Does what it says but documentation could be better

I needed a plugin that will display all post that has a certain category and found this one. It looked as if it would do what I needed but I could never get it set correctly. It would either show all post or it would just give me the name of the category I wanted. I had to submit a question to the support forum to get the right settings I needed to make it work like I wanted. It takes a combination of settings to do this but the documentation doesn't mention this or I just missed it. But the support team was quick to respond and give me the exact settings to use to achieve what I needed. Darrell Jordan

Great plugin

..and easy to use. Plus, the developpers are helpful, thanks

works fine – but needs much better instrctions

Edit - from one star to four (misses five for inadequate instructions) ... Please change the example shortcode and place category="" at the end. As it is (and with no other explanation, the [wp_ticker category="" ... appears to refer to the wp ticker category id, not the wordpress category id. Once one makes that logical, but false assumption, then it is logical, but again false, to assume that post_cat="category" at the end is where the wordpress category id is placed. Place category="" at the end and it is more likely your users will understand that is where the wordpress category id goes. And say there is no need for the wp ticker category Or is there a need? Perhaps for multiple wp tickers on a page? How does that work? Beef up the explanation please. ---------- Prior review - Spent some time with this and cannot get it to work. 1. Using the given shortcode, the category="" element breaks the shortcode, it just doesn´t show (using either the ticker category name or the ID from hovering over the name). 2. It does work without the category="" element and using all the other elements, BUT it does not respect the post_cat="category using either the WP category name or the ID from hovering over the name. It just rolls through ALL the posts titles. Add in the unsatisfactory effort made to explain the plugin´s use. The Demo has less info than the plugin description page or the details from the installed plugin list, and the "Plugin Documentation" link from the Demo page does not even list this plugin. Frustrating. Hope the developers put some effort into making it work and explaining it better, but they just wasted over an hour of my time. I´ll go elsewhere for a ticker.
