FAQ

WPFront Notification Bar and GDPR compliance?

This plugin doesn’t collect any personal information. For more information please visit GDPR compliance.

I don’t want the plugin to be displayed on “wp-admin”, what should I do?

Notification bar doesn’t display on the wp-admin pages, except on the notification bar settings page. On the settings page it acts as a preview so that you can see the changes you make.

How do I stop the bar from displaying for logged in users?

The new version(1.3) allows you to filter the bar based on user roles. In this case you need to select the “Guest users” option.

After looking around for sometime for a simple header banner to stipulate free shipping and trying 3 other demonstrably awful plugins, this one was a life saver. Thank you so much for such a simple and effective and user friendly interface.

I searched all night for a simple notification bar plugin that was FREE and didn't have any "company branding" or any "pricing crap" associated with it. Then I found this plugin and I couldn't be happier. It's literally simple, and straight to the point. Looks great on mobile devices too. Thank you!

Very clever features and instinctive to use. Even the free version gives you a lot more customisations than ANY OTHER similar plugin! This plugin has my 10/10 recommendation.
