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+

Great plugin. Checks off all the boxes for easy implementation of multiple notification bars. Very customizable. Many new features in version 5.0 and the author is active and very helpful if you do run into issues or want upgrades. I tried multiple notification bar plugins and all came up short somewhere, except this one. Great work Aakash! Mike

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.
