A Special alert displays at the top of pages you specify (see example below), surrounded by a red border. A Special alert can be created by a Site manager or by someone who has been given the Special alerter role. You can only have one special alert active on a site.

Note: Special alerts should ONLY be used to convey urgently important information.

1. From the Administration bar click My Workbench.
1. Click the Create/Manage Content tab.
3. Enter the alert message in the Body. This should be short and concise.
4. Visibility denotes where this Special alert will appear. This field is set to home by default.

• Leaving this field set to <front> will result in the Special alert appearing on the home page only.
