Great Module



Posted on 10 October 2017
Functionality
Works as advertised with many different options.
Ease of use
Easy to use.
Support
Excellent. The developer responds to emails quickly and is very responsive.
I used this to: I use this module on two websites; www.RoscoesChiliChallenge.com and www.NaplesGunSchool.com. The scrolling text calls attention exactly to the information and link I need it to.
Functionality
A truly complete and functional module. It is also very useful to use a link to an external RSS file, as well as web-based text documents.
Ease of use
Very Easy
I used this to: My website: www.palana.it
Owner's reply: Maurizio, thank you for your wonderful review & rating. Very kind indeed. I'm delighted we were able to work through your issue and get all your extensions to play nice with each other! Please reach out to me if I can be of any further assistance.
Functionality
This extension worked brilliantly, just what I wanted, until being upgraded to version 1.4.3.
Ease of use
Very simple.
Documentation
Some of the parameters are not well explained.
I used this to: Displaying latest news for the club. UNTIL the latest version (1.4.3) came along and expanded the depth of the text area beyond reasonable expectations. Setting the appropriate parameter had no affect.
Extension deleted.
Functionality
The scroll does not appear to work - just displays text as a big paragraph. I checked for a way to switch on the scroll but on as standard.
Ease of use
Good.
I used this to: I attempted to use this as a scrolling service level ticker. Shame it doesn't work for me, seems like a great module and it clearly has good reviews.
