Frequently asked questions
Q1. How can I add multiple RSS feeds in the same shortcode?
Right now we do not have this option. However, we will try this multiple-input option in the future plugin release.
Q2. Why my scrolling text is out of the range?
This is the continuous scroll, so we need to maintain the same height for each content, for that, you need to update/increase the admin property “Each scroller height in scroll”. so that, the scroll will be smoother.
Q3. Can I change the scroll direction from vertical to horizontal?
No, at present option is not available in this plugin. However, we have an alternate plugin on this website to scroll horizontally. Please check the plugin list. Horizontal scrolling announcement this plugin creates the marquee.
Q4. What is “Display number of record at the same time in scroll”?
This property is to set the no of records to display(in the front end) at the same time in the scroller. For example, if you enter three. 3 titles will display on the front end at the same time.
Q5. What is “Enter max character for each post/title”?
This option is to display the number of characters for each RSS title on the scroll. For example, if you enter 100. The first 100 characters of the RSS title will show on this scroll.
Q6. Why does my scroll 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”. This parameter will help us to make the scroll cleaner.
