I honestly have no idea what you think is broken.
And what category you are talking about.
First you mentioned a ">" char and I advised you where it can be removed.
What is so wrong with this module
Joomla! Extensions Demo - YJ Title Ticker
that needs a fix and what category do you see there?
Module displays Custom title text that can be changed in module params, a title and part of the intro text,
Take a look at the scroller behavior on the frontend.
You will notice that for each article that belongs to a sub category it will show both the article name & the sub category name instead of showing only the article name:
CATEGORY 1 - SUB CATEGORY 11 - ARTICLE 1
Will be displayed at the frontend as....
ARTICLE 1 > SUB CATEGORY 11
While it should display only the article name
I hope this example will clarify the problem.
