Today’s Q&A comes courtesy of Frederico Gonzalez, from Twitter. He asked if there was an easy way to add announcement bars to the top of his site, much like the one on ActiveDen right now (assuming you’re not logged in). Luckily, as you’ll find, it’s quite simple to whip up a jQuery plugin that will make these announcements a cinch to add.

It’s a matter of whether or not Drew finishes it.

I have a question, how can you make this so it works with your cookies and maybe re-appears every 3 days or so, so that it doesn’t annoy the visitors every time they close it and go to another page to find it at the top again.

You’d have to determine if it was the visitor’s first time to your site, and then set a cookie with PHP or JS. ...Then, with each page load, you can check to see if that cookie exists, and if it doesn’t, show the bar.

I think I have a screencast somewhere that shows how to do this – maybe one of the “jQuery for Absolute Beginners” ones…
