I have the news ticker installed and article titles show up, but not the content. It seems that the ticker is adding a line return or paragraph break after the article title, so the text is falling out of the visible area.
I copied the template (Content King) settings instructions to set it up.
It's at www.misterrestoration.ca/newsite
if you need to have a look.
Other thought: Actually the template is being weird - the home menu just showed up on it's own, when it was hidden before, I didn't change anything. Also the arrows are set to on in the module but they're not showing. Hate computers.
