Wouaah! On en rêvait, Panos l’a fait! :P C’est très amusant. Merci, petit prince du code magique. Bon dimanche. Gros bisou ♥
If I were a fan of blinking, scrolling messages, I’d be shaking both your hands right about now. But I have a headache and must lie down. ;-)
It’s great that you keep on offering us new opportunities. Some like ’em and some not – but it’s great to know that they are available for wp.com.
@lilmaouz: Il y aura plus! Bon dimanche etc. etc.!
@Jennifer: If you’re not a fan, then some of the blinkety-blinks I’ll publish next might give you a headache!
@NG: Yes, I wouldn’t ever use all that stuff, but they’re all gadgets I’ve seen users ask for (either in the forum or here).
I know what you mean….
form function phrase
words in sequences
I’ll try once
a quotation from Samuel Beckett about form, chaos, and art.
27 Nov. post. —Just playing around with the way scrolling words add an element of time to ‘print’ in a way different from spoken words.
Ah. Sorry, I’m not in shape…

Best Tips..I Like it
Hi and Happy New Year!
@harry: Yes, unfortunately most of these things have a limit to the number of characters they can accommodate. Changing the dimensions changes the overall size only (if the widget is resizable).
@arif & RS: You’re welcome!
ok panos thank you
You’re welcome, Harry – sorry I don’t have a solution.
Is there any way to get a scrolling message across the header in the INove theme? Thanks for all your great work! I’ve been able to use a lot of your stuff.
No, because it can’t be exactly positioned – see here:
Best thing you can do is put it up top in the sidebar.
Thanks your response, I appreciate all the stuff you’ve posted on here, I didn’t even know a lot of it was possible!
For some reason the whole message isn’t displayed, only part of it is, is there a character limit or something?
You’re welcome. Yes, most of these gadgets have a character limit. Which one did you try?
I tried LCD 1, about to try the rest to see which has the longest character limit!
When I try LCD 3, only the first letter of each word shows up (on iNove), do you know why?
LCD1 seems to be limited to 18 characters, LCD3 to 22. LCD2 seems unlimited. Didn’t try the other three.
As for your second question, I didn’t know but I do now: it displays capitals only.
