Works half


Posted on 03 July 2013

Encountered exactly the same as mentioned in the previous preview from "gabe". Developers have not fixed small problems after 1.5 years which made it unusable for me. Tested latest version for J2.5


I was looking for such little thing. I am using shape_5 vertex template, so... for the second time - shape_5 proved they can made very good product. News tickers may be used as its name suggest: you can put up to ten links (HTML code) into this module and publish it whenever you want (tanks god - vertex template have plenty of positions:) This module looks very good, and is very easy to configure. In a very small surface you can have 10 titles of your selected news. God job! P.S. I don't really understand some previous negative comments... In my opinion these people can't read the description of this module / or they can't add a link to this module :) For me - everything works fine.


Just what I needed


Posted on 23 November 2011

Don't I love it when software is installed and works first time. And it does what it says. Just what I was looking for. A nice piece of useful software. Congrats to the development team. Also my gratitude.


OK but has issues


Posted on 01 October 2011

This extension is OK but you can't put html code in the module on a 1.7 site. Questions about this issue have gone unanswered in the support forums. Also if you only have 1 line of text, the second line will be filled in automatically with the developers info... even if you try to delete it. (have to modify the xml as a workaround;) Mootools version doesn't seem to work either. Could be an excellent extension if everything worked or was at least trying to be fixed.



If you don't care to use code then this is a great text display.


I searched high and low for a decent text fader and this one finally did the trick!



It worked really well and the CSS was easy to adjust. very simple and easy to use.



Thank you!


Easy to use Text Ticker


Posted on 03 July 2011

An easy to use module to have rotating text of your own. Add the text you want to display, and it rotates the text for you.



Pros - easy to use and configure

Cons - none, so far


What a great simple module


Posted on 03 July 2010

I spent half a day trying to get traditional news tickers to show line of text from articles inserting the module into a third module. All fail at that position on my template. Therefore I turned to look for TEXT SCROLLING, finding S5 Text Ticker.

The fact that you can insert inline CSS style and HTML took me to achieve more than what I originally needed.

It would be fantastic if the developers can upgrade this mod to be capable of playing more than one instance of the module on the same article.

Thanks.


I chose this ticker, because I wanted to be able to type in promotions or important news for my homepage. It works great! You can even use inline CSS to style the text or use HTML to link text to articles. Very useful! Thanks!


Title VERY misleading


Posted on 30 May 2010

The title is very misleading and this module is in the wrong section of the extension listing if you ask me.

It doesn't display news it displays manually typed in text.

Rename it to Text Ticker and then this module will do what it says.



Might be useful for some other applications but not for news display.



The fade effect is a bit on the "not so good" side too. It fades in nicely to a point but when it switches to the next section it pops up without an effect. So you get a fade out -pop in effect instead of a more stylish fade in - fade out.



If you have an image to display this way it's a bit of an eye sore.


Just what I needed


Posted on 15 April 2010

Does exactly what it says on the tin!

I wanted a ticker I could use to highlight various different articles (not all from the same category as most other tickers). The HTML facility achieves this brilliantly.

Mail functions are now sent via the default Joomla mail functions and not the module's own php mail() calls. This means the module will send mail based on the settings in the Joomla global configuration for better mail delivery. November 21, 2009 - Updates: We have a option which enables a spam box which asks the user to enter a spam protection code. If the code is entered incorrectly it will not submit the form. Also, the email address where the form is sent to remains null until the very end when all parameters are complete and it has passed all spam verifications; once it meets these requirements it then applies the email address that is entered in the backend of the module. We have also added a params in the backend of the module where the administrator can enter "blocked words". If any of these words appear in the content of the email it will not be sent.
