Puts a site wide bootstrap themed alert message on the top of every page.
I made this module because some of the other existing modules came close in functionality. However, we didn't want to rely on blocks or panels or anything with a theme layer. We needed something fast and easy with a WYSIWYG enabled message and so this module was born. We use hook_page_alter (D7) / hook_page_top (D8) to display the message and so it is independent of any setup you may have on the site.
People without Bootstrap
You can technically still use this, it just depends on the front end library Bootstrap for CSS / JS.
I did however add the CSS / JS in the Documentation for this module so EVERYONE can use it!
I released the Drupal 8 version the same day as the Drupal 7 version.
It looks to be stable on the 2 sites I tested it on. Will release a stable version once I do a little more testing, etc.
It is now stable.

This module was very close to what we wanted originally. We didn't need a date, something in a panel or block, and we needed a configurable WYSIWYG. Inspiration was drawn from this module. Good module though.

Close, but didn't really hit the mark on what we needed like site_alert.

Works by attaching an alert to individual nodes. No way for a site administrator to create a site wide alert.
