The marquee alert strip is a great place to get
visitors' attention and display important information. The Message Center
has two fields for the marquee alert:
Marquee Alert Enter the
message you want displayed here. Whatever you enter will be displayed in
the scrolling marquee strip at the top of the home page.
Expires After Use this field to enter an expiration date for the
alert. This way, you won't have to remember to take it down later.
If you're announcing some event in the future, use its date here. The date
should be entered in the form "mm/dd/yyyy."
The remaining links on the Message Center are used to
create new messages of several types. The forms for all these types are
similar and are described in the next section - Message Entry Form.
