Ditty News Ticker
[resolved] Ditty New Ticker not scrolling (6 posts)

    I have placed the short code on this page http://www.integratedmp.com/portal-2/ The ticker displays as 3 static lines and does not scroll. Can someone take a look and let me know what I need to do to get this to work.

    You have a javascript error on your site from CodaSlider:

    ncaught TypeError: Object #<Object> has no method 'codaSlider' www.integratedmp.com:21

    This error is causing all other javascript to not work, which is why the ticker is not working as it should.

    Please disable the CodaSlider and see if that fixes the issue.

    Thanks for the quick response. I deleted the Coda Slider Plugin and made sure there was no mention of that offending script on the page. It still is not functioning. I get this message in Web Councel "TypeError: jQuery(…).ditty_news_ticker is not a function". It points to the following script. Can you spot the error?
    <script>
    jQuery( window ).load( function() {
    jQuery( '#mtphr-dnt-1019' ).ditty_news_ticker({
    id : '1019',
    type : 'scroll',
    scroll_direction : 'left',
    scroll_speed : 10,
    scroll_pause : 0,
    scroll_spacing : 40 });
    });
    </script>
    </div>

    It looks like your theme is not including the required:

    <?php wp_footer(); ?>
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_footer

    and probably isn't including the required:

    <?php wp_head(); ?>
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_head

    This is probably why the codaSlider was erring out as well. Without these function calls in your theme the Ditty News Ticker plugin (and many more) will not work.
