    Perhaps I'm missing something. I uploaded and activated the plugin but I don't know how to make it work. How do I add a ticker at the top of my page?

    I apologize for the delay in answering your question. I did not receive an email notification and just happened to be checking the forum today.

    WP-BxSlider uses the shortcode [wpbxslider] with options typed into the shortcode. You need to have a master html element that is a container for the rest of the elements that will be tickered. This can be an unordered list ul tag with list items. or a div tag with child div tags, or a div tag with child p tags.

    You can place anything you want as child elements including text, images, or a combination of both. I explicitly set the width of the container and of every item I want to ticker or slide - just to be sure.

    This link is for a page that contains two tickers which I generated for another interested party: http://www.andrewfriedl.com/wp-bxslider/wp-bxslider-example-2/

    The short codes that invoke the plugin to create the individual tickers are below.

    [wpbxslider id="ticker1" ticker="true" tickerspeed="9000" tickerhover="true" /]
    [wpbxslider id="ticker2" ticker="true" tickerspeed="18000" tickerhover="true" /]

    I hope this help
