A simple plugin that adds a notification system to your WordPress. Via custom post types, Simple Notices gives you a way to make announcements that are displayed site-wide at the top of your site.
Notices are displayed with fixed positioning, meaning that they will overlap the rest of your site’s contents. Each notice includes a close button that allows the current user to hide the notice. If the user is logged in, the notice ID will be permanently stored in their user meta, and so will never shown again. If the user is not logged in, the ID of the notice will be stored in a cookie.
Notices can be set to only be shown to logged-in users.
Five colors are included:

There is a bug in this plugin.
If you change your notices several times this plugin remembers each version of the notice, and displays it in the changed order several times. I tried this plugin with several colours and different text 6 times, and now all the 6 versions appears one after each other when I change the sites on my website. Tried this also after deleting the cookies but the same thing happens every time. This is quite annoying for visitors. Tested this on a few browsers and it is at least a problem in IE 11.0 and the ltest Firefox
Using Tesseract 2.3.1 themes.
It’s a wonderful, wonderful developer.
