JUST UPDATED TO v1.4.3 (Joomla 3.x only)
MarqueeAholic is a option rich scrolling marquee module for your Joomla 2.5 or 3.x website. When a client asked for a scrolling marquee for their Joomla website I did not find one that was free, worked or looked good so I went to work developing MarqueeAholic. This is the end results! You can customize MarqueeAholic to your website's demanding look and feel using any or all of the module options MarqueeAholic gives you...
Version 1.4.3: Added 'Top to Bottom' and 'Bottom to Top' marquee scrolling effect along with it's own supporting options.
Maintenance (June 9, 2015): Fixed the 'Joomla Update' notice & download version. NOW... it works properly!
Version 1.4.2: Bug fix with the RSS feed option. Thanks Channa D. for finding this bug and providing a patch :-).
Version 1.4.1: Maintenance release for bug fixes and now you can have as many MarqueeAholic's on a single page with their own options as needed!
Version 1.4.0: Added RSS Feed Marquee options.
Version 1.3.0: Added Text File Marquee options and minor bug fixes.
Version 1.0.0: Initial release.
