Fluid Notification Bar

Description

Featured on WPdean, WPjournals, Codegeekz, Designcoral and icegram blogs, thank you for writing about us.

Fluid notification bar plugin adds the cool responsive notification bar with call-to-action button on the top of your website. This notification bar uses catchy animation for the text to grab visitors attention. It can be used to-

  • Welcome your blog/website visitor
  • Announce the giveaways for your website or blog
  • Link to your blog post or particular page in your website
  • Say an important message such as server downtime or website maintenance alerts
  • Now you can add Social Media buttons

New Features of Fluid Notification Bar

  • Customizable animation effect for text
  • Action button to navigate to a link
  • Social media buttons (Google+, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest & Linkedin)
  • Customizable font size, font color as well as background color
  • You can set interval for notification bar
  • You can set delay for notification bar
  • Works well with Bootstrap’s fixed navigation (support for navbar-fixed-top)

Reviews

Works well but limited customizeability

Easy to implement but would be vastly improved with:

• More control over styling: bar borders and shadows; fonts, font weights and sizes; button and button text styling (I had to use custom CSS to remove bottom border & shadow and change text and button styling)

• Placement options on specific page(s) (workaround: “plugin logic” plugin)

• Ability to create multiple banners to be used concurrently (different banners on different pages), random loads or just to save for future use

• More control over when the banner appears. Maybe I don’t want a 5 minute or longer delay between banner loads.
