Automatically display the red 'UB Alert' banner on your site during a campus emergency.
Add the component to the page. No settings need to be adjusted in this component, but you will need to adjust your home page's properties.
Place this component immediately under the main UB 'Reaching Others' banner on your site's Header page, which is located in your Site-Wide Configuration folder.
To ensure that the banner will display on your site as soon as it is loaded on the master emergency.buffalo.edu site, you will need to set a Flush Trigger on your site's home page.
In your home page's Page Properties, in the Advanced tab, under Server Caching, add a new Flush Trigger with this URL:
Do not be alarmed. Unless there is a campus crisis, the banner will NOT be visible on your home page even in the Author environment. It will, however, always be displayed on your Header page in AUthor.
When a UB Alert is posted during a campus emergency, this component will display as a red banner on select websites, such as UB Now, the News Center, the UB home page, and the main Emergency Management site.
