  1. 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?

  2. Hello,

    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?


  3. Thanks for a great plugin

    Everything works perfect except the text link are aligned to the left of the widget.

    I need help to let the links float right to left because Im using rtl language in my website.

    Thanks in advance

  4. Great plugins. Thank you!

    I am using the same feed for both plugins at the bottom of the page:http://www.turnherelabs.com/SS2/

    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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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/outsourcingpilipinas.com/wp-content/plugins/scroll-rss-excerpt/scroll-rss-excerpt.php on line 387.”

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

    Thanks in advance.
