How to Render a Footer Banner on Your Website

The footer banner is simply a floating message at the bottom of your screen. Shown only once to any user for a defined period of time, it's expected that the banner will include a link to another resource. The banner is a means of directing a user to important and timely content such as articles that discuss the impact of cash rate changes.

As a minor module, the feature can be a little tricky to locate via the header menu. You can search for 'header' in the 'Website' module to locate the applicable menu, or you can navigate via "WordPress' › 'Contentus' › 'Inpost'. The InPost Module include a few features that'll return time-limited or campaign-related content.

Note: The Website Modal module is a more effective means at which to alert a user to important content. Review the Website Module for more information.

As many footer banners should be created as required, and different banners may optionally be created for different modules within your website )the reason becomes clear in a moment).

Once created, click 'Save'.

  Creating Footer Banner Styles

In our example shown earlier, we used a black background with white text - this is our default. You may create as many styles as you feel might be necessary. As an example of how styles might be used, you might consider a red background and white text for urgent messages.... although it'd have to be seriously urgent to use such a bold style.

Create your Styles via the 'Styles' panel.

Footer Banner Styles

  Pictured: Style options are basic. Create a style name for your reference in forms, then define the font size, the text colour, and background colour. An opacity (transparency) may be applied to the background colour.

You may create as many styles as you might need.

  Sending the Footer Banner to Your Website

Once the necessary banners are created, you should optionally assign them to various areas of your website. Keep in mind that the Footer Banner should only be used when it's required.

Via the 'Send' panel, select your website and the assignment panel will be returned. It is here where you will assign an optional footer banner to each module, assign the style, 'show again' time, and banner expiry.
