Text Scroller
« on: 24 January 2012, 07:18 »
Good morning,
I was trying to activate the text scroller on a website, but apparently the text remains frozen (doesn't scroll). I linked it to an article ID and activated the textscroller in a user defined position. Do I need to include something in the article to trigger the action or am I missing something else?

I really would like to get this going, since it is a very nice extension that can be very useful for the website.

Thanks + Best regards

Gino

You probably have a JS error cased by some other script you are using. You can check with Firebug in Firefox.

Text Scroller uses Mootools, a JS framework used by Joomla itself. Some templates intentionally remove Mootools and include jQuery which may conflict with modules that use Mootools.

Mootools 1.2 is required. Stock Joomla 1.5 uses Mootools 1.12 and you must activate Mootools upgrade plugin if you use Joomla 1.5. It's mentioned in documentation.

Good morning and thank you for your reply. Mootools plugin is activated and mootools.js is present in /media/system/js. Still no joy. Do I need to load the library in index.php before it becomes activated?

I can't guess, post your URL and we will see what's wrong.

ok thanks. Can you tell me what country you reside in? Currently all countries except Belgium and The Netherlands are blocked due to recent hacker attacks..

If ALL the text is shown there is nothing to scroll..
Maybe you should make the viewing size for the scroller smaller?
Just my 2 sents ;)

You can set your viewing size for the scroller in module parameters. Set the width / height that suits your content and your site.

Hi..
I have been using this great Text Scrooler for months now with satisfaction.
However I got a little trouble with viewing it through a mobile (Samsung Galaxy S2) on my site.

I'm using the scroller at the top (logo), and when it looks fine at Explorer/PC it lookslike the scroller is showing in "full lenght" at mobile.. Like if the hight setting is being overruled somehow.

Take a look (with mobile phone) at www.Bryllupsmusik.info for yourself please, or I can post a picture later..

It looks fine on my iPhone, see attached.
Probably some CSS issue with Android.

I don't have any Android available to test. Maybe I could use an emulator to try to replicate the issue but frankly, this is a free product, not my support priority unless it's a paid job.

Yes, I know it's a free product - appreciate it alot thank you!
I donno how much to pay for a job like that..?

Since it works fine on both pc and iPhone we can hope for a solution from Andorid of course..

Again thank you for this fine free program!

Maybe you can help by finding an emulator and replicate the issue. Then post here which emulator to use.

Well at least I found a desent Android emulator ;)
After some search it seemed like the SDK package is prefered so I downloaded here (one package) http://www.addictivetips.com/windows-tips/download-google-android-emulator/

Read instructions or:
Download package and uninstall
Run the "Run_Emulator(with Boot Animation).exe" file
Turn of "Flight mode" via settings.
Even it does not show to work I can put in a link and see it at the "Google search" field.

"Unfortunately"?? there is no error on my site using this emulator tho ;(
