Contact bar to lightbox forms, top of page

Recommended Posts

I'm using the 'Nueva' template which is super clean but i've encountered a problem I can't overcome:

- I want to create a contact bar (similar to the announcement bar, without the ability to hide) that sits at the very top of the every site page
- I want this contact bar to contain

  • Contact title
  • Link to contact form 1 (lightbox)
  • Link to contact form 2 (lightbox)
  • Link to contact form 3 (lightbox)

I basically have different contact forms for different departments which is a key call to action so it needs to be highly visible. The Announcement bar looks great but I don't want users to be able to hide it and I need it to contain text links to lightbox forms.

Any help would be appreciated.

This would require some custom JavaScript. It's achievable but it's beyond the scope of 'quick fix' solution.

Actions would be:

  • Either make announcement bar permanent or create a dedicated contact bar
  • Add oncliick scripting so that clicking  contact bar links opens the relevant lightbox
  • Make the content of the announcement / contact bar easily maintainable.

Drop me a line if you want to discuss further.

Instead of cluttering the top of every page with several contact links, it may be easier to provide a single link to a contact page using the standard announcement bar. On the contact page you can then provide attractive links to the different contact forms.

To prevent the bar from being hidden by users you can hide the 'close' button. You can do this by adding some CSS to your site at Design > Custom CSS:

.sqs-announcement-bar-close { 
  display: none; 

Alternatively, a developer could code an alternative custom announcement bar very easily for you.
