Alerts are managed in the Alerts group. Two types of blurbs are in place and can be used together or separately for time sensitive communications.
Note that content can be set to go live and expire at preset times. When you add a notification or alert, consider how long it should remain showing on the site. For example, a notification about a snow closing on Thursday should disappear at the end of that day.
To remove an alert manually, set it to Hidden or delete it. “Hidden” blurbs, like all other hidden LiveWhale content, will not appear on any public-facing page of your site.
Notification banners are created in the blurb type “Notification banner - homepage only or sitewide.” By default banners are shown on every page of the site. The default banner looks like this:
Adding the tag “Emergency Alert” will change the banner to red:
To set a notification banner to appear on the homepage only, add the tag “homepage only” to the blurb.
Additional information about an alert
To add additional communications about an alert, create a blurb of type “Alert-Related Homepage Communication.”
These informational alerts can be used together with notification banners or separately. By request, they apply to the site homepage only.
