Hey all,

Just got myself a brand SPANKING new vBulletin licence, that I intend to use at:

Nevertheless, I also intend to start supporting my previous mods, as well as starting new ones!

To that extent... if you feel that a feature that you wish for hasn't been included in Global Announcements, say it loud and proud NOW! And I will work on 'Global Announcements Version 1.4' which will be available for the latest vBulletin versions and will be completly supported!

Marky great to see you back.
I would like
- Multiple announcements
- Set colour of the box background for each.
- Did you ever get the positioning sorted below the navbar? I guess you add it to the page template.
- Wonder if it would be possible to have 2 columns so they'd be more boxes than strips?
- Or just be able to use an html table in it. That would cover doing colours as well. If inserting a table would be workable could supply a brief code guide for those who don't do html like a table with 1 td (column) note on where to put colour codes, some sample colour codes; table with 2 cols, tables one col or 2 cols with borders. (I can do that for you)

it does work on 3.6.8, but after upgrading I had to add the $globalannounce back to the navbar template manually even after re-importing this mod.

Since upgrading to 3.6.10 the announcements are on every page and on every thread.

I need it on forumhome only.

What happened to updating this mod?
