Superbly designed & Great Support

by @anametheus

I’ve gone through many notification plugins and most of the free ones are either badly designed, with zero support upon contact & may not work as advertised, while others offer a bunch of features but with expensive monthly subscriptions & ridiculously aggressive marketing. Announcer not only works but offers a ton of features for the free version with a beautiful intuitive design, while its developer being quick to respond to inquiries and really helpful with their suggestions. I look forward to how Announcer develops and have come to appreciate all the other plugins this developer offers.

Worked as advertised!

by @themightymo

I tried a few other banner plugins but none of them did what I needed: multiple banners displaying conditionally on specific pages. Announcer got the job done – thank you! A+
