Sometimes you need to communicate short-term, timely information in a way that your site visitors can't miss. Using a sitewide announcement ensures that your message is prominently displayed on every page of your website for as long as you leave it turned "on." Consider this feature when you need to announce cancellations due to weather, impending deadlines, short-term promotions, etc.

New: Sitewide announcements can now be scheduled.


Announcement Types and Options

There are four announcement types from which to choose: Emergency, Attention, Breaking News, and General. Each of these is displayed as a different color. In addition to your message, you have the option of including a link or time information.
