Featured Posts Scroll

A basic javascript based scrolling display of post titles and thumbnails.


  • Corrected issue with plugin appearing on post/page templates.
  • Made caching to static CSS and JS files optional. Some users have reported issues with this feature.


  • Corrected issue with activation that was causing new variables to not be initialized to default values.


  • Reorganized/renamed some CSS and JS files. Removed files that are no longer used.
  • Corrected issue where plugin could interfere with post/page templates causing the wrong post data to be displayed.
  • Code refactoring and cleanup: activate/deactivate functions, admin page, js files.
  • Performance update. CSS and JS that were generated from PHP on every page view are now saved to static files every time an admin option is changed.
  • Removed !is_paged() check that prevented plugin from displaying on multiple pages of a list. To replicate old behavior, add if (!is_paged()){...} around the fps_show() call.


  • Fixed autoscrolling. (Corrected jQuery reference in autoscroll callback function)


  • Refactored JavaScript to prevent causing issues with plugins that assume "$" references jQuery.


  • Fixed slide numbers.

  • Added some admin options for controlling image scaling/cropping.


  • Added "Spread" parameter for drop shadows.
  • Added new "No Border" arrow position. Note that Slide Numbers are not currently available with this configuration.


  • Added user-defined auto-scroll interval, scroll speed, text fade in/out times.
  • Fixed some issues in versions of Firefox prior to 4.0 (broken scrolling, inconsistent text colors).
  • Addressed image tiling issue. Images now get centered in view if not large enough. Next version will have user specified background color.

  • Removed bold/italic options for slide numbers.

  • Corrected issue with heading text not displaying (bug introduced in 1.10).

  • Addressed issue where title/excerpt would initially appear in a default position potentially in the middle of the post image.
  • Created separate settings for inner/outer box corner radii and drop shadows.
