Manly Announcements "What's New" Page:

Announcements are displayed in order of date submitted. This Announcements page is accessible from the home page of ManlyAustralia.com.

How frequently can I post new Announcements?

  • Enhanced Profiles can post a new Announcement every 7 days.
  • Standard Profiles can post a new Announcement every 14 days.
  • Economy Profiles can post a new Announcement every 21 days.

 

How long is the Announcement displayed for?

Announcements are displayed for up to 31 days from the time of posting.

 

Why do Announcements expire?

Businesses and organisations choosing to regularly use this free Announcement service will receive the biggest benefit. Having Announcements expire after 31 days ensures all Announcements featured on ManlyAustralia.com are current, thus enhancing the overall visitor experience.

 

What should I include in my Announcement?

What you choose to include in your Announcement is totally up to you.

Just like browsing a newspaper or a magazine, the purpose of the Announcement service is to provide you with the opportunity to encourage ManlyAustralia.com visitors to click through to your Profile Page. Therefore you will want to ensure that your Announcement is of interest and engages visitors.

How do I get my Announcement to appear on the Home Page?

Keeping the system fair for everyone, the most recently posted Announcement will appear on the Home Page. The next three most recently posted Announcements will also appear within the "What's New" slider feature on the ManlyAustralia.com Home Page.

If no other business or organisation chooses to post an Announcement then your Announcement may appear on the home page for a longer period.

The home page feature also includes a link to a centralised Manly & Northern Beaches "What's New" Page. This page displays all currently active Announcements in order of date originally posted.

 

Can I change the Announcement once posted?

Yes. If you wish to change the wording,  (or choose a different image accompanying an existing Announcement), you can do so at any time.

Will my display position change on the centralised "What's New" Announcements Page if I edit an existing Announcement?

No. This ensures that all businesses and organisations receive equal opportunity to appear on the top of the "What's New" Announcements Page and the page is not dominated by the one business or organisation regularly editing their existing Announcement.

 

What happens if I edit my Announcement?

By editing your Announcement, both the original date added and last modified date will display on the centralised Announcement page.

 

Can I delete my Announcement?

No. You can however deactivate your Announcement if you no longer wish for your Announcement to be displayed. You can also edit your existing Announcement, even if your Announcement is not active. You can then reactivate your Announcement. The original date added will remain unchanged.

 

How many active Announcements can I have at any given time?

The number of Announcements you can feature on the Announcements page depends on your Profile Level. Announcements can be active for a maximum of 31 days. Therefore the maximum number of active Announcements would be as follows:

  • Enhanced Profiles can have a maximum of 5 Announcements.
  • Standard Profiles can have a maximum of 3 Announcements.
  • Economy Profiles can have a maximum of 2 Announcements.

Example for Economy Profile:

  • Announcement posted on 1st of the month expires on 31st of month.
  • Announcement posted on 22nd of the month expires on 22nd of the following month.
  • From the 22nd to the 31st of the month there could be 2 active Announcements.

 

Why can I not post a new Announcement?

If you have recently posted an Announcement, you will not have the ability to post a new Announcement until the specified date and time in the administration system. You can however edit an existing Announcement.

Announcement posting frequency:

  • Enhanced Profiles can post a new Announcement every 7 days
  • Standard Profiles can post a new Announcement every 14 days, and
  • Economy Profiles can post a new Announcement every 21 days.
