Super helpful to allow me to place a banner to distinguish different website environments so I know I'm working on a development or staging site opposed to the production site. Simple settings too.

I use this on a number of websites. This is a really useful plugin for a variety of purposes when you need to let your visitors something important. Be it a special offer, sale or a special notice. Simply install, activate and add your content (HTML is allowed). I had a minor issue that was sorted out immediately, so good support too.
