Tips and tricks ... they're also front-end demos!

A static message echo'd inside of some <div>s, with "waspy warning" background images - very eye-catching!;

THIS IS A WARNING! No, not really, but now that I've got your attention...

Fast Warn can be used for all kinds of instant web alerts or messages - pop-uppy ones, blinking one, static ones, or otherwise, since you can style them exactly as you want. How about to;

  • Alert customers to urgent sales information,
  • Warn visitors about a short-notice closure,
  • Advise folk about temporary service disruptions,

There are so many possibilities... and not just to warn. Use to display happy news too!

Just a simple <div> with minimal styling and a snippet of jQuery to add a blink effect;


Additional usage - Auto-feed updates to Twitter and Facebook

An RSS v2.0 xml file is (re)generated every time you update your Fast Warn message and you can use this file to push updates automatically to Twitter and Facebook. This is great for you as it means you only update once, and your message is fed out to other, multiple destinations, without any extra intervention from you. Less effort, less fuss!
