Site Alert

The Site Alert module is a lightweight solution for allowing site administrators to easily place an alert on their site, for example for maintenance downtime, or any general informational message. Alerts can be assigned a severity level.



Enable the Site Alert module
Add the 'Site Alert' block to whichever layout you wish it to appear in.

Differences from Drupal 7

Module modifications for Backdrop.

  • The scheduling capability was removed. To regain this functionality consider using the
    Block Scheduler module.
  • WYSIWYG added for block content creation.
  • Block configuration moved to the layout screen so content creation and placement are done in one step.
