    • Use the above code in the page or post to render this plugin. GROUP is used to separate the announcement text. you can create many records and can group them with the GROUP field in the text management area. please feel free to post your doubt.

    • Hi Gopi I have updated to version 3 but it does not seem to work! The last version was great and worked well. I am putting [FADEIN_TEXT_NEWS GROUP=”widget”] this into the page html where Ii want the pop up to be displayed, what am I doing wrong?

      Thanks, Sean.

      • now I’m not seeing anything.
        Iv’e put only one text line to test – but nothing is showing…
        weird.
        this is the code Iv’e pasted in the PHP:

        when I reverted to “horizontal news” it works.
        I casically want to swap between “horizontal” and “fade in”…

      • I am having the same issue. In the Text Management form, I try to type in all information and nothing happens. The text does not even save. It goes back to a blank screen indicating that there is “no data available”. I don’t even see the list of entries in the lower half of this page. Am I doing something wrong?

  1. ————————-
    [FADEIN_TEXT_NEWS GROUP=”mens”]
    ————————-
    MEN’s

    A snipit from my code is shown above.
    The fade in text message does not fade in but instead is formatted as underlined and solid

    HELP !

  2. Hej Gori
    I have replaced Ticker with your plugin fade in text message. It worked great until I change some parameters under settings when is topped working. Only the first message shows and all formating is gone. Would it be possible for you to take a look at the site to see if you can find out what went wrong? If not, please let me know.
    PS I uninstalled the plugin and reinstalled, but no change.DS
    Thanks,
    Harald

  3. I have tried both the method 1 and method 2 for the plugin configuration, both return : “undefined”

    I have not tried the method 3 because I don’t know how I can try that.

    How can you help for either of the 3 methods to work?

    Thanks.

      • I have this:

        ID Message Group Order Display Action
        1 Think positive! sample 1 YES Edit Delete
        3 Keep moving! sample 3 YES Edit Delete

        And the method 1 as described by Gopi say:
        * Go to widget link under Appearance tab, Drag and drop ‘fade in text news’ widget into your side bar.

        Do I need to replace the widget? If so how?

  4. Now in the version 3.0 we can add our HTML content in the text area… now in the demo i have included HTML content with color option. :)

  5. Hi, i am using this plugin.Thir is one problem when i changed text color ,fade in and fade out effect not show.

    • By default, the script fades from black-to-white upon enter, and white-to-black upon exit.

      So we can see the effect only with default color.

  6. I have installed “Fade in Text News” plugin,
    under the Text Management settings after entering all the required field like “Message” “Display Status” “Group Name” “Display Order” there is a field for “Link” what is this link…..???? and what should be entered there….??? I am the web admin…..but a novice in this field can you explain me in simple steps as to what to enter in the “Link” field.Thank you.

    • Link field : This is the redirect link for that text. if the user click that text the page will redirect to that link.

      Target : This option is to open the link in new window or same window.

  7. Hi Gopi,

    First – great plug-in! I loved watching the fade in/out when I first installed it.

    Unfortunately, it no longer works for me…. only “undefined” now.

    I put in my own texts and I deleted the sample texts. Then I only get undefined.

    I deactivated plug-in, then reactivated — “undefined”

    I deactivated, deleted, reinstalled and — “undefined”

    I would like help, but I’m already searching for another plug-in. I hope I can use your “WP fade in text news” but it doesn’t look good for me.

    Hope you can help. Thanks,
    -Jeff

    • Ok no problem. just enter only one record in the admin and see the front end .. enter clear text ( no special character ). and share the admin screen or link…

  8. To fix “undefined” message you must to deactivate the plugin, and then activate. That’s all. It works for me.

    Thanks for the great plugin.

  9. Update: “undefined” Message:

    The plugin only works if I choose “widget” as name in the “Group name” field in “Text management” configuration.

    May be this is a bug, but is easy to fix it only using “widget” as name in the “Group name”.

    Cheers!

  10. Fiest of all, let me congratulate you your excellnet plugin.
    I have 4″ blocks” of text, that I want to be spaced out exactly over 80 seconds, like this: Display first text for 30 seconds, followed by blank for 10 second, followed by second text 30 seconds, followed by blank 10 second.
    How should I set the parameters below?
    Fade Out:
    Fade In:
    Fade:
    Fade Step:
    Fade Wait:
    I have experimented with several, and don’t now exactly what to do to recreate the timing I described above.
    Thanks!

