Banner or announcement web part. RRS feed

  • Question

  • In Sharepoint 2007 I occasionally need to add an announcement by means of a new web part. I add it to the center top of the home page so it is bold enough so no one can miss it

    It is normally a statement like "Here is a new tool" and it will stay at the top of our home page for a month.

    I do not want it to have a "by-line" (New! By Doe, John) or the "Add New Announcement" feature that is part of the off the shelf announcement web part.

    How can I make these announcements without presenting the peripheral information or having to create a custom form?

  • Hi,

    Once your site is created and you have added the webpart then go to the webpart --> Edit.

    In the toolbar type select no toolbar. This will remove the option of adding new announcement. 

    I hope this will help you out.

    Thanks, Rahul Rashu
