  1. Hi, I have have seen a similar scrolling gadget that welcomes all new followers. It is set to automatically pull from the follower list every time someone follows the blog. Is there a way to tweak this code to pull from the follower list instead of the recent posts? Thanks.



  2. hi instead of text how could we put image of something and some of my new post i dont want to scroll so how can i remove that from scrolling


  3. I have tried and tried but this still will not work on my blog. I still cannot get it to work. I followed your instructions, what is it that I might be missing? I added my blog name and address as instructed and after reading and rereading the code time and again I still can’t figure out why it will not work.
    I like the idea, but it isn’t working for me on blogger.


  4. @ Mitts – It must be conflicting with something else on your blog, unless you can figure out what mabye this one is not for you.

    Oh gosh I hope you still read comments on older posts.
    Thanks for this tutorial it was exactly what I needed, except now of course I would like to tweek this a bit more (I always do, sorry).
    See I have a blog in the crafts and home decor niche, so my posts are always picture heavy. Therefor I have set my settings to maximize the number of posts to load at once to four. But alas that means that on my label page only four titles in the list are displayed too and then people have to go to ‘more posts’ is there a way to change the html, that on a label search page only, blogger will display a larger number of links?
    Hope you get what I mean.
    Thanks for a wonderful blog and an even better service you provide!


  6. I added it and it just doesn’t work right. The names of the posts can be seen but they are scrolling sideways and there’s just this empty space above it.


  7. @ Bard Girl – It could be effected by something else on the blog, some people seem to be having trouble with it.I’m afraid it might not be suited to your blog.


  8. useful trick.. thanks…


  9. I did it but the image box is blank. Got the scroll on my blog posts thou! So now what do I do to get empty image box off or is it suppose to have my blog pics?
