Sector Notice offers a flexible block type to create and place public notices in your theme. New in Sector 10, Sector Notice includes everything you'll need to get started, including sample content.   

See a Sector Notice block in action!

Check out the Notice banner on the the Sector 10 beta preview 

Features and functionality

Sector Notice includes:

  • Sector Notice block type
  • Material icon support 
  • Notice levels impacting theme colours (Base, Moderate, Critical, Highly critical) 
  • Close button and dismissal expiry setting 
  • Sample content to make it easy to get started

Sector Notice benefits from the improved AdminUI block access to manage and add custom blocks introduced with the Sector Promo Magnets

The basic Sector Notice feature is available in our Sector 10 Alpha and more is coming — see our Change Log below :).

Change log

With 10.0.0-alpha6, we have... 

  • replaced the Sector Themes taxonomy with the Notice Level List field
  • introduced the Notice levels (see above)
  • added Material Icons support
  • added the Dismissal Expiry 
  • added a close button 
  • updated sample content 
  • added Block administration permissions for the Content Administrator

Still to do ... 

  • The core permissions to place blocks is not granular enough, so we need a workaround that will allow the Content Editor to enable/disable notices.
