What is it?

This is a simply yet very effective newsbar that you can display at the top of your forum. You can display 1 or as many as you like and change the colour and border of each one.


How to Install?


1. Go to AdminCP --> Styles & Templates --> Your Style --> Edit Templates --> Forum Home Templates --> FORUMHOME
2. Find:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and below place:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Additionally you can instead add this code to the end of your additional CSS by going to your AdminCP --> Templates & Styles --> YOUR STYLE --> Edit Templates --> Additional CSS. If you decide to do this please make sure you remove the <style> tags so the code would look:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

If you put the CSS in the FORUMHOME you do not put it in the additional.css. The same goes for if you put the CSS in the additional.css you do not put it in the FORUMHOME.
3. Find (in FORUMHOME):

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and below place:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

4. Save and enjoy




If you want to have multiple just repeat step 3 by placing the same code below. If you want to have multiple that are different colours then you'll need to duplicate the CSS with different class names (say .newsbar_red) and change the CSS colours accordingly.

and in the replacement code should add clear instructions to change the url of the users site otherwise 404 error will occur.
Also can suggest some good location for that.
Thanks but I don't know what you are talking about when you say item 2 is not needed. I am not saying to put the code in the additional.css and the FORUMHOME, you can do either. And I just thought it was common sense that if I say find code in the FORUMHOME then do not mention another template from that it would still be the same template, but that's just me. I don't want you to think that I was saying you put the CSS in 2 templates, it was your choice, either in the additional.css or FORUMHOME, Then the class in the FORUMHOME. So the CSS in either the additional.css or FORUMHOME and the class in the FORUMHOME. Oh and I think that:
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

is pretty clear as to what you put there. If you want you don't even have to put the URL in, it can just be an announcement.

Can you help me? This is whats showing for me: (All this was edited in the FORUMHOME template)

http://prntscr.com/1k17hc

And these are the codes I have added, like you said to. First I added:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Then I added this:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

But it doesn't even display. What did I do wrong?

Okay, first off did you add the codes to the correct place?
If you did then add the CSS to the additional.css template but remove the <style> tags. So the code for the additional.css would be:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Remember to remove the CSS from the FORUMHOME and just leave the class there.

If I may suggest something?

Well, this is a really nice idea, I am using it on my forum. However, can I give you some advice about your CSS?

I edited the CSS a bit, and I think it looks a lot better like this:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

This way adds a border around the entire thing. Your CSS adds a border just on the top and bottom. This also makes the font just a bit smaller, and it also adds rounded corners for a more professional look.

If you like my CSS Edits, your more then welcome to add them to your post.

Here is a screenshot:
