This module allows you to display an up-down scroller that pauses between each message! The scroller is displayed in a module position. The look of the scroller is completely styled using external CSS, including the dimensions.
Very Important: This module makes use of the Pausing up-down Scroller plugin plugin. So please make sure you have installed this plugin too for this module to work.

Very Important: You must install the latest version of the Pausing up-down Scroller plugin for this module to work.
It would be nice to have only one installation package instead of two (module & plugin).
It also appears that the plugin settings for height and width do not work...instead I found it's set in the pausing_up_down_scroller.css file (line 26).
I would still give it a 5 star rating since these issues weren't very critical (IMO).
Basically for a newbie like me this is just what I needed, practical but really nice looking and smooth.
The developer answered my wuestion on his forum on the same day. That my friends is awesome!
I highly recommend this module.
Good work! Thank you for this excellent extension.
This text scroller modules needs to be used with the plugin also provided by the developer.
Simply install both and puclish your plugin and module. Go to module and set your text and publish.
Very easy and looks great on the website.
Thank you veru much!!
