Hi mat,
Please refer to the following document to learn how to add a banner message



If you want to display the message at the top of your page, just put JS code at the bottom of the announcement to do the trick:

var $banner = AJS.$('#announcement-banner');
var $header = AJS.$('#header');


Does it work for you?

thanks but that below the jira menu bar. i would like it above. like in the attached screen shot. 

easy to do in confluence

I've edited my previous response to show you how to move the banner content to the before the header.

I hope this help.

that's great, thank you!
