[Plugin: News-Ticker] Does not scroll. Lists all items

  • eerikk2


    A website I am working on (www.domusstudio.com) has a blog ticker at the bottom of the page specifically the http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/news-ticker/

    The problem if you can tell from visiting the site it that the ticker is not ticking. It is simply listing all the elements. I have deduced the cause to be something from my theme but I can not figure out what. I have tried removing all my styling, I have tried (i think) to remove all the other javascript.

    Is there some other cause of this. It is not just this plugin I also tried using http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-newsticker/

    They both act the same way.

    Here is the deal: you theme loads jQuery twice (one v1.8.2 the other v1.7.2). It may also load the jQuery Cycle plugin twice as well. By the looks of it the first jQuery is not enqueued as well as the first cycle plugin. Check your header.php for these two lines:

    <script src="//ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.8.2/jquery.min.js">
    <script src="http://malsup.github.com/jquery.cycle.all.js">

    Try removing them to see what happens. Usually the correct way to include scripts in themes and plugins is by enqueuing them and allowing some fallbacks if needed. Read more here: http://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/wp_enqueue_script
