*NOTE* The author’s comment below was in response to my review reporting that the plugin would crash on activation. This has since been fixed, so what follows is a proper review: Very easy to use and free of complicated options. The plugin does what it says it does, it displays a nice little bar at the top of the page for your visitors, or also to back-end users. That’s great to have both of those options. I wish there were style settings though. I can change the text color via CSS, but not the bar background color. The in-line style cannot be overridden, so you are stuck with grey #ccc Please add settings to choose: – text color – background color – border color
