IvyCat Announcements

Display announcements on pages and posts, and within the WordPress Dashboard.

Short Description

Custom Post type Announcements with user levels and date checking.


Plugin is depending upon theme styling. Version 1.0 of this plugin does not contain native styles. If you are curious as to the reasoning behind this, check out:


This is a minimal plugin, function over form. If you would like to extend it, or would like us to extend it in later versions, feel free to contact us at admins@ivycat.com. We do custom plugins as well as upgrades and features for existing plugins.


You can use the functions to display your announcements using shortcode or directly in your theme files.


[ica_announcement]: displays all announcements for users in pertinant groups [ica_announcement id='1']: displays announcement with post id of 1 ** you can entere ANY number here ;) ** [ica_announcement group="group-slug"]: Displays announcement in the group specified by the slug.

Direct Theme PHP.

You can access the announcement functions by using the $ica_announce object as such:

$ica_announce->display_announcements(); $ica_announce->get_announcement($id); $ica_announce->get_announcements_by_group($group);

Road Map

  1. Add page / post specific announcements.
  2. Add Custom User group support.
