    This plugin is really great, but it comes with a couple bugs.

    Below I will walk you through how to make the plugin Great Again!

    1. removed the code “sync: 0,” on line 58 in ‘ticker.php’
    2. remove the end “,” on line 61 in ‘ticker.php’
    3. Updated the jQuery Cycle plugin (cycle.js) to their latest version http://jquery.malsup.com/cycle/
    4. Updated jQuery library to latest version http://jquery.com/
    5. add “ul#news-ticker” & “ul#news-ticker li” to your css
    6. that add “overflow:hidden”to the ul & li and “display:none” to just the li
    7. Once plugin is activated make sure you set the height in the plugin settings or it will brake

    The rest of the formatting is up to you.

    Step #2 is a fix for IE7
    Step #6 is for IE7 & IE8

    Should work in all browser after these quick fixes. Im going to package this up and try to submit a patch.

    Want to thanks @darrenbond for posting his findings that lead me to fixing the rest.
