Widget Customizations

As I mentioned above this widget is fully customizable,you can also customizing it at your own just by reading the properties of the values such as numposts means number of posts.In above code I am highlighting some values which you can simply edit them.Also I highly recommend you that,done all the changes in our HTML Editor.With using the html editor you can simply customize this widget as you wish with watching preview of your chnages.
Below I am describing some important values,

  • numposts = 10; Total number of posts which you wants to scroll by this widget
  • limitspy=4; Number of the posts to appear on the widget
  • intervalspy=4000; Scrolling speed of the widget,if you decreased the value speed of widget will increases.
Finally save your all changes and visit you blog to see the working widget.

Please let us know your thoughts on this widget.Peace and Blessings Buddies :)
