I just purchased JS Web Scroller and am trying to make it work for the first time. My issue is within the program's interface, though when I publish it does the same thing.
I'm creating a text-only vertical scroller. Its purpose is to display testimonials from my clients (formatted with HTML) about my business.
The length of each testimonial varies widely - from a couple of sentences to a couple of short paragraphs. One includes and ordered list (<ol>).
I set the scroller box for w=250px and h=450px, which I determined is large enough to display the longest testimonial.
What I'd prefer to accomplish is that one testimonial appears in full, then the next, etc. without shorter ones displaying part of the next one.
What is actually happening is that part of one is displayed at the bottom of the global box, then there's a pause, then it scrolls up and the rest of that one displays at the top of the box and part of the next one displays at the bottom, etc. In other words, it is breaking them at the wrong places. Sometimes nothing will scroll for a very long time and then the next one will come up.
Additionally, I'm using a sample of 7 items (I will have a set of 28 when it works right), and only the first 5 display, then it seems to try to show part of #6 and quickly jumps to #1 again.
I also note that the pagination is strange (I display pagination numbers) - what clicking a page number will do is inconsistent. Sometimes one brings up nothing and another one brings up part of a testimonial.
Alternatively, I'm also OK with continuous scrolling of each item, one after the other. If I do it that way, I don't want there to be big white spaces between them. I tried adjusting the padding, but that hasn't helped - there is still large white space after some of them.
I've played around with the HTML of each item - defining them in fixed-size DIV's, for instance, but I can't make it work.
What's going on? What else do I need to provide so you can help?
[UPDATE: After submitting this, I changed all of the items to plain text rather than HTML. It is still behaving the same way - including only being willing to display the first 5. Then it skips back to the first one. Since #6 was a particularly long one, I removed it to see if that helped. No effect. Still only the first 5.]
