Installed successfully, but cannot get the height and width settings to have any effect, whether you set them in the module itself, or in the plugin css. Any suggestions?

Thanks

Hi,

Sorry for the late reply.

Yes, you set the width and height using the tag "width" and "height".

Details here: How to use the "Pausing up-down Scroller" plugin #5 and #6
http://www.kksou.com/php-gtk2/Joomla/Pausing-up-down-Scroller-plugin.php#how_to_use

You can also set it in the .css file "pausing_up_down_scroller.css" located in the folder: plugins/content/pausing_up_down_scroller/pausing_up_down_scroller

Hi ... love your plugin/module ...

My problem is that I am trying to get 2 instances of the module playing on my website, one in a wide single line scroller toolbar, and another in a narrow sidebar module. The display for each module is setup using different custom css code in the pscroller css file.

Each module displays perfectly when only the one selected is published.

However when I turn on the toolbar module, the sidebar module changes its format height and width to that of the toolbar module.

How do I get the 2 modules playing simultaneously - without one affecting the display properties of the other ...

I have setup different pscroller css code and id's for each module ... but this does not seem to work.

Your help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hi,

I can help, but you have to help me help you.

Can you please set up 3 test pages:
1) The first page containing only the toolbar.
2) The second page containing only the sidebar.
3) The third page containing both toolbar and sidebar (the one you said that's not working).

Please give me the url of the 3 pages so that I can do a view source and see what's the problem. (most likely it's the css)

Hi,

Can you please email me the complete tag that you've used? Think it's due to some characters within your tag.

Hi,

It might be conflicts with your other plugins or modules.

To ascertain this, install a fresh install of Joomla somewhere on your site, then install just this plugin and see if it works. This will allow you to see if the plugin work on your machine at all.

Hello
I downloaded your Pausing up-down Scroller
Worked perfectly. So I purchased the copyright removal. Downloaded the file - Deleted the previous version and Uploaded new versions of the Plugin and Module
Now it does not pick up any style at all .
Only the code shows on the page.
Please advise at your earliest convenience.
Thank you
Marc
