I hope this email finds you well.

Unfortunately, the ticker stopped working again today, any suggestions?




The ticker on your page loads and displays well on my end.

When exactly is happening for you? Is the feed not loading? Try to open the browser tools (F12) and see if any error is showing in the browser console from the ticker.

Great script, thanks for all your hard work. Had initial issues as I have ‘jquery-1.11.3.min.js’ also running on my page.

Just to help is others who might be experiencing issues, the conflict is easliy resolved using the ‘noConflict’ command.

Simply change …..

<script type=”text/javascript”> jQuery(document).ready(function() {

            effect: "scroll",
            scrollType: "continuous",
            scrollStart: "inside",
            scrollInterval: 20,
            transitionTime: 500,
            linksEnabled: true,
            pauseOnHover: true,
            autoplay: true

TO …....

<script type=”text/javascript”> var $j = jQuery.noConflict(); jQuery(document).ready(function() {

            effect: "type",
            typeInterval: 10,
            displayTime: 4000,
            transitionTime: 300,
            linksEnabled: true,
            pauseOnHover: true,
            autoplay: true

Sorry id people already knew this, however took me about 2 hours to figure out !!

If you already have jQuery on the page, it is best to simply not add it again in the ticker head code. Simply remove this line:

<script src="modern-ticker/js/jquery-3.2.1.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

(But make sure that your jQuery is added before the ticker head code.)

This is mentioned in the top instructions in each template file as well as in the guide. Sorry if it was not obvious enough.

This is one of the more common problems that people encounter but I am not sure how to make it easier to see the instructions.

I did actually see that however the ticker would not load correctly with the “” version for some reason. Thanks for the feedback though.

Hi there, thanks for the plug-in. Wondering if there’s a way of showing the description of the rss feeds?

Hi. That is not possible right now but it is something that I want to add in a future update, a setting to control what fields to display from the feed.

But you can send me a quick email, using either the contact email from the guide or the contact form on my profile page, and I can make some modifications for you and reply with the new JS file that will display the description as well.

Just tell me how you want it to display, if use a separator character, what loadType are you using and, if possible, the link to the RSS feed would be helpful for testing.

Is this styling fully customizable with CSS? If so, I’m surprised you don’t mention that.

Yes, the styling is all customizable with CSS. I think that is something standard and also noticeable from the different themes and I didn’t mention it specifically in the description.

Hi, after the ticker working fine for months, i’ve suddenly started getting this error:

newsticker.jquery.js:237 Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token : jquery.modern-ticker.min.js:2 Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property ‘item’ of null at Object.success (jquery.modern-ticker.min.js:2) at i (jquery-3.2.1.min.js:2) at Object.fireWith [as resolveWith] (jquery-3.2.1.min.js:2) at A (jquery-3.2.1.min.js:4) at XMLHttpRequest.<anonymous> (jquery-3.2.1.min.js:4)

Any ideas?

No problem, if you have any other issues, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Thanks – just one other tweak i had to make was to jquery.modern-ticker.min.js was to change to (the page with the ticker on is loaded via SSL and the http method broke it because of mixed content).

That’s true, another client reported a similar thing and I have looked into it as well and already updated the link in my files. This will be included in the marketplace files in the next update that I make.

Please contact me and give a refund. Accidentally purchased the wrong version of this plugin. I will proceed to purchase the WordPress version but I need to be refunded for the accidental purchase of the JQuery version.

If you accidentally purchased the wrong version, you have to make a refund request. You have more information about that here:

Hey dear, Can You please tell me if there is any way to change the icon hover and the feed hover colors? That would be very helpful…

I meen making 1 line\row with News tag, 2nd row is the news (anchor with ticking news) 3rd row is with the buttons, I ment separating the 3 divs that hold the tag\buttons\ticker to 3 columns when I switch the width to phone width 320-610px… Is it possible?

That is not possible, unfortunately. The ticker was made to work in a single line. However, I don’t think that there are many phones nowadays at resolutions of 320px. And even at small dimensions such as 610px, the news are visible well with both label and controls on the sides.

I hope they will be visible, cant find a normal way to display the website on a virtual device. Thank You for all the help! You are awesome!


