VGPodcasts AlertBar Plugin

Description

Adds an configurable alertbar to the top of your WordPress blog pages when enabled. I use it to advertise when I’m recording a live podcast on my site, but you may have some other use for it. Enjoy!

FAQ

Why did you release this?

I wanted to show something on http://vgpodcasts.com/ when I was recording a live podcast, figured others may have a use for it as well.

Why can’t I see my WordPress admin bar when enabled?

I have this bar float over top so logged in users can see it. Since this plugin is not meant for long use, but rather for special time sensitive messages I didn’t think this would be an issue. Feel free to edit the css to stop this behaviour if you would like.
