Great work @Shandeep !!
This is much needed for announcements in homepage on new features that are being built or mentioning about future application outages.
One query I have does this plugin work for edge browsers ?

Yes, It works on all browsers except Internet Explorer.

Thanks @Shandeep. Looking forward to use this plugin !!

Works like a charm! :smiley:


– Remold

Are you open to pull requests in your repository? I think there’s a better placement for the banner that I’ve used in my own plugins previously.

The announcement text is working good when opening via spadmin. But when i am trying to login via a test account (Account not having admin capabilities), there is a popup asking me for username and password again and again, and i am not able to move ahead. Please suggest?

@shriya_agg ,

Thanks for reporting.
It has been fixed now.
Please get the latest Plugin Zip here

Before importing make sure to remove the old version from IIQ.

@Shandeep Hello. Love this plugin. Truly is very helpful. I have a question though. Is there a way to prevent it from scrolling across the screen? When providing a link, some users may struggle to click the link as its moving?

Thanks for the great suggestion.
Currently there is no way to disable the scrolling, but I can add a toggle to Enable or Disable scrolling.


That would be amazing. We just implemented this plugin within our lower environment to play around with it. So far its amazing. Just a way to toggle, or even speed up/slow down the scroll would also suffice. Thanks so much.

Looks amazing! I think the stop on hover is super useful. One last question. When I hover over the link it actually disappears. Almost like onhover is changing the text to white or something? Any CSS I can provide it to prevent this?
