Ease of use

Very easy to use.


Great support !


Pretty self explanatory but there's some documentation on the developer's website.

I used this to: I use this to notify my users with some important messages.
Owner's reply: Thanks, we will consider your suggestions in future versions.

It does what the developer said it would. In my book, that's awesome.

Hi, this is a very good extension that works for all joomla versions. Although it has an arrow button to minimize the bar, it doesn´t avoid to display again in the next page. It would be great if it would have a button to close it definitely an avoid displaying in every page. Thanks for this great and free contribution.

Owner's reply: Thank you, We will check feasibility and try to cover that feature in next release.

A good bar

Installed in 2 min, the bar wasn't showing at all.

I contacted the creator and received a very fast support.

After he did some changes in the code, the bar is showing and working properly.

It's a great extension that could get even more value if the menu selection was easier and more intuitive. Like display in all menu, only the one I select, or none, instead of having to activate menus items one by one.

Good job, I recommend!

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review!

We are happy that we have solved the problem which was due to jQuery no conflict method used in your site.

Regarding menu assignment(like on all pages, no pages etc) as module manager provides in Joomla back-end, we will check feasibility and do needful.

Amazingly Designed

Worked flawlessly.

Initially it did not show up. Since I am using Joomla 3.2.3 with Bootstrap and T3 Framework, I decided not to load jQuery and jQuery UI and it worked smoothly.

Thank you again

Owner's reply: Thank you!

Although I experienced a strange issue after starting to use this plugin, I was impressed with the user-friendly backend. Very easy to set where you want to do this plugin its work. Enter notification text right in the backend - even allows you to use html code.

Developer, was very quick to respond when I notified him of the problem. When he saw what was wrong, he changed the tweaked the plugin especially for me so to make it run smoothly on my website. Absolutely excellent. Recommended, as it is expected that the plugin will work right out of the box with other sites. Just my site had something strange on going so it seems

Owner's reply: Thanks a lot.
