Used for short, time-sensitive messages such as announcing the cancellation of an event. An announcement can postdated, meaning it will not display until the ‘Start date’, and it will be removed following arrival of the ‘End date’. A maximum of three items will be displayed on the front page. To add an announcement, select “Content ⇒ Add content ⇒ Announcement” from the admin toolbar.
