How to add an Announcement Bar?

Do you want to announce a great sale, or a pro­mo­tion, or any­thing else that’s impor­tant for you and engag­ing for your read­ers? You can use the Announce­ment Bar to show a cus­tom mes­sage about that. It’s dis­played at the top of your web­site, above the head­er and it’s eas­i­ly cus­tomiz­able.

How it works?

If you go to your Word­Press Dash­board at Appear­ance → Cus­tomize → Gen­er­al and scroll down, you can see the avail­able options. Here they are:

  • Announce­ment Bar Text — it’s a field where can be added the announce­ment text; it sup­ports HTML too if you want to high­light some words, for instance.
  • Announce­ment Bar Link  here you can add a link that will be applied to the entire announce­ment bar to make it all click­able.
  • Back­ground and Text Col­or — using a pick-col­or you can apply your brand­ing style to the bar to cre­ate even more con­sis­ten­cy.

This article applies to Vasco, as they share the same underlying structure.
