Icegram

wordpress website developer near me

As the Covid19 lockdowns started taking effect in early March, the requests for Eflat. to put up closure notices on websites increased. We first thought about using Monarch to create pop-ups but decided against this approach. We wanted the alert to be visible, but not annoying and easy to update.

Instead, we found another solution.

Icegram is a plugin that creates different types of promotions – pop-up windows, alerts, and my favorite – announcement bars that live at the top of your site above the main navigation. Most client requests asked for a short message with a link to an information page. We customized each Icegram campaign using the built-in rich text editor to match each brand’s style. Finally, we configured each announcement to display on the home page, all pages, or a specific page.

Icegram is freemium, meaning it’s free to use, but advanced features and templates are a paid upgrade.
