WP-Newsticker
Ticker content covers entire screen (1 post)

    I encountered this error and looked for a fix but didn't find one so I went on a hunch and surrounded the ticker with a <div id="tickerbox" style="display:none">

    then used this javascript code in my <HEAD> to hide the content until it fixes itself

    <script language="Javascript">

    function tickerfix_timer() {
    setTimeout('tickerfix()', 6000);
    }

    function tickerfix() {
    var tbox = document.getElementById("tickerbox");
    tbox.style.display="inline";
    }

    tickerfix_timer();

    </script>

    Seems like 5000ms is how long it takes to correct itself, so I wouldn't go lower than 5500

    Hope that helps someone.
