[Plugin: Horizontal scrolling announcement] Issue with content retention in settings.

  • I have only just loaded this for the first time and I can’t add content to the scrolling bar via Horizontal Scrolling->Content Management.

    I read that others who use it deactivate and activate again but this didn’t work either. Nothing I enter into the content form is saved. I can only assume there should be a list of items to scroll or something when content has been successfully added.

    I’d love to know that I’ve done something wrong or missed a setting but unfortunately I don’t think so.

  • I’m having the exact same issue. Tried deactivating and re-activating to find that no data is stored.

    The plugin doesnt display any of my previous content either. I’m going to try and find an alternative.

    I found this problem also and tracked it down. There are many undefined variables not initialized. The SQL statement to write the message therefore gets corrupted and does not generate a new record in the database. In any event, if you turn on errors and then go into the source and fix all of the undefined variable errors (there are about 20 of them), the plugin then works flawlessly. For the SQL statement to work there may only be one variable needed to initialized, but why take the chance?

    If anyone is interested I will post the specific code changes.

    @ macmiller

    If you still have those code changes, I’m interested. Can you put them at pastbin and put the link here?

    Thanks,

    found a problem with the location of one initialization statement updated version below.
