Nice work. Easy to install and configure on 2.5.6 and the results are polished and professional. If only I could get the damned thing to scroll! :-)

I'm sure there's a conflict with another module but I'll be darned if I can find it.

This in now way detracts from the fact that this is a slick piece of work

At last...I found a scroller that would install into a breadcrumb position and is really simple to edit. Didn't find out that you have to have several items to make it scroll, otherwise it will be static. Not sure why, but i get a black flash where the scroller is while my site loads up. Need to look into that. But apart from that, really happy so far.

Hi. Unfortunatelly this module cuts off all national fonts typed in 'Item title' field so it is usable for English language only.

I have two browsers side-by-side. The scroller/ticker runs with Firefox, but is just stationary with Internet Explorer 8. So if your users is using IE8, this module doesn't work.

I also wanted to have the ticker running the entire length of my webpage. However, if you adjust the "Ticker Width" to more than 518 pixels, the ticker stops scrolling. 518 pixels is just half the span of a webpage.

In the "Add Ticker/Scroller Items", if you skip one item, the ticker gets broken and stops scrolling.

The various options available like changing font colors, speed, and opacity, are nice.

However, it would have been much nicer if you can just select items from your Section or Category to scroll. Instead of typing them manually by hand. If you are planning to use this as a scroller for your latest news, it will eventually become too tiring, as you have to cut-and-paste the news on the item list one-by-one all the time.

- Yes, the maximum width of the ticker is 518 pixel.

This is a great extension. I was wondering if it's possible to also customize the font itself (possibly have the option to chose between a few webfonts), size, weight... That would make it perfect.
