Great flexible notification bar with easy setup
By , for WP 4.0

I tested quite a few notification bars. I was looking for one that had power and flexibility but was still very easy for our users to use. This is it.

Works perfectly
By , for WP 4.0

The bar works on all browsers, even bypasses plugins like Adblock and Disconect. Its extremely easy to set up, and you will see instantly see results. It even works fine on the mobile version of my site. Lastly the Author is very helpful and is quick to respond to questions. A very good plugin overall.

Doesn't work as promised
By , for WP 3.9.2

I really hate to give bad reviews, but this doesn't allow me to set a page link (am I missing this somewhere?) and even when I selected the bar to appear at the TOP of the page, it only appeared at the bottom!! (I even updated it again for "top" and it still only shows on the bottom.) And on my Galaxy S4 Android phone, the box is no longer 100% across but a tiny fraction of that size...it looks silly. And the box has no clickable link, since there was no option for that in the settings. If I'm supposed to add html for that okay, but why not just include it in the settings options? Finally, the font color setting didn't work; it only works in the text editor box. Nice try, but too many bugs.

An effective way to show vistors a custom message that stands out
By , for WP 4.0

This is a great plugin if you have content on your site or a message that you want to stand out to visitors. The interface is clean and easy to use.

The ability to use shortcodes in the content area is a very powerful option that opens up many possibilities of how you can use this bar.

Awesome Bar

This is one the best bar I've tried.
Easy to manage and place. Great editing area. Lots of premium like features.
And support is superb from Dev. Quick replies and hard work to fixing user reported issues.

Excellent!

Better than WP notification bar... thank you!

Just what I needed
By , for WP 3.5.2

This plugin just works as advertised without conflicts with any of my many other plugins. When I did run into a glitch, the support response from the author was uncommonly fast and professional. Couldn't be happier!
