Needing to get out a message to your site users? Adding a page alert, aka pop-up, is available and easy to do.
On each of the pages in the backend of SiteWrench, you will find a set of three blue icons in the upper right corner of the page. Page Alert is the first of the set.
The page alert editing box allows you to create your message, turn the alert on, set a date range you would like the message to pop-up on your site, require that pop-up to display each time a users comes to that page, and allows you to set a delay before the pop-up appears on the page.
Do you want to fancy your message up a bit to match the styling on your site? You can do that too! The message box will also accept html so you can add different elements to your message.
Not quite sure about adding html coding? We have an easy life hack for that. Add a custom content page part to the page you are adding your page alert to or on a testing page if you have one. If you add it to the page you are adding the alert, make sure that the page part is turned off so it is not seen on your live site. Go ahead and create your alert message in that page part. Make sure to use the WYSIWYG editor tools to add headings, buttons, links, or even an image. Once you have created your message, simply use the Source button in the upper left of the editor to switch to the source code view. Copy the html code provided and paste it right into your pop-up message box! See, easy-peasy!
