Displays a special banner for ongoing university concerns (e.g. COVID-19).
Last reviewed: May 16, 2022
The Issues Advisory Banner relies on shared content displayed using a Shared Content Reference.
It is placed in your site's Header page. Because of this placement, Specialist permissions are required.
You must also set a cache flush trigger on your home page's Properties for it to stay in synch with the master version.
Remember to set a 'Flush Trigger' for your homepage (details below) and re-activate your header and home pages.
Place the component on your site's Header page, which is located in your Site-Wide Configuration folder (/content/site/config).
The location where it is displayed on your live site is fixed. For consistency, we encourage you to place it immediately under the main Header component in Author, and below the Emergency Alert banner (if you have one), but the placement in Author does not actually matter.
This component must be configured correctly to function:
Reference path: Set to: /content/shared/www/emergency/feeds/long-term-alert-banner
To ensure that the banner will display on your site and stays up to date, you must set a server cache Flush Trigger on your site's homepage.
In Page Properties, in the Advanced tab, under Server Caching, add a new Flush Trigger with this path and then re-activate that page: /content/shared/www/emergency
Unless there is a university-wide need to communicate information, the banner will NOT be visible on your home or header pages, even in the Author environment. When the banner is operational, you should see it in Author on your header and Web pages, and on your live site.
