I’m looking for help on how to add an information banner below the main menu of the website. This can be seen here:

This would allow us to post important messages for customers about shipping and promotions etc.

The above link at the time of writing shows 2 blocks, one for shipping and another about 10% discount. I would like to know how to add 2 or 3 banners here.

The above would need to be responsive and possibly disappear on mobile devices if needed.

Hi Henry,

I know the answer to this one as I had to do this a year or so ago with the Ultimo theme.

Basically this requires the layout xml file to be altered to insert a new code block under the mega menu. It was tricky and I don’t have access to the code to do this anymore.

However… Shouldn’t cost more than $30 for a freelancer to do it for you and tie it to a static block.
