Facebook Pixel Site Notification | Western Kentucky University

Site Notification

Notifications can be added site wide using the _notification.pcf file. These messages use the alert style and are shown at the top of every page. Use notifications when you need to communicate urgent or important information on every page. This is a great way to inform users that something has moved, a location is closed, or hours have changed.

Each site has one notification file and message per site, they cannot be added to sub-folders. Once enabled, the notification will display on every page, they cannot be hidden per page.

The _notification.pcf file will need to be published after saving for any changes to these to take effect.
