    I needed an extension to create a global welcome for the website I'm currently building, and found this little gem!

    It does exactly what is says on the tin. I had the extension installed and working on J3.2.2 within 10 minutes. The editor 'button' is a nice touch which makes entering the string very easy.

    I did have a small problem with the extension (which turned out to be a spelling mistake on their website) but a quick email to the Support Team resolved the problem.

    I received a very professional and courteous reply from Konstantinos within a couple of hours of emailing. Can't ask for better than that!

    This is a nice little gem of an extension!
