Not so wow... now!
By , for WP 4.1

I used this plug-in for over a year withs success - I only used the bar options, not all of the sticky options, tracking and analytics on their website.

When I started to clean-out my DB and wp_options table I found that this plug-in made 60 entries! Way more than any other plug-in I'm running. Each time wordpress runs it has to load and read all of this crud.

I deleted the plug-in but still had to delete all of the entries. I used "Clean Options" and removed all of the entries this plug-in left that started with "gc_message_bar_" Here is a list of them:

I installed a new notification bar script that does not crud-up my database and wp_options files.

---PREVIOUS REVIEW------

I usually get about 20-50 new user registrations per week, using this bar that number jumped to 200 per week. Great tool, and now that it has been recently updated great features, too!

I can not show it to registered users (makes no sense to ask them to register if they are) AND choose how much time between the closing of the dialog I want it to show up again for un-registered users (I chose one week or 168 hours).

Totally customizable design, too!

Quality plug-in, responsive support and overall a great addition to any website.
