If you need to inform your members of some news, or otherwise want to post something important on your site, you can post it as an announcement.
Announcements differ from threads in that they can appear in multiple forums simultaneously, and have a time period in which they are visible, then they disappear from view.
When there are multiple announcements posted at the same time, the latest one is listed on the top.
<<<Insert a screenshot of one or more announcements.>>>
You manage announcements from the Announcement Manager, which is accessible from the Announcements menu in the Admin CP.
