Support » Plugin: Ditty News Ticker » News Ditty not displaying after update

  • Resolved ChristofferBaker

    The News ticker on this page (under “Praying for MCC”) has been working for a year at least. I noticed the plugin has been updated and now it no longet displays in scroll mode. It only displays in list mode.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    An issue like this is usually caused by a javascript error since the list mode doesn’t use javascript. On your site I’m seeing the following error:

    Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'srcsetAttr' of undefined
        at siteground-optimizer-lazy-load-images-responsive-js.min.js:1
        at siteground-optimizer-lazy-load-images-responsive-js.min.js:11
    
    siteground-optimizer-lazy-load-images-responsive-js.min.js:1

    There are also 4 more “resource not found” errors, but I don’t think those would cause this issue (though, you still may want to look into and resolve them):

    Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 404 ()
    bootstrap.min.css:1
    Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 404 ()
    bootstrap-glyphicons.css:1
    Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 404 ()
    collapse.js:1
    Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 404 ()
    skip-link-focus-fix.js:1

    I’m guessing these errors existed before. But, when a plugin updates, the order that all your plugins load may be modified. Previously, the ticker scripts may have been loading before the siteground-optimizer script threw an error. Now, it’s most likely loading afterwards and being affected by the error.

    You can try using a plugin like https://wordpress.org/plugins/plugins-load-order/ to force the ticker to load first, which may resolve the issue. Otherwise, the javascript error will need to be resolved to get the scrolling ticker back up and running.

    @colinriche thanks for letting me know. I have released another update that resolves this error.

    Also 2.2.6 has “Warning: Use of undefined constant MTPHR_DNT_STORE_URL – assumed ‘MTPHR_DNT_STORE_URL’ (this will throw an Error in a future version of PHP) in […]wp-content/plugins/ditty-news-ticker/eddsl/eddsl.php on line 112”

    @pape8291 Thanks. I have this resolved now in 2.2.7… Hopefully that’s the last of bugs!

    Thanks, looks fine with 2.2.7
