ATTENTION: When installed, this plugin will show an update within Wordpress. DO NOT UPDATE. That is not the same plugin. I have uploaded a patch to CodeCanyon to fix this but they have not released it yet.

Announcements! allows you to schedule messages to appear in a Wordpress Widget or Shortcode on specific dates. Great for sales and event announcements or holiday and birthday greetings.

You have 4 options for scheduling your announcements.

  • Display announcements using start and end dates.
  • Display announcements annually.
  • Display announcements weekly.
  • Display announcements monthly.

Also included are options to set a custom title CSS class and HTML tag. This way you can achieve the same look of the other widgets in your template.

See the User Guide. *For those upgrading see the section on “Upgrading from a previous version”.
