Need to display "Heads Up!" messages regarding upcoming site maintenance? Or want to advertise a new product or feature on your site? Maybe you run a school website and need to notify users of class cancellations. No matter what kind of website you are building, you will likely need to broadcast important messages to your users at some point. Site Alerts does exactly that.

It is a simple add-on that allows you to place "Alert Display Area" blocks anywhere on your website, then manage the alerts that will display in them from the dashboard. You can broadcast sitewide alerts to all your users by setting up an Alert Display Area block in a GlobalArea. Or you can place your Alert Display Area blocks in different locations on different pages. How you set it up is completely up to you. 

Features

  • Schedule alerts to be automatically posted and taken down at specific times
  • Optionally allow users to dismiss alerts
  • Add as many notifications as you like. Multiple visible notifications will be stacked and can be dismissed separately.
  • Custom templates for Bootstrap and Foundation are included. If your theme uses either of these libraries, then Site Alerts will match your site's styles out of the box. 
  • Easy integration for developers. 

See the documentation page for recommended best practices for configuring the Alert Display Area blocks on your site. 

Notes

Notification dismissal is based on cookies. In order for notifications to be dismissed, users must have cookies enabled.
