Announcements in your right sidebar give you an opportunity to add a brief amount of text to your pages that highlight a person or event. It should be a temporary item.

Tips for use:

  • Keep text brief (30 words or less) and timely
  • Default styling is black text on white background. Alternatively, colour can be used for flare, however accessibility issues should be kept in mind when choosing.

How to Implement:

  1. Log into WordPress
  2. Click through Appearance > Widgets
  3. Click and drag element a Text widget from the Available Widgets section (on the left) to the ‘Right Sidebar Widget Area’ section on the right.
  4. Write your text into the Text widget
  5. Click ‘Save’ in the Text widget to save your changes
