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.

    I was reviewing the comments and I want to add a clarification note: you can insert news items into the ticker HTML code when the page is generated and then the Twitter feed will be added after them. This is possible.

    For example, using a server side scripting language such as PHP, when the page is generated, you can grab the latest posts and add them to the ticker HTML code. Then when the ticker is initialized, it will grab the Twitter feed and display it after the existing items.

    However, you cannot load and display both RSS and Twitter feeds at the same time.

    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,

    Almatareed www.almatareed.org/vb

    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.

    My questions are : (1) Can i implement it to my phpdolphin pages? (it is php social share software) (2) I want to use this news via 3 separate twitter accounts, can i use them all at the same time? (One of them is my twitter account, two of them official newpapers accounts. Thank you.

    (1) You will have to contact the developer of phpdolphin and ask him more info about that. What the ticker needs to be installed is to add the HTML code and to add the folder with the assets files (CSS, JS, PHP). If you can add custom HTML, CSS and JS files in phpdolphin, then it should work ok.

    (2) The ticker supports loading Twitter data from a single twitter account at a time, you cannot load from multiple accounts at the same time, unfortunately. For that, you will need to modify the PHP code that retrieves data from the Twitter API but that requires some programming knowledge.

    Hey, i may be missing something… but can i pass a JSON data into a ticker ?

    let’s say i have a data in possession that i can present as json to a ticker? i do not want to create RSS file which than being processed by 3rd party services into json back to ticker.

    is this something that is available and i just don’t see/understand it ? thanks!

    The ticker doesn’t currently have JSON loading, only RSS and Twitter loading. But I have added JSON support too now. Please use the contact form on my profile page to send me a message and I will reply with the new JS file and instructions on how to set it up.

    Once everything is ready, I will make an update to the online files as well.

    Hi. I understand that Google have changed their Feed API. Is there an update that will fix this. My RSS feed is no longer showing.

    I have replaced the JS file per your instructions as I was using LoadType ‘process’. It still isn’t working. Have you got any other suggestions? URL of feed is correct so I’ve run out of ideas.

    The feed is loading and displaying well on my end. Can you please test again and tell me if you still have a problem.

    Thank you. It must be our internal network or proxy server that is preventing it. So long as it is working externally, that’s fine. Thank you for you advice and support :)

    No problem at all. Just one last thing: it could be a cache issue as well. You could try to clear the browser cache and test again to be sure that the latest files are loading and not the old ones from the cache.

    If you have any other problems or questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at any time.

    A new update is live:

    - Added support for loading data using a JSON feed.

    Hello! I’m working on adding your ticker to a website and I would like to have more than one instance of it on the front page for different RSS feeds. Is that possible without placing the second instance in an iframe? If so, how can I make it happen?

    You can assign a different theme to each ticker and it is not difficult to do so.

    I have put the CSS code of each theme in a separate file as to make the loading more efficient and not load the code of all 15 themes when only one is used. So, if you have two tickers and want to use two different themes, first make sure you include both the theme CSS files in the head:

    <link href="modern-ticker/themes/theme1/theme.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet">
    <link href="modern-ticker/themes/theme2/theme.css" type="text/css" rel="stylesheet">

    Then, in the file of the second theme, you need to prefix the id of your second ticker element so that the styles only apply to your second ticker. There are not many styles and it is not difficult to do:

    #ticker-2.modern-ticker {
    }
    #ticker-2 .mt-label {
    }
    #ticker-2 .mt-news {
    }
    ...
    #ticker-2 .mt-prev, #ticker-2 .mt-next {    
    }
    ...
    

    Make sure you apply the id well to all the styles. I have included a few examples above.

    That is all there is to it. If you have any issues, send me a contact email and tell me which theme are you using for the second ticker and I will reply back with the modified file for you to just include in the page.

    I will also look into making this process of having multiple themes on the page easier in a future update.

    Thanks so much for the help! I’ll be working on it some more over the weekend, and I should be able to make those adjustments. Code isn’t my strength, but I can figure most things out if I have the right clues. Once I saw your previous response it made perfect sense. Thanks again!

    You’re welcome! And if you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.

    Can I see the documentation first?

    Sure, you can preview the documentation here: http://creativetier.com/guides/modern-news-ticker

    Hi – I was examining an Atlassian Marketplace product called News Ticker (https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.unlimax.confluence.plugin.news-ticker/server/overview) and when I examined the code I found your application is at it’s core. I’m curious if this is an authorized use of according to your terms and conditions? I’ve been asked to evaluate the legitimacy of the application on the Atlassian Marketplace for acquisition and installation into our Confluence environment and wanted to confirm that macro isn’t using unlicensed software.

    Many Thanks! Bryan

    Thank you for informing me. That is an unauthorized use of my project. My news ticker is exclusive to CodeCanyon and there is no license that would allow redistribution. They are illegally using it on that marketplace.

    I will contact Atlassian support and Envato as well and inform them about this illegal use. Hopefully, it will get taken down.

    Again, thank you for taking the time to let me know about it.

    A new update was implemented, version 2.0 is live.

    I made a series of updates to the file structure, JS and CSS code, example files, guide. Among other changes, I added version numbering, feed error messages and PHP alternatives to load RSS and JSON files.

    For a complete list of changes, see the Updates section on the project page.
