How can I put a space message (on all pages) to a certain user group in Confluence

I want a certain an internal group to see information on all pages in a space. How do I accomplish that? Can I use Site Layouts and set a certain parameter to make sure that it is only the internal group that sees the information.

May be you can do it by customising the PageLayout

I tried to hack something quickly and it worked...

#set ($userGroups = $userAccessor.getGroupNames($action.authenticatedUser))
#set ($groupToMatch = "confluence-administrators")
#foreach ($group in $userGroups)
  #if($group == $groupToMatch)
    <p>Hello admin!</p>

to put in a PageLayout before body (for non documentation theme spaces)

<div id="main-content" class="wiki-content">

But, the code will also work for Confluence space layouts / site layouts

The Public Annoucement Service add-on can do this. It's free too.

Hi David, Thanks for the answer. The plugin can set an application level message but not on space level which is what I am looking for, but it is an useful plugin!