Thanks for the great work please, I need the RTL version

Hi. There is no other version of the project. All files are included in the downloadable archive. And all available features are either shown in the preview or mentioned in the description.

Hi i paid for this news ticker but I need to know how to make it run on all width of my web?

Hi. I see that your account was created this month but the “purchased” tag is not displaying next to your name. Can you please send me the purchase code?

The ticker is, by default, extending to all of the available width. It has max-width set to 1000px, which can be changed or removed.

Also, please send me a link to where I can look over your implementation so that I can give you specific instructions.

Just a quick question, can this be configured to where you can make the label (where it says ‘news’ in the demo) clickable (to where it takes you to another page)? Thanks.

Yes, you just add an anchor tag (<a>) to the label text and you can link it to another page.

A new update was implemented, version 2.1 is live:

  • Fixed an issue that was causing the preloader not to show properly in some browsers when set to load a feed.
  • Fixed an issue that was causing the news items not to display properly when loading feeds and “linksEnabled” set to false.
  • Modified the theme CSS files so that the styles have higher specificity to make it less likely to be overwritten by other page styles.
  • Fixed an issue that was causing the RSS feed not to load properly when using the “rss2json” service from a page on HTTPS.
  • Other small modifications and improvements.

Hi, It’s possible to view a post category instead of single posts?

This is the jQuery version. Are you asking about the WP version? I responded to your comment in the WP version message board. Let me know there if you are referring to the “Posts” feed or to the “Add post(s)” modal.

hi i purchase news-tiker , but my website is rtl, this cause news-ticker not working

In what sense is it not working? Does it have any kind of error? Or are you just saying that you cannot use it since your site is RTL?

The ticker does not have RTL support. RTL is not mentioned in the preview page or in the description.

aha thanks, i hope if you can add RTL support

Hi, Does the plugin supports RTL alignment?

Unfortunately, the ticker does not support RTL at the moment.

Hi, I accidentally bought the news ticker plugin because I thought it was a WordPress plugin :(

You can make a refund request if you mistakenly purchased the project. There is a WP version of the ticker at Modern News Ticker for WordPress but it does not support RTL alignment.

Hello, Just bought this yesterday. Nice plugin.

Having problems styling this…how can I remove the bullet point?

Tried .mt-news ul li {list-style-type: none !important;} and can’t remove it.

Also, a couple suggestions: 1. Adding the post category feature is great, but would be nice if you could add by tag as well.

2. Is it possible to add a section to add custom CSS to override styling?


Hi. I have responded to your message posted on comments page of the WP version of the ticker. Please see the response there relating to the WP files. As for the suggestions that you mentioned, you can see the responses to them at the end of this message.

I will post a similar response here relating to the jQuery files, which are slightly different (contain the CSS theme code separated in files), in case someone here is interested in the answer to this question as well:

To have more control over the appearance of the bullets, I have created them as custom ”.png” images. They can be removed by simply editing the ticker CSS files.

First, the modifications for the ticker theme CSS file. For example, theme 1, which can be found in “modern-ticker/themes/theme1.css”.

Go to the following styles and either remove or comment out the bullet images for default and for mouseover (line 25):

.modern-ticker .mt-news a {
    /*background-image: url("images/bullet-505050.png");*/
.modern-ticker .mt-news a:hover {
    /*background-image: url("images/bullet-over-fafafa.png");*/

The last thing that is needed is to remove the empty space where the bullet was, which is a left padding.

This change is in the main CSS file, which can be found in “modern-ticker/css/modern-ticker.css”.

Simply change the left padding from 20px to 10px (line 74):

.modern-ticker .mt-news a {
    padding: 0 10px 0 10px;

The bullets should now be gone. If you don’t see any difference, make sure to press Ctrl+F5 to clear the cache and refresh the page.

The suggestions that you mentioned refer to the WP version only:

1. I have made a note of the tags suggestion and I will look into it for the next update that I make to the WP ticker.

2. This is a viable option but as far as I know it is recommended that any overriding CSS by added to the theme CSS file. I will research more about it and if it is considered a good practice, I might add it in the next update as well.
