Frequently asked questions

Q1. Can I add more then one RSS feed at same time?

No, You can add only one RSS url at a time.

Q2. Why my news content out of range?

This is the continuous scroll, so we need to maintain the same height for the content, for that you need to update the admin property “Each scroller height in scroll”.

Q3. Can I change the scroll manner from vertical to horizontal?

No, at present option not available.

Q4. What is “Display number of record at the same time in scroll”?

This property is to set the no of record to display(in front end) at the same time.

Q5. What is “Enter max character for each post/title”?

This is to fix the no of character for each post.

Q6. Why my news content overlap each other?

This is the continuous scroll, so we need to maintain the same height for the content, for that you need to update the admin property “Each scroller height in scroll”.

  1. This plug in is very close to what I was looking for. Do yu have any plans to include options for 1) slowing the feed rotation speed, and 2) showing the item summary (description) content?

    Thanks!

    • Mariana: in continuous-rss-scrolling.js in the plug-in folder change

      // start scrolling
      setTimeout(“crs_scroll();”, 2000);

      to (for example)

      // start scrolling
      setTimeout(“crs_scroll();”, 8000);

      to slow down the scrolling

  2. Is there a way to add more than one news feed?
    Is there a way to open the link in a new tab/window?

    Other than that its a great widget!

    • I tried this and for some reason it won’t show anything on the feed. Am I missing a step. It works fine if I just use one of the individual feeds.

      • I am trying to do the same thing but cant get it to show any data.

        I tried rssmix.com and also tried the google reader published feed. This consolidates many feeds into one output, but again this widget displays nothing, even with the google folder set to PUBLIC.

        Help!

  3. Like this widget started using it would be nice to have a option to open the links in a new window ?

    Still searching for the code 🙂

  4. Hi All, Please check the new version of this plug-in “3.0”. two new feature.
    1. Only admin use can access this plug-in via admin –> setting tab
    2. Links will open in the new window

  5. Hi there,
    i installed this plug in, but suddenly it takes a huge amount of time to load slowing down the loading of the entire site.
    I upgraded to version 3 but the delay still occurs.
    RSS loads rapidly on rss readers but the plugin takes more than 10 seconds to load.

  6. Thank you for the update, but I don’t want the links to open in a new window! I am using this to highlight a RSS feed of one of the categories on my own blog. I want links to open in the same window.

    Is it possible to make this an option rather than making all the links open in new windows by default?

    Thank you for the great plugin!

    Michelle

  9. I’m having a problems recently with the item title not showing on the scroll. There is an arrow on the left which should point to the product name but it is blank. However, when I click on the arrow, it links to the product. How do I get the title to show beside the arrows? I now have gaps everywhere on the scroll! Many thanks in advance.

  16. The RSS feed I would like to show on my home page using CRS includes some CDATA sections. The links for these entries are not formulated correctly resulting in a 404 error. I am using version 4.0 of CRS and I’m sure it worked correctly with the previous version. The RSS feed is http://ourmaritimeties.com/tng/tngrss.php. Is there a fix for this or can I get a copy of the previous version (new to WP and only had a copy in the WP content folder).
    TIA, Arthur

  17. Hi, thanks for the nice plugin!

    It would be awesome if the following was included:
    – Possibility to add several rss feeds
    – Possibility to show images/thumbnails from rss feeds
    – Possibility to add the rss feeds into post/pages etc. with shortcodes

    I have been looking desperately for a plugin that can do the things I mentioned above, but there is no one so far!

  18. For what it is worth the following line was commented out in my copy. Had to uncomment to start scroilling.

    <script type="text/javascript" src="/wp-content/plugins/continuous-rss-scrolling/continuous-rss-scrolling.js”>

  21. Hi my family member! I want to say that this post is awesome, nice written and come with approximately all important infos. I would like to see more posts like this .

  22. Hi Gopi,

    I have downloaded this plugin and it is a nice plugin. However is there any way to change the font color of the scrolling text. I am asking this since i hv put this in the footer and my footer is black…so the text is very light.
    Pls let me know if there is any way to do this. I would like Yellow color for the scrolling text.

    My website is http://www.vandanam.com

    Thanks,
    Sajeev

  23. Hi there,

    I just installed the plugin but am having problems feeding one particular RSS Feed’s URL. The plugin isnt showing any errors and appears to have allocated the right amount of space to display the feed headings, but it is just blank. Here’s the URL Im trying to feed – any ideas? http://www.bitronlubricants.com/support/rss/index.php?/News/Feed

    I have tried the built in WordPress RSS widget using the same link to the above RSS Feed and it works fine – but I really like the scrolling idea and want to get it working.

    If you can help that would be great

    Cheers,

    Kev

      • I’ve tried other rss feeds from other blogs and they work perfectly. The rss link I posted above is not working using this particular plugin. The link works with the built in RSS widget in wordpress (non scrolling) but with this particular plugin it just appears blank. I’ve tried the basics that I know of to get it going but so far no luck. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks Kev

  24. My designer has used your plugin. Is it possible for the scroll not to stop and just run very slowly? Regarding actual scroll, what exactly is variable? Speed, time stopped, etc. Thanks.

  25. Hello, great script, but really want to limit news to say last 2 months instead of it scrolling old old news.

    How do I limit news from just 2 months???

  26. Hi Gopi,

    What is the news scroller – rss / self content, you recommend for use within the body content of a website rather than the sidebar. Thanks

  27. How can i add a … read more after the crs_content(); – I tried to make my own $read_more variable and do a crs_content($read_more) but it doesnt seem to work? Any Ideas?

  28. Security – use curl instead of fopen.

    Hello, my ISP has disabled the use of fopen in php scripts for security reasons. They suggest using curl instead. Is this something that you can / should do?

    Thank you,

    Roger

    • I got it to work myself. Others may want to make the same change if their ISP blocks fopen. I it very easy to do.

      edit: continuous-rss-scrolling/continuous-rss-scrolling.php

      Near line 52:
      $data = curl_init();
      curl_setopt($data, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);
      curl_setopt($data, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
      curl_setopt($data, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 60);
      $xml = curl_exec($data);
      curl_close($data);
      // $f = fopen( $url, ‘r’ );
      // while( $data = fread( $f, 4096 ) ) { $xml .= $data; }
      // fclose( $f );

      For non-developers, the lines with the // in front of them is the original code. the // comments those lines. The new code is everything above that.

  30. Thanks for developing this plug-in.
    I’m wondering if there’s some sort of way to allow 2 separate feeds, each in it’s own widget. I’ve attempted to do this myself by uploading a slightly modified instance of this plug-in (renamed crs declarations to crs2, and the widget declaration) I’ve gotten that far to where I have the 2nd widget displaying the feed, but it’s not moving. There’s apparently a .js conflict – can this really not be done?

  31. if i’ve just signed up but I actually would like to see a specific letter (Lorelei Lee’s) is there some place i can possibly look at it or obtain a copy somehow?
