Newsticker

zentoolsIf you use Zentools please post a review at the Joomla! Extensions Directory.

I have this in the Grid 17 position on csbuildingservices.branchoutwebsites.com but the module row is very tall. I just want a thin red band across the page, with the ticker appearing on it. Am I doing something wrong?

Also is it possible for the 'Pretext' to appear on the left rather than above?

Looking at that page its a case of tweaking the css of the module and that position row

try adding

#grid17 .owl-carousel .owl-item {0 30px 0px 0}
#grid17 .zentools .zt-item {margin:0;}
#grid17 .moduletable {margin-bottom: 0;padding: 0;}
#grid5wrap .zen-spotlight {padding: 15px 0 0;}

I think you just need to recreate the master css.

That will make it display as desired.

That looks better. The preview text is still above though. How do you recreate the master CSS file?

Under the style tab in the zentools admin. No need for custom css as it wil work as is.

Thanks

I now have a nearly working Newsticker! It's just still a bit too deep above the Ticker. Also, some of the lettering that scrolls is cropped on the lower side. Is there a possibility of tweaking the css?

Great - so in your custom.css you can add this:

#grid5wrap {padding-top:0}
.zt-ticker .zt-title a {padding:0 0 10px}

Then in the zentools settings change item_margin to 0 and either recreate the master css if that suits all other instances of the module or select the custom.css and then click create custom.css.

Thanks

on the module settings -> theme tab I changed bottom margin to 0. Was that correct?

I couldn't find a setting called item_margin anywhere

Yes sorry that it. Did you then click create master css or custom css?

That's better thanks.

There's just a tiny bit where the bottom of the letters (g etc) are cropped off. Is it possible to tweak that?

Also, what's the best way to send feedback about your awesome support service?
