This is a guest blog post from Martin Reistadbakk, developer of Trumpet.
Say hello to Trumpet.
Trumpet is a simple CloudFlare App that lets you place a short message on top of every page on your site. You turn it on, and when you want to tell your users something, you enter a message that will show up the next time the user loads your site. If the user dismisses the message by clicking on it, Trumpet will not show it again for 24 hours. It is that simple.
Trumpet was conceived to scratch a personal itch. My clients often wanted to notify users of planned maintenance and downtime. This was usually done with a news article that only showed up on the front page. I needed something that would show up on all pages, which led me to making the first version of Trumpet.
If you use CloudFlare today, please check it out. If you don't use CloudFlare, what are you waiting for?
Turn on Trumpet whenever you need to make sure your visitors receive a notification.
