AWSOM News Announcement

AWSOM News Announcement allows you to post news announcements in the area above your posts (or anywhere else you want) and edit it using the Visual Ed

To Install:

Copy the plugin folder into your WordPress plugin directory. Activate the plugin from the plugin interface. If you would like to place the News Announcement in an area other than at the top of your posts add the following lines to your theme file where you want the announcement to appear:

<!-- Start AWSOM News Announcement Block --> <div id="announcement"> <?php if (function_exists('display_my_news_announcement')) { display_my_news_announcement(0); } ?> </div> <!-- End AWSOM News Announcement Block -->

or you can add the code %%awsomnews0%% to any post or page to have the news block appear there. If you turn on active php you can use the news block to add different video or audio players or any plugin that needs php code to run.

You will then want to turn the option "Place the News Announcement On Index Page above Posts" to off in the Write/Posts-> Awsom News area. You can choose to use the Visual editor or directly add HTML code. If you wish to switch between editor types you need to switch the setting and update the news post, then refresh the page again to have the editor reload properly.
