    Neither the shortcode (in a page) nor the PHP command will work to generate the content of the plugin in the theme I’m using. Can you tell me what could be wrong?

    Love the plugin! It worked just fine when I had it in the footer of my site, but when I moved it above the posts, it was interfering with the content for each post/page on the site.

    I saw you were using query_posts(), so I added a reset on line 151 to fix this:

    // Reset Query
    wp_reset_query();

    Please consider adding this reset to future versions. Thanks for all your hard work! =)

    Very nice plugin, but whatever I put in the ‘Scroll style’ configuration box seems to be ignored.

    Correction to the above!

    The value entered in ‘Scroll style’ is being used, but the colour value is not being applied to the scrolling post title only to the separator string.

    How do I change the colour of the post title?

    Will only display one post for me no matter what the settings.
    And Post orderby must be set to ID or empty… when empty it displays one post, when set to ID it displays another… any other setting and nothing is displayed.
    If I put anything in category it also displays nothing. Not sure what to try to make it work.

      Hi Andy, I went across the same issue. At first I was writing the category name and you need to wirte de ID, its a number. Then I tried numbers 1 through 6 because thats the number of categories I have but just one displayed some titles and it was “1” that is the first category ever created because its set as default = “uncategorized”— Well long story short, go into your phpmyadmin and on your database should be a table called WP_TERMS, there it resides all the categories and tags! so that is why when I tried 1 through 6 it didnt work for me cause the tags occupies a space so my ID was 12! you can easily find out what ID you need. Hope this helps.

    Hi there,
    thanks for an easy title scroll tool.

    I use ptms directly attached to the menu of the twenty ten bar. Unfortunatly in the pmts code you added the style “padding:3px”. Any additional ist overwrited which makes it impossible to align ptms next to an object without editing your lines.

    Would you consider to add an padding style field to configur the style in the future?

    Hello and thanks for your plugin. It’s one of the few that works ok with my other plugins.

    Just one comment: what if I need more than one thicker for different categories? For example I have a multilingual site and need to show one thicker within a category for a language and another from a different category to the other language.

    Thanks again and keep up the good work.

  26. Why is the title coming up as an H!
    November 19, 2012 at 10:41 pm #

    Why is the tile in this case recent News coming up as an H1.

    hi! thanks for such a wonderful plugin. I want to know that how can I add a title “Recent Posts” in front of Marquee, when I call it by inserting code to the theme. It is currently showing full width scroll, but I want to show “Recent Posts” text on the Left and then the scrolling titles.

    It all works fine for me although I’d like to set the scrolling text to start ‘visible’ and looping.

    Just so you don’t start with a blank bar and have to wait 10 seconds to see your options.

    Thanks.

    Great plugin, but working strangely now – after I had to get rid of another
    plugin that messed things up. Now if I provide no Title (I don’t want a title), the scroll font defaults to black – even though I have color:#ffffff; in the settings.

    Any help appreciated!

    Is there a way to keep the text flowing rather than a blank space? A “repeat loop” option would be nice.

    Thanks
