For who is Bulletin intended?

Bulletin is perfect for business owners, bloggers, Woocommerce shop owners, developers, photographers, and basically everyone else. If you have a website and you want to make announcements to your users, Bulletin is for you!

Do I need to know how to code to us Bulletin?

Coding skills aren’t needed, however there might be instances where a bulletin conflicts with other UI elements in your theme. In this case you may need a developer to add some custom CSS (which is possible in the PRO version).

Can I see some examples of actual bulletins on a website?

Take a look at our demo sites. 1) Hotel website, 2) Online shop and 3 a blog

How can I get access to all features?

You can get access to more features and priority support by upgrading to our Pro version. Purchasing a Pro license gets you access to the full version of Bulletin, automatic updates and priority support!

Thank you for this plugin. This is exactly what I needed so I could place a banner at footer area. Great job and thanks for keeping it easy for people to use. You've done such a great job I will upgrade just to support your great work.

We need a plugin that would cycle through reviews customers have about our product. I had tried a few, but they didn't quite do what we were looking for, or they looked bad. I tried out Bulletin and knew this would do the trick. There were some small bugs that were odd, BUT, I reached out to support and Michiel very quickly responded. They had a patch that fixed my issue in a timely manner. Michiel even was willing to help me code a few things to get me on track. What amazing customer service! If you are on the fence about which plugin to get, look no further. This is the one.

This plugin author did a fantastic job of providing a way to alert your customers of irregular hours or delays in shipping products, or any other need for alerts. The *only thing* it didn't provide was a way to target individual pages by ID, but that's not really required in most cases of an alert message. THANK YOU sir/madam for your time saving code!

I have been looking for a plugin that does messages/banners, etc. well, without any bloat, and this is it. So pleased that I have now upgraded to the Pro version, and support have been very responsive, so far. Excellent!

In order to not have the phone ring every 15min with "Are you still open?" calls, I was able to use this plugin for a simple info banner in corona/lockdown times. Thank you for the plugin! PS Just a little small feedback what could be improved: 1. Polylang (WPML) compatibility: We use polylang to have the site in German and english. So it would have been great to haven been able to translate the info strings as it is possible with other plugins. 2. The Hotel demo page has a close button, but I was not sure how to add it. Maybe this only works with the Pro version? The Pro version docs has no info about the (x) close button... Also not sure, but a close button should also come with storing the info in localsession storage - not in a Cookie as a Cookie makes Caching very hard.

We wanted a simple announcement to offer people a Holiday Discount for our Woocommerce products. The Woocommerce built-in Store Notice covered up our site info and navigation links at the top of the page, so it was useless to us. We found a plugin that would put the banner at the bottom of the page, but then it was out of sight unless you scroll all the way down. Then we found Bulletin. It is so simple to set up and use. I set it to stay at the bottom of the screen, so it is always visible. I made it a bright Holiday red so it attracts attention. I even added a link to our Shop page so people can choose what they want. The free version has everything we need, but... I like it so much that I'm going to upgrade to the paid version anyway. It is worthwhile to support people who are doing good work. Thanks. Ed