  13. hello is it possible that someone tell me or show me how to center the popup and make it over the amazon carrousel ?

    thx for youe great help.

  14. I got your fade in text news to work but the underlined link text is distracting. I see you do not have the problem in your demo. How do I get rid of link lines when not having cursor over the text? Thanks in advance.

    Marcus

  15. If you visit my home page now, there is a video which covers up most of the pop up.

    Is there a way to get the pop up on the top layer? or if not, is there a way to change the width and height so as to have the pop up be in a different position with regard to the video?

    Thanks.

  16. Gopi,
    Your plugin looks like it would be perfect for what I’d like to do. But I have a problem. How do I get rid of the underline in the text? We must specify a link for each text entry, but I don’t want the text to have an underline when it shows on the web page. Where can I change the “text decoration” to “none” so the underline does not show? Thank you.

  17. Good plugin, but I can’t use it because of the underline problem mentioned above. I know it’s CSS, but it’s too much trouble to change just to make this work. The easy answer for me would be for you to remove the need for the the message to have a Link associated with it – for my initial application I don’t need it to have a link. If I did need it to link then having the underline may not be such a problem – but it would still be good to turn it off.

    Also, I think you should put some basic help text on the config screen to help people understand the settings page, and you could have made life easier by including the shortcode in the message settings page so people could just cut and paste.

  18. Hello, i’m new with this plugin as well as with wordpress. i have installed this plugin into my demo website and i can say you have done a magnificent work. However, there is something that i really need for my website. can i use recent post from blog category? if yes i would need some instructions or something to make it work.

    thank you
    Best

  19. Does this plug in have any custom capability? I only want a role set up in user role editor plugin to have access to fade in text news plug-in. Even though I have added new capability fade_in_text_news in the user role editor for the role in question it does not allow the role to access the plug-in. Any ideas how I can do this or do I need to find a text displaying plugin that has custom capability?

  20. hello, working on a popup add that is almost full width. I am using something that is banner size, and I am having trouble with cool fade popup. I have edited the css file to allow me the width to make that work, but it tells me that the css file is inactive. can you please email or give guidance as to the correct css that needs to be placed to facilitate full screen or large popups??

  21. This plug-in worked really well to begin with, but now the text simply switches from one piece of text to the next, with no fading. Can you please specify what the parameters do? I know you’ve said that they control the way the fade effect works, but please let us know how they work, so that I can get the text fading again!!

  22. Gopi, thank you for the plugin. I would like to have the text appear in-line; i.e., no line breaks. Editing a CSS would be ideal, and I see references to FadeIn_CSS but do not see the CSS file where this class is defined. Can you explain further?

  23. Gopi, here are a few things that would be really great:

    1. Enable/disable the linking.

    2. Link should be able to do “target=_blank” so that a new window is opened if needed.

    3. Ability to put the text completely inline with existing text. I have not yet been able to do this with CSS.

    4. Ability to style the font (color, size, etc.)

    Thank you for considering!

  24. I have your plugin installed on my site and I love it. However I can’t get it to stop jumping when it switches from one line to another, is there a way to make it a default size? Thanks so much!

  25. You should create a help document that explains all the technical questions so that users can easily get these answers instead of having to scroll thru postings, most of which are not answered. Here are my questions that also include questions from others that were not answered:

    1. I have entered on my page. It only displays items created with the group name of “widget”, why? Doesn’t this defeat the purpose of creating groups? I use the php code because I’m entering it in a php file/template – I don’t want to use the widget feature nor the short-code because I want this on more than just one page.

    2. Settings issues/questions:
    Title: <- this does not show up; why?

    What are the timings for the settings below? Is this in milliseconds or seconds? The first two sound obvious but what exactly are the last three?
    Fade Out:
    Fade In:
    Fade:
    Fade Step:
    Fade Wait:

    3. I want my link for the text to launch another window instead of navigating away from my page. However it appears that you can't put html code in the link field. You have a posting on May 19, 2011 at 3:08 pm where you mention "Target" but like the "Gigy" person I don't see that option either. How to have this launch a new window?

    Thanks.

  26. Hello well I’ve got a same issue i suppose…! i installed and paste the php code in my template..but the result comes with ‘undefined’ message instead of my own entered text.

    any solution to fix this bug..?

  27. Having trouble getting it to work. I have four text messages set to “Yes” display and each is part of a group called “widget”. I added this to the bottom of the page in the html section “[FADEIN_TEXT_NEWS GROUP=”widget”]” but no show. I’ve tried adding it to the sidebar and it doesn’t show up there either. I’m missing something but what?

