Support » Plugin: Ditty News Ticker » Such an awesome find! Few notes to make it even better!

  • Resolved Kramarz


    Thanks mate for this plug-in! So much possibilities I can see for it!
    Two notes to help you make it even better! 🙂

    1. At the moment I have noticed that if I have ‘Control Navigation’ enabled in Rotating mode for Ticker and I’ll play a bit with clicking on navigation in the front end, plugin goes a bit crazy randomly changing speeds, skips to different tickers etc. See if you can fix that please 🙂

    2. also there is attribute “type” not specified for the script I believe which causes HTML Validation errors to take a look at.

    Once again, thanks for this plug-in!
    Such a potential!

    Kind Regards

    EDIT: And when I left it going crazy it hang my Firefox for good! 😉
    EDIT2 (last for tonight): Actually it seems that it goes crazy when any of the features are enabled – pause on mouse-over or navigations :-/

  • A few days ago I scoured the whole of the internet looking for a news ticker like this, and the one I ended up with is a big compromise.

    Hoping you can sort out the bugs, as detailed above – this certainly shows lots of potential.

    My request : for widget functionality (nothing flash – settings page to stay the same, just with a drag & drop box for the widgets page).

    Good luck with your plugin – it deserves to be a success.

    @kramarz – Can you provide a link to your site that I can check out? I’m not seeing the issues that you have mentioned.

    @photomaldives – Can you expand on your idea for the widget? I’m not quite understanding what you have described.

    Hi metaphorcreations – thanks for your reply.

    Sorry I wasn’t clear – my request is simply to be able to use this plugin as a widget, rather than just adding the shortcode to pages/posts. As a widget, I can then easily embed it into widget areas – footer, sidebar.

    I know it is often possible to paste the plugin’s shortcode text into a text widget, but this is not so user-friendly for the end user, especially when you have several widgets setup this way.

    Gotcha. I’m one step ahead of you!
    There already is a widget for it included in the plugin. Check your Widgets page for Ditty News Ticker. It allows you to select one of your tickers and also enable/disable the ticker title. All other setting for the ticker will need to be set in the actual Ticker edit page.

    hehe … that’s great !

    I’m off to install it now … 🙂

    Since I haven’t heard back from the original poster, I’m assuming those issues where due to the user’s machine and not my plugin. Marking this topic as resolved.
