Difference between Homepage message and Announcements.

Post by Castellana on August 13th 2013, 6:15 pm

HelloHello!

This is not a problem but a question about the difference between these two ACP options -
1. Homepage message:
ACP> Display> Homepage> Generalities> Homepage message.

2. Announcements:
ACP> General> Messages and e-mail> Announcements.

What is the difference? Do they display in two different places? How are they usually used? Is it typical to use both?

[FYI, currently we are using the Announcements option only.]

The Announcement can be display on all pages, can be scrolling or whatsoever, as you can see the settings they provide you in the ACP. As for the Homepage announcement, it's only shown on the index (board, or forum) which can only be seen on the index. It's on the top of the forums.

The support forum has a homepage message. Notice how it only appears on the index/homepage.

Do you mean the light blue box that says: "Welcome to the support forum" ? The one with the useful links ?

Thanks to both of you!

Currently, my website displays ads in that location. The ads go away when we log in.

So, for a guest visiting the site, would they see the ad box on top of the Homepage message?
