Notification bar at top of site shown to new users pointing them to simple instructions

On http://getthedata.org/ or stackoverflow there is a pop-up bar for new users that give them some simple instructions.

Talking with users it is clear that some people are not clear how ckan.net (or other sites) work and what they are and are not 'allowed to do. This could help make this better.


  • Pop-up bar (based on a cookie or just being not logged in?) - uses ticket:938 (message flashing)
  • FAQ/instructions page (use the new wiki?)



  • Cost: 1h

This is now implemented, the notification links to the about page. We might want to update that page with better information, but that would be a different ticket.
