MAX7219 LED Matrix "ROTATE TEXT" 8x8

I need some help.

I bought a couple of these 8x8 LED MATRIX arrays:

when I load this code (below) from this website (below) it shows the SCROLL direction at 90 degrees as shown in this video: https://youtu.be/aqmkddulqVA

website:

code:

#include "MaxMatrix.h"
#include "avr/pgmspace.h"

If you look at the attached photo you see his way is to orient the displays “up and down” but in the array, the displays are physically connected “left to right”.

I’m in dire need of a solution to my scroll problem…

after that, I want to try to integrate code for ds3231 RTC to include time and temp within the scrolling text…

Thanks.
