Smooth scrolling and RT RokStories problem 3 years 5 months ago #9311

2 questions please.

1. I love this scroller (1.6), but it appears to start stop, start stop etc.. in a jerky way? is there anyway it can be improved to make it scroll more smoothly ?

2. Also, I'm using a RocketTheme template (Zephyr) with RokStories and when I add hot scroller to the same page - in a module position separate to RokStories - the main graphic disappears from RokStories itself. Not sure if this is a Hot scroller issue or a RokStories one, but I'll post on the RocketTheme forum about this also - hopefully to find a solution.

Any help you can give would be appreciated
Thx

What do you meant by jerky way? Can we see that?

Yes, here.

By 'jerky' I mean that the scroll movement isn't so smooth, which makes reading the text more difficult.

Also, I've noticed that the issue with RT RokStories only happens when a user is logged in, which is even more strange ?

You can control scroll speed using module parameters. It looks to me that text scrolls to fast.

Yes, I've tried that. It's now set to 5, but making the scroll speed slower now seems to make the 'jerkiness' more pronounced and visible ie. it's not scrolling smoothly, which is bad from a reading point of view.
To get a better idea, check out this scroller HERE to see the difference between the two - this one actually runs much smoother and is easy on the eyes..
As I said, I like your scroller and it's just what I need, but if there's room for improvement than that can only be a good thing for you and your users I would have thought.

Also, re. my 2nd problem, I'm wondering if this is a conflict between Jquery and mootools - I found this info that could maybe help, which informs about the use of the jQuery.noConflict() function when running shared libraries etc.. just an idea worth checking. I've already tried disabling the 'Load JQuery' in the scroller settings - but this stops the scroller from working.

Thx so far..

You could try to disable jQuery everywhere (every module ,plugin, template) and then download latest version and reference it manually in index.php of template.Point is to have only one and just one reference to latest version. You can chack for that by viewing page source if that are more that one references <script type="text/javascript" src=......jquery.x.x.x.min.js"... that's bad.

jQuery + UI has 3 references 2 - script and 1 css
core: jquery.1.5.2.min.js
UI: jquery.ui.1.8.14.min.js

css: jquery.ui.1.8.14.css

in that case you don't need noConflict() , and you are sure that scroller is using right version .
