WP Plugin: Easy Announcement v1.1

This is a must upgrade for those who are using my Easy Announcement WordPress plugin. Why? Because in this latest version, you can use newline instead of using breakline <br /> in your announce.txt text file.

  3. Great idea for a plugin, where in the index file does the line go?

  4. just put the plugin code in anywhere you want the announcement to be displayed. 🙂

  5. No I get that part, just wasn’t sure where exactly I add it. I’m getting error messages when I try it ex.
    Warning: implode() [function.implode]: Bad arguments.

  6. I get a file not found message whenever I try to download it
