Displays a welcome announcement to your visitors. Shows it over a transparent veil with appearance effects. Format: Flash /static HTML.
This plugin displays a welcome announcement when a visitor enters your blog. The announcement is shown over a transparent veil with an appearance effect, displayed for the defined duration and then taken offscreen with a disappearance effect. The plugin supports announcement in flash format (swf) and standard HTML announcement.
The plugin is packaged with a default animation (wa_demo.swf) animating a customizable text. Upon installation, the default announcement message is “Welcome to [your-blog-name]”. You can of course edit it to your needs.
An HTML announcement can be defined and supports all standard HTML tags, including text and images. There is wysiwyg editor in the administration panel to help you design it. If you fancy rich content, you can also add it.
For convenience, your visitors will see your announcement only once, at the frequency you define. A cookie is set with your specified expiration date and returning visitors won’t see the welcome message again before the cookie expires.
The announcement is shown on any page, as long as the visitor has not yet seen it. It is very useful if people are redirected to your articles / pages from other blogs or search engines. It has been testes on Internet Explorer 6+ and Firefox 3+.Top
