CM Notification Bar (CMNB) - Creating a Notification
Creating a Notification
To create a notification bar, go to the plugin dashboard and click on Notifications.
Here you will see all existing notification campaigns. To add a new campaign, click on the Add New Notification button.
This brings you to a screen where you can add notifications for that campaign. To add multiple notifications, simply click the Add New Notification button at the top.
Here you can name the campaign and enter notification contents. You can customize your notification using HTML coding.
In this example, the HTML coding creates a small black button that links to a page on the demo site.
Styling of The Notification
On the back-end notification page, you can customize basic visual options:
- Display method: Random or selected
Random display shows a random notification from the campaign, while selected allows you to pick what notification is shown. This is useful if you want to display specific messages at a certain time during the campaign.

Define if the notification bar will appear on top or at the bottom of the page.
