Reviews

Truly excellent plugin and developer

I tried a bunch of notification bars and this was my favorite. The problem is, all of the bars I tried worked on my desktop but not via mobile. I decided to contact the developer and he was quick to reply. Turns out it was likely a caching issue (probably cloudflare) and simply took a couple hours for the changes to refresh.

Now the bar works flawlessly, looks super clean, and I couldn’t for more. But if I did, it’s in the CRUNCHY version. So if you need more than this, check out the paid version.

Also, check out the story behind this plugin. It’s a nice touch.

Great developer.

Finally one that works!

Just installed and thus far it’s working great. I looked at several and tried one other but I use WooCommerce couldn’t get the one I tried to work sidewide so it was not working in my shopping cart. This plugin works sidewide. It’s simple but it works and it’s responsive, which some were not strangely enough. It does include their logo on the left, but at this point I don’t care! Thanks!
