Here is where you add and edit the content, style and settings of the notification.
2.1. Notification Content
Add the content you'd like to appear in your notification, here. Include links or any special formatting until you're happy with the message.
2.2. Notification Style
Next step is to choose the style of the notification. Here you can choose notification types, change the padding, position of appearance, animation, color, or even add a custom CSS.
- Notification style includes four types: Growl, Attached, Thumb Slider and Top Bar and each of them has its own custom animations, icons and appearance.
You can preview every change you make, as you go.
2.3 Notification Settings
In the Settings section, you can edit the notification name, select how many times, where and when the notification will show and when you like the notification to close.
First choose to whether to show the notification:

- once only
Then, select when exactly the notification will load on the selected page:
- when page loads
- on scroll
- on exit
- after time delay (and set time)
Finally, set then number of seconds after appearing, when the notification should close, where 0 = never.
