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!
- Unzip plugin file.
- Upload the
vgpodcasts-alertbarfolder to your
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
- You can configure your bar in the
VGP AlertBarsettings menu.
- 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.
