      2 Questions:
      Is there a setting for the ‘Information Reel’ to only display on specific pages of your website, or do you have to have it be displayed on all of your web pages?
      Also, what is recommended pixel dimensions for the image url so the picture doesn’t show to big or to small?
      Thank you.

    Hi:

    Like the ease of install and concept. Having a difficult time with the final piece to the puzzle. How to reference the announcements? Your step-by-step instructions stop after install. I assume it is the Fallery Group but am not sure how to configure.

    hello, I like this plugin so much, I would like to use in my site, but I would like to know if is possible to use unlimited number of times in widgets.

    I would like to use like a small shop. Some shop in my site (post) show their products. So 1 information Reel for 1 post..

    If is possible, can you tell me how??
    thanks in advance

      • ofrou
        May 11, 2011 at 8:36 am #

        In my case I do not need to implement it. I only need to be able to use it as many times as I want in widgets, for example, TEXT widget can be use as many times as you want.

        understand what I mean? sorry, my English is very bad. Thanks for your quick response

        • Admin
          May 11, 2011 at 8:45 am #

          No We can use only once. But i have plane to create option to display different different set of images in the each page.

          Example

          Home : One set of images
          Post page : one set of images
          WordPress pages: one set of image
          Search Page : one set of images.

            This is an absolutely wonderful plugin! Thanks for your work. I thought I had found the PERFECT solution for recommended books on my blog, but, like the user above, I need to be able to create separate instances in multiple widgets so I can have separate lists in each category.

            This seems to be a glaringly obvious feature that would be wonderful to have in future versions. I hope you’re able to include this soon. I would love to be able to use this plugin.

            Thanks again for the great plugins!

  26. Bright Tribe
    May 12, 2011 at 7:01 am #

    Just my 2cents…

    Having a different set of images for Posts, Pages and the Search Page is hardly an upgrade in functionality and doesn’t add any real value at all. If anyone needs to use multiple instances of this plugin it will be to add it to multiple widgets. I would be more than happy to support / donate for this plugin if it had this functionality.

    Surely a JavaScript error like this can be remedied! :) This is really a fantastic plugin, it would be a shame not to partner with someone who is able to help you with this conflict to take this to the next level. I do hope you’re able to find a solution to this issue.

    • wesman
      June 1, 2011 at 8:57 pm #

      Under Plugins > Editor in the Dashboard, ensure that you’re editing the CAS plugin, and navigate to the second file from the top in the right column (should be a .js file). At the bottom of this file there is a JavaScript statement that tells the plugin how much time (in milliseconds, set as default to ’2000) it spends on each slide. Change this ’2000′ number to whatever time span you want.

      June 10, 2011 at 1:03 am #

      Hi DoK,

      I got frustrated not being able to have multiple instances of this plugin so I actually paid to have one built exactly like it – that you can use an unlimited number of times! :) I’d be happy to share it with you if you’d like to use it. We made some improvements to it as well. There are a few more things I’d like to clean up, but it works great and allows you to have multiple instances with different groups. Feel free to drop me a note at brighttribestuff@gmail.com.

    As each message nears the top of the scroll area it stops and then jumps slightly to the top. Is there a way to make this work more smoothly? It would look much nicer.

    Also can you tell me what the settings _blank, _parent, _self, _new are for. It doesn’t seem to make any difference which one I use.

    I really loved the look of this plugin, but we found by exhaustive trial and error that on our moderately busy site (600,000 page views a month) that it just killed the CPU and RAM. RAM would max out completely, while the last attempt to give this plugin a chance ended with load averages of an astonishing 282. Have any other users reported memory / CPU issues?

    hello Gopi,
    I’m trying to use this plug-in. Prime Minister install it, I have dragged on the widget on the sidebar. But I am not able to change the settings because when I’m clicking on the small Triangle (similar to drop down arrow) in front of the plug-in name in the sidebar, nothing happens.

    I am using Windows XP, Firefox 5 to access my WordPress page.

    Please guide me to make this work. In case you need any other information from my side then please let me know

    However in those settings, it’s not asking/telling/giving the options for the source of entries. So I’m not getting how to change the scrolling content to my content.

    Hello! Love the plugin. Thanks! FYI, It doesn’t appear that the _blank option is working. Your default examples don’t work on my site with this setting and mine don’t work either… the link opens in the same tab in IE9. Do you know how to fix this? Thanks!!!

