My personal addition: if you want to restrict announcements only to registered users, place $globalannounce on "Navbar" template inside a <IF> block, like this:

<if condition="$show['member'])">
I dont think it's that simple, I think it wouldn't work with custom groups but Im looking into it now and hopefully it'll appear next version.

Thanks for this.

I have also used the "if" conditional.

Just Found...Help Please

Good Day,

vBulletin Village Idiot here...

I just found this mod and it is great. I think it will really help disseminate information to my Players/Writers.

I only have one far...

Could you provide very simple (i.e. dumbed down for the VB Village Idiot) on how to change the title bar to match the gradients on the rest of my board (I hope I used the right terminology). Mostly, I hope, it would be a "where" to go to put the image link in.

Thank you and Regards,

I would be doubtful if any 3.5 add-on ran on 4.2.
