ForumUp.com and ForumUp.it now have a new feature to allow you to make messages at the top (header) and bottom (footer) of your forum. The header and footer messages will show on every page, not just the index page.
To make a "header" announcement like we have on this forum that says "Staff Communications", first, you have to have paid for an ads-free forum.
After that is set up, go to Admin panel>general admin>forumup. If you paid for ads-free forum, you will see a section called "HTML code on top and bottom of forum page". In the boxes there, you put in your message to show either at the top (header) or bottom (footer) of your forum.
You can just type words, where there will not be a box around the words, or you can use html to create a table that will look like the header at the top of this forum.
The html code to make a header table like on this forum is:
|<table class="forumline" border="0" cellpadding="3" cellspacing="1" width="100%" height="95px">
<td class="catHead" colspan="2" height="28"><span class="cattitle">Staff communications</span></td>
<td class="row1" align="left"><span class="gensmall">
There are NO BACKUPS of forums. Do not ask about Backups. There aren't any.
Do not ask support questions by PM to the staff!! Post on the forum.</font> <font color=purple><b>**ALWAYS include the URL to your forum in every post.**</b>
<big>* If you did not get your activation email, look <a href="http://staff.forumup.net/viewtopic.php?t=251&mforum=staff"> here</a></big><br>

Change the messages to what you want it to say on your forum.
NOTE: If you stop paying for ads-free forums, once you current no ads is used up, the feature will be disabled and the header or footer you made will disappear.
