    Thanks for fantastic plugin :) I need this for a kind of news website. They sometimes have ticker, title and subtitle. I can use this as subtitle but I don't know how to use it as ticker.
    In addition I wanna know how to add a ticker field in post.

    I'm sorry, I can't support custom implementations. However, you can echo the subtitle anywhere you like. Within a loop all you have to do is:

    if( function_exists( 'the_subtitle' ) ) the_subtitle();

    Or outside of a loop, to get the subtitle of a particular post id

    if( function_exists( 'get_the_subtitle' ) ) echo get_the_subtitle($post_id);

    I've used these codes before the title in theme's post php file to use this feature:

    // The Ticker -> Before the main title
    <h3 class="entry-ticker">
    	     $Ticker_value = get_post_meta( get_the_ID(), 'Ticker', true );
    	     if( ! empty( $Ticker_value ) )
    	     { echo $Ticker_value; }

    If someone don't like to use any addition plugin can add this part of code to where s/he like as subtitle. I've added it after the main title:

    // The Subtitle -> After the main title
    <h3 class="entry-subtitle">
    	     $Subtitle_value = get_post_meta( get_the_ID(), 'Subtitle', true );
    	     if( ! empty( $Subtitle_value ) )
    	     { echo $Subtitle_value; }

    in addition I added these codes to CSS file. You can customize it as you'd like :(

    h3.entry-ticker {font-size: 70%;}
    h3.entry-subtitle {font-size: 70%;}

    Now, just add two custom fields to the post that you like have ticker of subtitle. Name the fields "Subtitle" and "Ticker".