  28. The rotation doesn’t work at all. does that go tot do with the setup (that you don’t answer about….):
    Fade Out:
    Fade In:
    Fade:
    Fade Step:
    Fade Wait:

    also please, I’ve got “” in the titles could they be causing this problem?

    Also, I’ve got another scrooling widget of yours, can they be at the same page?
    thank you, Shlomo

    • hey James,

      I’m not Gopi, but I did have the same problem you have.

      Here is how you fix it:

      Enter just one record in the admin. Look at the front end .. enter clear text (no special character).
      Share the admin screen or link

      Fixed.

  29. I’ve read a few good stuff here. Definitely price bookmarking for revisiting. I wonder how so much attempt you put to make this type of magnificent informative site.

  30. Good plugin, but I can’t use it because of the underline problem mentioned above. I know it’s CSS, but it’s too much trouble to change just to make this work. The easy answer for me would be for you to remove the need for the the message to have a Link associated with it – for my initial application I don’t need it to have a link.

I’m missing something but what?

    I’m having the same issue. My widget works, but the shortcode in my page doesn’t.

  32. Hello, using your plugin on the home page only using Conditional tags and ‘do shortcode’ in my template file. When I go to an interior page, Firebug shows an error repeating:
    “FadeIn_bFadeOutt is not defined [Break On This Error] if (FadeIn_bFadeOutt) {”

    I’m using:
    if ( is_front_page() ) {
    // display certain sidebar content on home page only
    if (function_exists (FadeIn)) FadeIn();
    echo “”;
    } else {
    // catch-all for everything else (archives, searches, 404s, etc)
    echo “”;
    } // That’s all, folks!

  33. i have dark background of fade in text news. default settings are not useful i want contraversy effect… please tell me how to

  34. The frustrating thing about this plugin is that it is almost a great idea. As stated in above comments, it only works if the group name is “widget” otherwise you get an undefined message.
    I tried another group name, no special characters or anything .e.g “mygroup” and get the undefined message, so I am forced to always use the group name “widget” for it to work.
    Someone already highlighted this exact bug, but I noticed the plugin author responded, but in their response did not acknowledge the bug, so to this day, the bug remains.

  35. I have fixed the bug regarding the fact that it ONLY works with the group name ‘widget’ so that it now can work with any group name.
    In the file wp-fade-in-text-news.php around line 54 it says:
    $sSql = “select FadeIn_text,FadeIn_link from “.WP_FadeIn_TABLE.” where FadeIn_status=’YES’ and FadeIn_group=’widget'”;
    which is a problem because it is ONLY retrieving records from the database if they have the group name “widget”. All you need to do is shorten this line to this:
    $sSql = “select FadeIn_text,FadeIn_link from “.WP_FadeIn_TABLE.” where FadeIn_status=’YES'”;

    • this doesnt work for me, i have two groups on one page – is this simply a fix for being able to display more than one group?

  36. I keep getting ‘Undefined’ instead of the message that it should be.

    I have two entries with text.

    Any ideas on how to fix it?

    • Ihave code in my theme below:

      maybe can help you.

      But @admin, when I hardcode your function into my template, I don’t know how to filter into group.
      When I took it produce an error.

      Pls, give us your light.
      Thx.

  37. Oops, html code is not accepted here…

    div style=”text-align:center;”
    ?php if (function_exists (FadeIn)) FadeIn(); ?
    /div

    *you should add ” at begin and end of each line.

  38. Hello,

    Thanks for such awesome plugin.

    If I place your both plugin Image horizontal reel scroll & Fade in text news then “Fade in text news” do not work.

    If I remove Image horizontal reel scroll from that page then Fade in text news again starts to work.

    Can you please help to run both at same page.

  39. Hi, I have been testing the horizontal scroller plugin together with a popup plugin, which works file. When you click on the text in the scroller, it opens the relevant popup.
    The link I use is this : Leden:stuur uw gegevens op

    Now I would like to use this too for the WP fade in plugin, but I did not get it to work. So instead opening a post I would like to show a popup. Can you please help? Thanks!

  40. Any update on removing the link feature? I use the text for book reviews and most do not require a link. If you could put in a check box to use, or not use a link it would be nice.

  41. hello there,

    i just added this plugin it looks nice on my client’s website and now my clients need that plugin must come with 3/4 group displayed
    any body please help me out

    Thanks

  42. The fade in text message does not fade in but instead is formatted as underlined and solid, and linked to # not the linked page described when i insert the text.
    Please help

  43. so I love the plug in but have a problem, I can’t seem to change the color of your font to white and it doesn’t fade to and from invisible, but white instead.

