    When I install it and put in the rss feed it shows the html tags instead of just the pure text from the feed. Any ideas?

    I’ve just add this plugin to my website, but I found a issue is that I can’t display 2 rss widget at the same time. As I know this plugin can let me display 4 widget at the same time.

    Can you help me solve this problem?

    Great plugin, but is there any way to add it directly to a theme rather than a widget, post, or page?

      HI MKF,

      Please use CSS for this class “srsse_div” to align the test to right.

    Great plugins. Thank you!

    I am using the same feed for both plugins at the bottom of the page:

    Scroll RSS Feed
    Scroll RSS Excerpt

    However only the Feed seems to work. I’d like to include some of each posts description in the feed but don’t see configuration for that anywhere, so I tried installing the excerpt plugin but it doesn’t seem to work (only displays one post and doesn’t scroll or honor excerpt length from settings)

    Your help is much appreciated. Thank you very much.

      This may be issue on your supplied RSS feed. Please check your RSS url.

    I am very new to this, so I apologize in advance for such a basic questions.
    1. Is there a maximum amount of information a RSS feed can stream to your plugin?
    2. Does the plugin cache the content of the RSS feed? And therefore the size of feed could be a problem?

    Thank You.

      We don’t have limit for the RSS, it read all the feed in the given RSS URL. and no cache used in this plugin.

    Hi. Can you help me on my problem? I got this error on this site: ”
    Fatal error: Call to undefined function mb_strlen() in /home/blogirat/public_html/ on line 387.”

    This happened after the site migrated to another server. Can’t figure out what’s wrong.

    Thanks in advance.

      We are using this mb_strlen() in the plugin and it will work only PHP 4+ and PHP 5+
