Add status updates to your website with our new Status Bar

Image showing what the new Status Bar plugin looks like in the wild.

In an effort to help extend your voice beyond the status page, we are pleased to release our Status Bar plugin.

Once dropped into your website It’s hidden by default, but when you create a new apology the status bar will appear, containing your message and a link should they wish to follow on with the full story.

If the user clicks the dismiss button, or if the apology is closed, the bar will disappear and they won’t be shown the apology again.
