I've created an option to include a link to the title of your announcement, and also an option to turn on and off, a 'More...' link, which will link to the same link as the title and will appear at the end of your announcement should you want to include more.
I must now create the option to turn the link on and off, and also create the page in which you can re-direct to include the 'more' announcement

But I must dash now, so I'll release it when it's finished tommorow

Thanks,

Marky

Looks good, I plan on installing this after moving my board to a new host. I've got a suggestion. How about an option to automatically create a thread in a specified forum when you post an announcement? If the option is selected, you specify the forum, a thread is created with the same title and contents as the announcement and the announcement automatically contains a link to the thread.

What about this in reverse.... post in a specified forum and it shows up in the global announcement... this way you could allow admin's, moderators, or whatever you set your posting rules to be... toeasily make an announcement without going into the admin panel..... ?

** Thanks Installed **

In the fresh install - 1.1 text file, there is un-necessary </if> in end of code to be added in the navbar template. I thought i would let you know.

What I'd like to see ;

1. The ability to control which usergroups see an announcement.

2. The abilty for multiple annoucements - linked to the above.

The result being that different usergroups see different announcements.

Features:

*** Announcement Title Link - The ability to create a link from the title of your announcement to an external link.
*** 'More' Option - The ability to add an 'More...' to your announcement. This links to the same link as the title.

Just download the .zip, and follow the correct instructions
This version is easier to install as all you must use is '$globalannounce' in the navbar! It automatically Cache's the templates for you
