The Awsom News Announcement plugin for Wordpress is an easy way to put a News Announcement area on your Index page without having to edit or change any of your theme files. Simply activate the plugin and it will appear above your posts whenever you want to announce something. You can also place code in your theme to place it in a custom spot if you wish. The Announcement can then be edited easily from the admin area like any regular page or post.
