Hi,
Possible, but not so easy if you never touched PHP code.
---
For sure :
1) Addon folder name must be unique (single English word, easier for you)
2) Addon name is in both site.php and admin.php files

It is OK, i have experience with php.
In fact i dont want to change a lot the original addon.
In the article scroller addon i want to replicate it, named it "article scroller products" and remove the image from the display.
Not much of work but it does make sense to me.

How can i achieve that?
I only have to rename the original addon?

Addon article scroller is much more complicated than typical addon.
Maybe just use custom CSS to hide an image, 60sec of work, instead of 20min+.

As I told you before point 2) is very important


components\com_sppagebuilder\addons\articles_scroller_products

and replace addon names in all places in both files.
Starting from admin.php
'addon_name'=>'sp_articles_scroller',


Now is your part.

It does not seem to work.
I have rename the new folder to "test_articles_scroller" and also replace any "articles_scroller" i have found in the site.php and admin.php with "test_articles_scroller" but it does not work.

The output is something like that

[sp_test_articles_scroller admin_label="" addon_style="ticker" number_of_items="3" number_of_items_tab="2" number_of_items_mobile="1" move_slide="1" slide_speed="500" carousel_autoplay="0" carousel_touch="0" carousel_arrow="0" resource="article" ordering="latest" article_scroll_limit="12" image_bg="0" ticker_heading="Breaking News" ticker_heading_width="" ticker_heading_fontsize="" ticker_heading_font_weight="" show_shape="1" heading_letter_spacing="" heading_shape="arrow" left_side_bg="" left_text_color="" overlap_date_text="0" overlap_text_color="" overlap_text_font_size="" overlap_text_right="" content_bg="" right_title_font_size="" content_title_font_weight="700" title_color="" show_intro="1" intro_limit="100" content_fontsize="" ticker_date_time="0" ticker_date_hour="0" text_color="" item_bottom_gap="1" carousel_styles="date" carousel_date_font_size="" carousel_date_font_weight="700" carousel_content_padding="" border_size="0" border_color="" border_radius="0" arrow_color="" class="" global_background_type="none" global_background_gradient="" global_background_repeat="no-repeat" global_background_size="cover" global_background_attachment="inherit" global_background_position="50% 50%" global_use_overlay="0" global_overlay_type="overlay_none" global_gradient_overlay="" global_pattern_overlay="" global_overlay_pattern_color="" blend_mode="normal" global_user_border="0" global_border_width="" global_border_radius="0" global_margin="0px 0px 30px 0px" global_padding=" " global_boxshadow="0 0 0 0 #ffffff" global_use_animation="0" global_animationduration="300" global_animationdelay="0" global_custom_css="" global_custom_position="0" global_seclect_position="relative" global_addon_position_left="" global_addon_position_top="" use_global_width="0" hidden_md="0" hidden_sm="0" hidden_xs="0" acl="" row_id="1561475198248" column_id="1561475198247" global_margin_sm="0px 0px 20px 0px" global_margin_xs="0px 0px 10px 0px" global_padding_sm=" " global_padding_xs=" " dynamicId="1565287975685"][while_scroll_view enable_while_scroll_view="0" on_scroll_actions="" transition_origin_x="center" transition_origin_y="center" enable_tablet="0" enable_mobile="0"][/while_scroll_view][mouse_movement enable_tilt_effect="0" mouse_tilt_direction="direct" mouse_tilt_speed="1" mouse_tilt_max="15" enable_tablet="0" enable_mobile="0"][/mouse_movement][/sp_test_articles_scroller]
