excellent plugin!

OMG this is the best notification bar!
By , for WP 4.3

I was in a hurry to install a notifications bar on a clients site and grabbed the first one that came up in search. The font was too small and I wanted to have an image without having to hack the code.

After searching some more, I found this one and the countdown timer pulled me in. It was beyond perfect as it was for a Indiegogo campaign.


Nice simple plugin, but needs a different method of loading fonts.
By , for WP 4.2.2

I appreciate the simple interface and options in the plugin. The fonts though are loaded specifying http: which will break the security of a https site. You could declare all of the fonts to use https since that protocol will work over http but not the other way around.

Plugin simply doesn't work
By , for WP 4.2.2

The options are nice and not too overwhelming, but it simply doesn't work.

Think I found a bug...
By , for WP 4.2.2

I like your plugin and use it regularly :)

May I bring to your attention that Webdeveloper shows the following in FF-browser when dw-promobar.php is in use:
<a "="" target="_self" href="some-link " class=""></a>

Now, after 'cleansing', it shows (as it is probably meant to be):
<a target="_self" href="some-link" class=""></a>

Ceck both $dwpb_link = ''; and $dwpbcd_link = ''; in dw-promobar.php - there's a colon in the code that doesn't belong there, I reckon.

BTW, I never got custom CSS to work for me (and style it in me theme's style.css), which might have to do with the above? I didn't try yet using my own 'rectified' dw-promobar.php version, since I'm also missing a title feature for the link and have therefore reverted to hard-coding a desired link directly into dw-promobar.php - I know, not the neat way, but I'm not a PHP-pro.

Around line #225 this is what I do:
<?php // echo $dwpb_link; ?><a href="some-link" class="some-class" title="some title">some text</a>

Maybe you can (and want to) help or update - your call :)

Cheers, thx for the bar and all the best,

Sleek and customizable. Just enough options!

I installed this notification bar with ease and peace of mind that my client would not be overwhelmed with options or able to drastically update the style in a way that clashed with their carefully crafted design. Great work identifying just what's needed for simple, infrequent notifications that only require a link or text! Also appreciated adding in custom styles easily. Will definitely use again if the situation calls for this type of solution.

I want to use custom HTML
By , for WP 3.9.2

Perfect easy-to-use plugin. Intuitive, simple and looks perfectly.

Please add feature to use custom html code on the bar.


Works like a charm!!! Love it!
By , for WP 3.8.1

It does what it says and it works out of the box! Easy to setup and user. Highly recommend it!

Cannot change colors or styling
By , for WP 3.8.1

Despite changing the background and border colors in the plugin dashboard, the background remains the default orange with a wide white border. I've deactivated all other plugins, changed to the default theme - nothing works. When I inspect the DW Promo container it looks as though the plugin is dropping the # from the hex color for any color that is entered through the plugin. No response from plugin author.
