    Hi..I put the widget for ditty into the Header 2 section on my site. However, its not running. Am I missing something that I should be doing? I read through the forum and didnt find much on using the widget. I did the settings, entered the text, added the widget to the home 2 section in parallax pro genesis..but nada happening.
    Help greatly appreciated.

    I got the ticker working after deleting browser cache..however I am not clear on how I connect another message to the first one with a different link. I tried adding another widget but that just went below. Sorry for asking this as its probably obvious but somehow I am not finding how to write a news item and then have another news item with a different url link show up in the same line. I then tried rotate mode per the settings but that just froze the entire feed. I have 2 ticks that I would like to show in scroll going from left to right.

    Just discovered the magic! In the box where you write your tick there is a little plus sign in the upper right hand corner of the tick box…click on that and a new box appears and you can enter a new tick with new link and then they follow each other.
    Hope this helps others.

    Here is a new situation…if I turn on async javascript…the ticker stops and wont run. Can you tell me what is the script I should include to exclude from async the ticker?

    Plugin Author metaphorcreations

    (@metaphorcreations)

    The id of the script is “ditty-news-ticker”, the path is “wp-content/plugins/ditty-news-ticker/inc/static/js/ditty-news-ticker.min.js”.

    There’s also a swiped events script that is used for touch enabled swipes. Id is “swiped-events” and the path is “wp-content/plugins/ditty-news-ticker/inc/static/js/swiped-events.min.js”.

    Let me know if this helps.

    that seems to do it!
    I put into the exclude section
    swiped-events.min.js,
    ditty-news-ticker.min.js
    and its running in incognito mode.

    Thanks so much and this should help others using async with the ticker.

    Sadly today it is not working ( cache must not have cleared) and only if I turn off async does the ticker run WITH emojis.
    If I have put things in wrong, please let me know. The ticker is running without being in incognito….but with async turned on and using the above js excluded scripts…nothing runs.

    Have tried again today….using full paths…and still ticker wont run if async is enabled….checked in incognito….but if I turn async off..the script runs fine.
    Thanks for any help.

    What are you using to turn on/off async and what do you use for cacheing? I’ll test it out locally and see if I can replicate the issue.

    The async plugin is turned off internally…just a button. Cacheing is autoptimize and rank math…I have cleared the cache in both….but if I turn async back on in the plugin settings…the ticker disappears.

    I did some testing and you’ll need to disable async on jQuery as well as the news ticker scripts. The tickers are loaded in the footer and throw and if jQuery isn’t loaded by that time an error occurs. This would happen with any other jQuery loaded directly into the html of your site as well.

    Are you using this plugin for your async? https://wordpress.org/plugins/async-javascript/

    If so, go to the settings and select “Exclude” in the jQuery section. That should resolve the issue.

    yes that is the plugin and I think that has resolved the issue. Its running now with async turned on. Now, if only we could solve the emoji issue on the teachyoutosew site….still wont save emojis in the ticker but does save them in wordpress pages.
    Do you have a link for donations for great support?

    (@metaphorcreations)

    Great, good to hear! There is a donations link added to the plugin description within your Plugins page on your site. I appreciate the offer!

    Hi the plugin RSS (licensed) don’t working for me, I have installed Async-javascript and I have excluded the jQuery but don’t work.

    The site has maintance mode the url http://www.carabinierisnc.it

    @gianvito Did you exclude the following as well?

    The id of the script is “ditty-news-ticker”, the path is “wp-content/plugins/ditty-news-ticker/inc/static/js/ditty-news-ticker.min.js”.

    There’s also a swiped events script that is used for touch enabled swipes. Id is “swiped-events” and the path is “wp-content/plugins/ditty-news-ticker/inc/static/js/swiped-events.min.js”.

    I’m unable to view your site to see if there is something else going on.
