I had a special support request for formatting the content part in a different way (left alignment and text high smaller). I got within one day the answer, which I would like to share with you. Might be helpful for others too. Adding the following custom css code to the page solved my issue: .news-info {text-align: left;line-height: 1.4;}

There are two versions in this plugin. What they call “classic” based on marquee element. This seems to work on in browsers which still support this antique element The “modern” version is based on jquery and it has many bugs. I gave up trying to fix the css up