    I need the font to be white and the fade color to either be transparent or black

    help!

    thanks!

  44. I see your comments about the fadein.css file to edit to remove the underline, or link. I have searched everwhere for this file.
    Can you tell me where it is?

  45. Admin, a few people have already asked you to explain the functionality of each of the following commands:

    Fade Out:
    Fade In:
    Fade:
    Fade Step:
    Fade Wait:

    Will you ever reply to this question?

  46. I am trying to have the widget include a with some custom CSS so i can have some text in a differnet color. But the fade effect does not get applied to the ‘d content. thoughts?

  47. hi i use this plugin,but it not works for me..just what i type in the text management it will show in the front end with a underlined text….sri and widget are the two group names.. please help me

  48. Uncaught ReferenceError: FadeIn_SetFadeLinks is not defined wp-fade-in-text-news.js:35
    650Uncaught ReferenceError: FadeIn_bFadeOutt is not defined wp-fade-in-text-news.js:47

    29835
    Uncaught ReferenceError: FadeIn_bFadeOutt is not defined wp-fade-in-text-news.js:47

    Over a year later… Please, please can you fix this darn plugin? :(

  49. When I try to use the shortcode, the plugin works fine with the default text. But when I edit the text and refresh the page, it reads, “No record found for this short code”.

  50. Hi
    I’m trying add a paragraph in the text so I can layout the text for a testimonial but pressing Enter does not insert a paragraph.

    How do I get around this?

    Thanks

  51. The values listed are:

    if(!is_numeric($FadeIn_FadeOut)){ $FadeIn_FadeOut = 255; }
    if(!is_numeric($FadeIn_FadeIn)){ $FadeIn_FadeIn = 0; }
    if(!is_numeric($FadeIn_Fade)){ $FadeIn_Fade = 0; }
    if(!is_numeric($FadeIn_FadeStep)){ $FadeIn_FadeStep = 3; }
    if(!is_numeric($FadeIn_FadeWait)){ $FadeIn_FadeWait = 3000;

    And they result in a flash of white of the existing message, then flash into white of the incoming message. How to we change the timing of the white, or remove them altogether?

  52. I’ve been having the same problem with undefined appearing and haven’t found a fix.

    It seems that if you just edit the default text, all works well.

    If you blow away the test text and enter in new items, things go wonky.

    Any one else seen this?

  53. Hi — working with your plugin on a localhost server in development. It’s exactly what I need… but I’m having difficulty applying text-align: right to the actual text. I’ve tried adding classes to the a tag, but that’s not working. I’d really appreciate some help…

    Thanks!

  54. Gopi – many thanks for a great plug-in. Only slight problem I have is that when one first accesses the appropriate webpage http://www.dormen.org.uk, the first text line appears in another colour (blue) with a backslash at the left hand end of it. Is it possible to use the settings to suppress this please?
    Do hope there may one day be a random order option.
    Thanks again.

  55. Hi

    i was wondering if there was anything in the works to allow for more than one fade in fade out per page. I saw it is not possible per the FAQ section.

    i have a page that has 3 columns and it would be AWESOME to have fade in and fade out text under each one. Currently i am using it on my home page and i really the product.

    any suggestions? something in beta now maybe?

  56. I’ve just started using this plugin today. It does work after a bit of faddling about. For all those above who have been getting nonsensical answers in respect of removing the underline then this is what you need to add to your main style.css theme php file:

    #FadeIn_CSS a {
    text-decoration:none;
    }

    Nobody above seemed to actually be able to just give the answer!

    Moving on now to trying to suss out how to change the colour fade as we don’t all want it to be black to white!

  57. I would like to fade in and out recent posts. I just received this plugin and only see an option to add manually text to display. Can it be done, so that the plugin pulls from the recent posts part of my site?

  58. UNDEFINED PROBLEM SOLVED!
    go to phpmyadmin then change Collation of this columns : FadeIn_id , FadeIn_text , FadeIn_link , FadeIn_order in the wp_FadeInText_plugin table, to a proper UTF8 value.

  59. Hi Gopi,

    Thanks for the plug-in!

    I was wondering if there is any way to remove the redirect link from the text. I don’t want the text to look “clickable”. I tried to leave the link field blank, but I’m required to enter something in that field.

    Thanks!
