New vs Read Announcements

The program has an option to determine how long an announcement should be flagged as "new" for (item "1" above). "New" announcements have the added CSS style class "zen_announce_new", which makes them stand out from "Read" announcements (item "2" above). This setting is based on how many times the member has seen the announcement in question. The default number is to mark the announcement as "Read" after a single viewing. You can customize this by updating the "Mark as Seen" option from "Members > Announcements > Options".

Announcement Ordering

Announcements are ordered based on the "start date" selected when creating the announcement.
