Great Plugin

Great plugin! I was wary of installing it because I thought it may be one of those 'Buy now' to avail of this feature plugins. Thankfully it isnt and it works great!

Sneaky Pricing Policy
By , for WP 4.4.2

So I bought the POSTS TICKER.

The page on the website says $13

You add it to the cart and it says $16

Then if you want to pay by PayPal it adds $2 = total $18

Or you can use "credits" where the minimum is $20

So in the end my $13 plugin cost $18.

It's a good plugin but suffers from sneaky and ripoff pricing! If you had said right from the price the true price I would have paid that happily, but your underhand attitude annoys me.

Nice but limited features in free version
By , for WP 4.4.2

I would give this plugin a higher rating because it's actually very well crafted, however, it doesn't support using post titles in the free version.

While the default (free) ticker type might be adequate for many people, you must hard-code the items in your ticker. If you want to display recent post titles, that's an add-on that costs money.

TO THE DEVELOPER: I hope you'll consider adding basic support for using post titles as an alternative to the default hard-coded ticker items. I do understand that advanced features like custom post type support, the ability to selectively choose categories, etc. are things that take your time and deserve to be paid for, but a basic post title display would make this much more useful for many WP users.

Ditty - some issues with cropping of theme
By , for WP 4.4.2

Really like the Ditty ticker. Handles a "stream" of images well. After some adjustments for timing it works without any jitter. One issue we have is in IE, with our custom theme. It crops the lower portion of the static header image.

Highly recommend.

I'm glad I went with this product when selecting a news aggregator. This developer responds to support tickets and keeps the product updated.

Good but not greaet
By , for WP 4.3.1

I've been searching for quite awhile now for a plugin that I can embed into the main menu of a client's website that will allow for a news ticker type feed. This plugin was FINALLY exactly what I needed and it looks great!... until I realized it won't show up in mobile =/

So it's a great plugin but I'm not able to configure the settings to have it show-up in a mobile menu as a drop down. So I gave it 4/5. If that's something you don't need yourself then it's probably a 5/5 plugin.

Support?
By , for WP 4.3.1

How do I get support for the paid Ditty Posts plugin? The comments on your blog page are closed.

The Ditty News plugin works, but when I activate the Ditty Posts plugin it breaks the theme (Armada by Dream Themes).

exactly what I was looking for
By , for WP 4.3.1

The free version of ditty ticker is exactly what I needed for a client's website; setting up a ticker item was done within a few minutes!
Clear, simple, yet customizable. Great.

I don't like the use of a ticker, but this one at least makes setting up a ticker being fun ;-)

Thanks for a great plugin.
