      Hi Martin,

      Style option available in the admin. we can use the CSS class for coloring.

    Ah!, ok. First of all, thank you for such prompt response.
    Would you be so kind to make an example with a background color?. I’m starting to study CSS and I can not find the line where to change it.
    Sorry for my English level.

    Very grateful for your work.

    Trying to use the marquee on a page. I added the short code to the page. In the preview, all of the page content, except for the title is not visible. I upgraded to WP 3.4.2 but I am still getting the same result. Can you help?

    Can I use this with a custom post type? What do I have to do to the code to pull the custom post type and their categories instead of the regular posts?

    This is failing in Safari for me. It looks like the foreach loop that checks for posts and displays the titles is not being recognised as closed. The anchor tag for the last post title is being wrapped around the next HTML element and causing it to be a link, which it shouldn’t. I can’t figure out how to resolve this but it does work perfectly in every other browser, including IE8.

    Can you help please? Let me know if you need a link to the where the problem is.

    Thank you

    What plugin would you recommend to scrol a vertical list of donors?
    I don’t want to have to enter in each donor separately. Can I cut and paste a list of donors and then have it scroll?

    Is there a way to eliminate the whitespace between the end of the scroll list and beginning of the next scroll? The whitespace seems to equal the length of the list of post titles. I’d prefer and endless scroll.

    Hi. The native wordpress “recent posts” widget disappears if someone visits my site and NOT logged in. It reappears if someone who has access to my posts logs in. However, with your widget when someone visits the site and NOT logged in, your widget doesn’t disappear, it just shows in red, “record not found”. I’d like it to disappear like the native widget. Is this possible?

      This may be theme facility. You theme may have option to display widget in particular page.

    Does this plugin support “target=”_blank” for opening the link in a new window when clicked on?

    Also, will this run under WordPress 4.0?

      In default, it will open the link in same window. you can modify the link on the file vertical-marquee-post-title.php line 66

    The scrolling doesn’t stop when you hover over the link. Can this be corrected?
