WPFront Notification Bar and GDPR compliance?

This plugin doesn’t collect any personal information. For more information please visit GDPR compliance.

I don’t want the plugin to be displayed on “wp-admin”, what should I do?

Notification bar doesn’t display on the wp-admin pages, except on the notification bar settings page. On the settings page it acts as a preview so that you can see the changes you make.

How do I stop the bar from displaying for logged in users?

The new version(1.3) allows you to filter the bar based on user roles. In this case you need to select the “Guest users” option.

I want to thanks the developers to make this great plugin available for the community for free. I have changed from other notification plugin that was very bad for the performance, and this one is fantastic: Super light, many options to customize with short and helpful descriptions, beatiful and very wel design… A piece of art!

What a great plugin! A client asked my to display a phone number at the top of selected pages of his website on mobile devices only. This plugin fulfilled the task perfectly. With many versatile (and understandably explained) customization options it was very easy to set up and adapt the notification bar to your needs. And it worked without any problems from the very beginning. Thank you, Syam!
