This plugin does exactly what I need. The implementation is a bit unusual, in that you add separate "messages" that are to be included in a particular "group," but if you know HTML, then it's easier to just create one message that includes all of the lines you want to appear in your marquee, all you need to do is add a <br /> tag at the end of each line (or two tags if you want double spaced lines). The ability to add HTML also allows you to add links to other pages, which is really helpful. One thing I would like to see is the ability to remove that gap between the last message item and the first one when it scrolls back up again. That is, I would like to see a continuous circular scrolling with no gap between the last item and the first item. Second, it would be nice to be able to add more than 8 groups (marquees). Each year I create a post for an annual event, and in the post I use two marquees. Because the contents of the marquees changes from year to year, that means after five years, I will have run out of groups to use, unless I convert the marquees from an older year into just straight HTML, but that eats up a lot of room on the page. Lastly, there's very little response on the support page, so hopefully you won't need any help.

Works great. Wish you could add in the time settings to run in a specific time frame. 🙂

Thank you for the free plugin. I like it and it does what it says. Settings could be more advanced and editor for the messages could be better, I mean if you can edit there messages and using html code a editor with that future would be useful.
