Steps to create the announcement bar
To begin creating your announcement bar, open the Insert tab, and drag a Section block onto your page.
Double-click the default text in the Section and change it to your own text.
Next, change the background color of the Section. Select the Section, and on the Style tab, scroll down to the Background section and choose a new color.
Now, change the text color. Select the Text block, and on the Style tab scroll down to the Typography section and select a color.
Finally, adjust the padding in the Section block to reduce the height of the announcement bar.
Select the Section, and on the Style tab, scroll down to Margins and Padding and change the default 50px top and bottom padding to 10px each.
The announcement bar looks like the one below once published.