    Hiya – Just been back to my WordPress dashboard to find that there is an upgrade to Information Reel from 2.0 (as installed) to 4.0. Naturally I wanted to know what had changed… but despite looking around WP published info and on your site I couldn’t find anything about what has been updated. Can I please suggest that you add a small section for each of your great plug-ins that shows what version is current and previous and what was changed from one to the next. It would really help keep us informed. As it stands, I couldn;t even see what version is being downloaded currently. Once again, many thanks for some great plugins !
    p.s. I would still like to know what has been changed between v2 and v4 if you get the chance….. ! :-)

    Hello
    How do you change the scrolling speed? I have changed the javascript from 2000 as suggested but it makes no difference. I can find no other suggestions although the questions seems to have been asked several times.
    Thank you

      Hey m8. I had the same problem. You have to go in your phpmyadmin cp and change the utf8_bin to utf8_general_ci. I did it and it worked fine for me. Good luck.

    Hi Gopi – LOVE this plugin. I am so relieved because it doesn’t conflict with my current JQuery slider like many similar functionalities.

    Two quick questions.

    1. Any advice on how to slide left to right (instead of top to bottom)? I know it must be in that code in information-reel.js, but just not sure.
    2. Is there any way you can insert an arrow to trigger the movement?

    Hi,

    I am using this plugin and it works great except for the links. _blank, _new, _parent and so forth don’t actually do anything. They don’t open in a new window or a new tab. How do I fix this?

    • Admin

    Can this be link to existing post? I really like this link because it has the thumbnail, title and excerpt.

    I hop this can be linked to the posts.

      August 5, 2012 at 1:55 am #

      Yes, option available in another plugin.. please find the plugin list from this website sidebar..

    What is the name? Is that the Scroll post excerpt? Can it have a thumbnail?

    • Admin
      August 6, 2012 at 10:23 am #

      In Information Reel plugin you can add your own content to scroll.

      Scroll post excerpt will read the post title and create the scroll.

      Scroll rss excerpt will read the title from the given rss feed and create the scroll.

        hi Gopi
        here is a question i asked about News announcement scroll:

        The plugin works fine all i need is to figure out the background color or background image.
        i see posts about it but nothing that tells me where to add the css.

        i checked the files of the plugin in my ftp. i have no idea what folder and line to add or change the css. it is important for me to style the background

        please advise. thank you very much in advance

    hello sir! looks like a great plug in, but i’m trying to add it to my Eventor theme, but get the following error:

    Warning: strip_tags() expects parameter 1 to be string, array given in /home/content/44/9687444/html/wp-admin/widgets.php on line 225

    not sure how to deal with this, it’s happened on a few other similar plug ins of yours. any ideas? thank you for your work!

    August 27, 2012 at 2:55 pm #

    I noticed that after I install Information Reel that within minutes I get “No input file specified” instead of my homepage. I read different approaches to solving this problem from moving off Godaddy (not an option) to modifying the .htaccess file (yes, an option), to PHP / WP conflict.

    I’m sure this has come up for you before. I would like to keep Information Reel, but I need a solution to this problem to do so.

    Any ideas or solutions?

    Hi
    I must be missing something along the way. The plug was activated and placed into the sidebar however it goes to default not to the recent content on the pages.
    Please let me know how to go about ensuring it is showing my content with the photos in each of those pages.
    I appreciate your help. It is truly one of the better plug in available Great work

    Hi, neat plugin. Simple and works, but just wondered if you are planning
    to give an option to control how fast it’s scrolling (pause time interval).
    Oh and you mentioned setting an expiring date is possible but I did not find that option (downloaded from the WP repository).

    With those 2 functionalities added, it’s a perfect plugin!

    Thanks so far

    Great widget but I have come accross one issue. When I run SEO on my site after it is installed I get negative points because it doesn’t show an “alt” for the image, it looks like it should but is displays something like al ‘test’ after every image so I’m getting 4 negative SEO points.

    Be great to get an update with a fix, I’m sure it is something simple.

    Thanks!

  94. Fermin
    October 25, 2012 at 12:40 am #

    The plugin is great but has a problem, it does not put the “alt” to the images and that is not good for SEO.

    How do I get the Information Reel to display more than once on my site? Once I’ve used the widget, it gets placed under the settings tab and disappears from the widgets area. And since I’ve already downloaded it and its being used, its displayed as “Installed” in the plugins area. I would like to display it in the Single Posts Sidebar, as well as in the Main Page Sidebar. Thanx.

    Love the plug-in. Was working fine for several moths. Had thumbnail, and text wrapped around it, as it scrolled. Now Image has been enlarged to fill whole space, pixelated, and text smacked on top of the image. I’ve checked my set-up. Everything looks good there. Running WP 3.5.1. Anybody else have this problem? Or a solution?

    Thanks,

    Great plugin.

    But in version 7.0, the ability to change the text color via HTML in the description is broken.

    I used to be able to have a description like:
    Updated 17 May
    but this no longer works.

      We don’t have admin option to change the speed. Thus please update the scrolling speed in this information-reel.js JS file.
