin.
    i have not the issue but requirement, i want to give privilege to editor to add delete and edit news as well as the administrator.

    hope u reply soon.

  46. Hi, I have used this on my other website however recently I wanted to use this on my current website and it shows up in firefox but cannot be seen in chrome or IE for some reason. What should I do? I have cleaned the browser cache and history and all that but nothing works.

  47. Like many I like the plugin but it goes too fast to be useful. I think I figured out how to slow it down.

    To slow down the scroll go into Plugins —> Editor and go to

    “continuous-announcement-scroller/continuous-announcement-scroller.js ”

    Last line says:

    “setTimeout(“cas_scroll();”, 2000);”

    I changed it to 4000 and it has slowed down to an acceptable speed.

    Good luck.

  48. can i manage the time delay between diffrent news??

    can i make the news stop when the visitor brings the cursor on the news and make the news moving again when visitor takes off the cursor from the news??

    reply me its urgent

    1. These plugins are an extraordinary collection – and I am so grateful that you are offering them to the public. Thank you!

    2. Criticism. references to the changing the colors in the continuous scroll text above. Oh gosh. Awful. I am a pretty smart guy and I am indeed more confused than ever. I know we may seem ungrateful for asking for coherent comments and responses (and documentation) from someone giving away such plugins for free! But really! You just keep repeating the cryptic “add html” to the text without EVER giving one example. Directing us to the demo on the right-side is NOT an example of HOW to do it.
    It is not straightforward. I personally have tried to add HTML to the lines in the ticker, and it does not always end up the way I would expect.
    so … are you adding code like message text or
    etc
    or something else.
    since there are several asking about this, why not merely post the text/code in the example …. so we can see for ourselves which syntax works best. Just paste in here … this is even easier than merely repeating “add html”,

  51. Hi,
    I am trying to remove the underlines on the words in scrolling text. I tried in the text box and “#” in the link box. But neither worked. Please help.

  52. Well done with regard to placing a proper practical website. Your websites isn’t mainly educational but additionally really aesthetic very. Right now there are usually extremely many individuals that can easily compose less than straightforward articles of which wonderfully. Keep outstanding composing !!

  53. Hi,

    I just installed this on the latest wp. I add the php code and so far the “scrolling” does not work. It would work only if I put the code both on the page and sidebar… Any, ideas? Is there a shortcode? like the one with your news announcement scroll? Thanks

  54. Thank you for the plugin…It’s the best I’ve seen for scrolling text and how I’d like to use it on my website.

    One question that I do not see answered above is:

    How do I remove the link underline? I’ve used the # suggestion in the link box, but can not figure out how to remove the underline.

    Thank you in advance!

  55. What if I didn’t sbrucbised to the newsletter and I check sbrucbised to newsletter? That will give me more points even if I don’t deserve them?

  56. I plan to use this to display 1 item at a time, it’s an entire paragraph for each item.. Is there a way to increase the time each item is displayed (I need more time to ready the entire paragraph)

    Thanks !

  57. Looks great but wordpress says it hasn’t been updated in over a year.. That’s way too long of a time to blindly trust that no exploits or vulnerabilities have arising during that time. womp womp womp

    • Ok, I found out to change the style, I just have to use inline CSS e.g. in the news message, BUT my problem now is I tried to enter:
      text-decoration:none; but that didn’t remove the underline and finally, how do I change the pseudo selector, I mean I don’t want it to be default purple when an item is visited, I want it to stay a certain color.

      Let me know 🙂

  58. Hi Gopi,
    Great po;ug ins we love them.
    Is it possible with the continuous scroller to adjust the time for the messages to stay on before scroll so longer messages are easier to read?
    thank you
    appreciate your answer

  59. This is an amazing plugin. Really appreciate it. Cheers developer! I have a query. When I hover at any of the message, the scrolling should stop. And again start scrolling as usual when I stop hovering. How can this be done? Thanks!

  60. Hi Gopi,

    Really like your widgets. I can’t seem to get the continuous announcement scroller to display the text. If you mouse over the In The News area. The text can be clicked on but it does not display. Any ideas on why this is happening? Thanks.

    Steve

  61. Not happy with the plugin at all! It seems all your plugins are nearly the same with a slight variation. What I would like to know is that isn’t it suppose to be ‘continuous’ ??but instead it ‘stops’ and it doesn’t even support ‘onmouseover’. I checked out a number of your plugins to find a continuously scrolling news one but no luck. I have already deactivated and looking for an alternative. but for your reference and future do consider these few things:

    1) It should be ‘continuous’
    2) Should have mouseover stop property
    3) Should have more control such as controlling speed

    • Thanks for your comment, this plugin don’t have onmouseover stop option. you can try my news-announcement-scroll plugin.

      • Thank you for your reply. Yes I tried news-announcement-scroll plugin as well but it is almost same as this ‘continuous scroller’ plugin. The only difference I noticed is speed. I was looking for more of something along the 3 features I mentioned in my earlier comment but none of your plugins (I have tried nearly all of them) seems to offer them. So unfortunately I am looking for an alternative. But I must appreciate your efforts and keep up the good work.

  62. Very pleased with the popup, except sometimes when you change the content, and close wordpress it doen’t update en keeps the old data.

    Is there a solution for this ?

    Am i missing somethong here ?

  63. hi there thank you for the plugin, i was wondering why does the widget disappear once used in one sidebar. i have unlimited sidebars in my website and i was disappointed when i saw that the widget can be only used once in one sidebar and not in many sidebars. i hope im making sense.

    am i missing anything ? is there a way the widget can be used in multiple sidebars?

    Thank you

    SAM

  64. keep in mind im only looking to have the widget in different pages. im not looking to have it different places on one page. just different sidebars on different pages

  65. urgent : i want to add this plug in to right side of the template of my site , plz give me replay quickly , alreday i used this code but its display right side of the template only thanks in advance

  66. Hello

    First I want to congratulate you and thank you for this wonderful plugin. I tested it and it works perfectly. My problem is that I use the theme “ieducation” that comes with its own Widgets. I want to move the scroll at the top of the page (Widgets) that I have to touch the code (File: sidebar.php) and I need the code to insert. Thank you in advance

  67. Thanks Gopi for the wonderful plugin,

    is there a way I can increase number of links to appear in the scroller, currently its 3 links at a time also how can i increase the size of the block.

  68. Hi,

    I am using Continuous Announcement Scroller and it works quite well. But I have a question.

    When you click on a hyperlink it takes you straight out of the website. Is there a way to open the link in another tab instead?

    Thanks,

    John

  69. Hi,
    Please show me demo how to chant tex color of content of news….all say for this but i can’t do .. tell me cleare how to change like yr main demo….
    thx
