The Squarespace announcement bar feature sits above the header region of your website and provides a perfect opportunity to highlight a key message or event on a temporary basis.
It is easy to update and provides quick functionality allowing you to link through to a featured product sale, provide a critical message to website visits (e.g. maintenance messages) or even provide a removable notice for your cookie policies.
How to enable the announcement bar on your website:
Step 1 - Go to the Announcement Bar panel
In the Home Menu, click Design, and then click Announcement Bar.
Step 2 - Enable the Announcement Bar
Select Enable Announcement Bar from the drop-down menu.
Enter the text for the Announcement Bar in the box. You can make the text bold or italicised and create text links.
You can also add a clickthrough URL to make your Announcement Bar a clickable link.
Finally you can press "save" to enable the Announcement Bar.
