Hello! I’ve purchased and installed your news ticker. It’s working well, but I have a few questions. It’s not processing any of the html inside of the a tags. For example, I have the structure like this
  • News Source: This is the news title Wrapping than wrapping that text in a span, it’s outputting the “ ” as text. Also, if the news title has quotation marks, it shows the html entity for it rather than the quotation marks.

    Secondly, is there a way to randomize the items rather than appearing in the same order each time?

    Thanks!

  • Hi. Sorry for the bug with the HTML content in the anchor tags. This is an error that I already fixed and will be included in the next update that I make. Until then, please use the form on my profile page to send me an email and I will reply with the new JavaScript file that has this fixed.

    Regarding randomization, unfortunately there is no option to display the news items randomly. The ticker simply displays the news in the order that they are written in and then loops from the start.

    A new update was implemented:

    • Improved the typing effect functionality. HTML tags inside the typed text are now supported so that the typed text can have different styles.
    • Fixed an error that was causing the typing effect not to display properly when switching back and forth fast between news items.

    I would like to use this News Ticker to span the entire width of the screen with a screen resolution of 1920 or higher. Will this Ticker work with the “scroll” effect with monitor resolutions 1920 or higher so the first list item is automatically appended to the end of the last list item for one continuous slide with no gap in between?

    Yes, that is how it works, when the first item goes off the screen, it is appended at the end, so the scrolling looks continuous. This is the ‘scrollType: “continuous”’ setting (you will need to have enough news items to cover the available space).

    Additionally, you can use the ‘scrollType: “discontinuous”’ setting to make the news one long line and when the line finishes completely on the left, it restarts from the right again.

    Hi,

    When I select the scroll effect and set the width in the style sheet to “width: 100%” and I shorten the “li” items to the sample below, the scroll does not immediately append the next list item to the last. Instead of a seamless scroll effect, there is a gap between the next items. This also happens if I set the width to “width: 1280px”. Can you give this a try and let me know if it is a bug or if I am doing something wrong. Your screen resolution needs to be 1280 or higher.

    Thanks

  • I made a test and I understand what you mean. This happens because there is a lot of space available and not enough text content. The first li is appended at the end once it completely goes offscreen on the left side. And that is why empty space can be seen at the end, because there is not enough text there until the first li is appended at the end of the list. There is not much that the ticker can do when there is more space than text, other than duplicating news items but this isn’t currently built into the functionality of the scroll.

    You can try making the ticker narrower or adding more news items, if possible. Or you can use the ‘scrollType: “discontinuous”’ setting in a case like this, where the items will repeat after all have been shown.

    It hasn’t been requested yet, but if this would be something needed, I can try and add this functionality to the scroll effect in a future update, of duplicating news items in cases where there is too much space and not enough text.

    Hi – can you have multiple feeds in the ticker? We want to display latest post titles as well as twitter feeds.

    Thanks

    Unfortunately, it cannot load both RSS and Twitter feeds at the same time. If this is a requested feature, I can develop it for a future update but this is the first time that somebody mentions it. I’ll keep it in mind though.

    Hi..just brought the plugins.. how to install it on osclass website???

    I haven’t worked with Osclass and am not familiar with how their system functions. The ticker is a standalone HTML, CSS and JavaScript project and what is needed is to simply follow the guide and add the ticker code and files to your page.You can either contact them and ask for more information or search online about how this can be done on the Osclass website.

    Dear Creative Tier, i’ve used Modern News ticker in this website http://www.caiveneto.it/ and if i check jquery console i obtain this error:

    This API is no longer available.

    i fetch external RSS feeds, same error with another installation: http://www.purpledemo.com/headfeed/headfeedDE.html

    Can you help me?

    Looks like Google has closed down their Feed API and that is what is causing the problem: https://developers.google.com/feed/

    Normally, you can only load images and scripts from other domains. For all other things, such as an RSS file, you need to have permission written on that domain in order to be able to load from there. To bypass this restriction, the ticker was using a service, Google Feed API, that was taking the RSS file from the supplied link, transforming it into a JSON file and sending it to the ticker, which was then displaying the data. But now, this service looks to have been closed by Google.

    This is the behavior for the [loadType: “process”] setting. You can use [loadType: “direct”] but you will need to have loading access from the domain on which the RSS file is located. More information about this is explained in the guide, in the “4.2.4. Loading an RSS or Atom file” section. You can read through it if you want to know a bit more about this.

    I will search for alternative services to the Google Feed API and I will also include a new setting for people to input their own custom link to an RSS processing services that they want to use, if they prefer something other than the default one/s.

    I will update the marketplace files once the modifications are ready but it might take a couple of days for the update to be approved. Please send me a message using the form on my profile page, https://codecanyon.net/user/creativetier/profile#contact , so that I have your email and when the update is ready, I will email you directly the modifications so that you don’t have to wait for the update to be approved on the marketplace.

    The update is ready and has been submitted for review. Once approved, the files will be available online. I have already sent the new JS file to the people that have asked directly on email. If there is someone else that would like the file before the update is approved, please email me.

    ok, i’ve send now my e-mail. Many thanks

    Hello,

    I’m using your news ticker successfully since I purchased it last year. It was displaying rss news feed in Arabic from BBC Arabic website.

    I’ve changed anything in the code recently but it stopped to display anything.

    I tried news rss from CNN but nothing changed.

    I wonder if you could help!

    Many thanks,

    The initialization code looks ok. But it’s not just about that, maybe there is another problem on the page, maybe there is an error shown in the console. I will need to look over an implementation on the page to give you more feedback. The loading works fine in the test I made for you, if it doesn’t work on your site then there must be an issue originating from there.

    The ticker was working well until a couple of weeks ago and suddenly stoped to display the BBC rss feed, I haven’t changed anything in the configuration of the ticker and uploaded the new JS file today as recommended but still no luck!

    I will need to look over an implementation to give you more feedback. If not, you will have to make tests and see where the problem originates from. I showed you in the above example that the ticker loads the feed well. You will need to make tests on your page directly to try to find where the problem originates from on your page.

    The new update is live:

    • The Google Feed API that the ticker was using has been closed recently. I have removed it and have added 2 other RSS processing services, one as default and the other as an alternative. Anyone who is using RSS loading (width loadType: “process”) should update to the new version of the JS file. All that you need to do is to replace the old “jquery.modern-ticker.min.js” file from the “modern-ticker/js” folder with the new one.

    Thank you for your continuous support which is really appreciated. It sounds that the new changes you introduced don’t fix the problem in vbulletin software forums. The problem could be fixed on some platforms but not on all software!

    The new modifications are working very well now, many thanks! After I uploaded the new JS file I forgot to delete the cache! When I deleted the cache the new effects took place and the news ticker is working again now.

    Honestly, this news ticker is the best purchase I made for my website over the past years, the support is excellent, highly recommended ticker, thanks to Creative Tier!

    Thank you very much, I am happy to see that everything is working well for you now.

    Hi I’ve been using this ticker for some time, but recently it has failed. The news feed doesn’t come in. I haven’t changed my code, and I’ve reverted to your original code and that too doesn’t bring in the feed.

    I’ve used your original rss-atom page code, and that doesn’t currently work. Can you help asap please.

    Please see the latest update entry on the description page and update the JS file to the new one.
