Some sites need the ability to broadcast an announcement to all of their users. django-announcements was created precisely for this reason. How you present the announcement is up to you as the site-developer. When working with announcements that are presented on the website one feature is that they are only viewed once. A session variable will hold which announcements an user has viewed and exclude that from their display. announcements supports two different types of filtering of announcements:

  • site-wide (this can be presented to anonymous users)
  • non site-wide (these can be used a strictly a mailing if so desired)
  • members only (announcements are filtered based on the value of request.user)
