Version 1.2 is in the works
Current features I have planned for this version is;
* Guests Only - The admin controlled ability to make it so the announcement is only shown to guests only. (This could be then used as a welcome message )

No many features as you can see, so if you have any suggestions, please post them, so I can include them in my next version

Thanks,

Marky

Sorry about the wait gamebgs - I've been super busy with the menu control mod im working on, and keeping MgArcade alive and kicking - plus school - just one big juggle

I've not tested yet, but will do if you still wish me too.
You may test it yourself, it's pretty easy to uninstall. Just delete the text you added in the navbar template and choose uninstall on the product menu

Thanks,

Marky

I hope to get version 1.2 out tonight - it will contain one new feature:

'Global Announcement Page' - This will add a link to a seperate page, where you can add a more descriptive announcement.

Hey, nice idea. Looking forward to it. Or, can you make it to link to a page of our choice??? I use it to make announcements for my vbdrupal section (and it works quite well for that!)
