An effective way to show vistors a custom message that stands out
By , for WP 4.0

This is a great plugin if you have content on your site or a message that you want to stand out to visitors. The interface is clean and easy to use.

The ability to use shortcodes in the content area is a very powerful option that opens up many possibilities of how you can use this bar.

Awesome Bar

This is one the best bar I've tried.
Easy to manage and place. Great editing area. Lots of premium like features.
And support is superb from Dev. Quick replies and hard work to fixing user reported issues.

Just what I needed
By , for WP 3.5.2

This plugin just works as advertised without conflicts with any of my many other plugins. When I did run into a glitch, the support response from the author was uncommonly fast and professional. Couldn't be happier!

First impression and suggestions
By , for WP 3.5

First impression: really works for what is intended. And it works well.

Suggestion: Allow visitors to hide or close the bar. Auto hide after X seconds. Position: header/footer. And all that admin can select from Yes/No.

Advantage: Plugin is simple. Responsive. Displaying on the homepage, on single page, all pages. Showing: certain days or permanently.

Disadvantage: the button "save" are seen only half. As it was cut horizontally. Maybe you've played too much when you're doing the design, but that's just my subjective impression. Desired is a simple design.

Go ahead, this is great!

Simple but powerful
By , for WP 3.3.2

EHUB is as the name suggest, easy to use. The feature I like most is having numerous bars created without time limits. This means that they load randomly. I am not stuck with just one message but I can have many.

I had a question about the plugin and sent an email one evening to the creator. I got a very pleasant reply with the answer the following morning. That alone has sold me. I can't say how many times I have search the forums to find plugin questions a year or more old with no response or answer. Great work.

Another vote for "simple and works"
By , for WP 3.4.1

When used with a responsive theme and without tweaking the styling you're limited out-of-the-box to about 40 characters per message (that's the practical number of characters visible per line on a smartphone in portrait mode), but for the price (free) I can live with that.

And the ability to schedule messages via START DATE / STOP DATE is just gravy.
