Create a Notice, it’s easy!
You need just few minutes to get confident with Notice creation process. Trust us, it’s easy.
You can create a new Notice simply going to the new Notices menu on the left (right below posts, pages and so on). Then click Add New and write your first notice by inserting the title and, optionally, a wider content that will be displayed with a hovering tooltip.
Furthermore, on top right (above Publish area) you will see a brand new metabox called Notices Options from where you can set an optional expiration date and – if you set the the ‘Let Targetting Authors’ option in General Settings page – specific authors to which make visible the Notice.
Finally you just have to publish the Notice. It will be saved as Private… don’t worry about it, is ok. Now you will see the Notice appearing on top and following you in every page you navigate through (only in backend, sure). When the user have read and don’t want to see more the Notice, have simply to click on the dismiss button.
After published, the notice will appear, however, styled as simple as possible. That might be enough for you, but if you prefer (and we think you do) you can go in the Design Settings page and free your creativity for styling the notices really as you want.
Useful, but Nice
Go beyond. We are in backend, sure, but a look to the graphic never hurts. Be Creative!
