  • Create static block from admin content->block->add new block and enter your discount message in static block. Then call this new static block in notice.phtml with block identifier. Jun 5, 2017 at 6:20

  • Ha..ha.. Yeah! Okay! Never mind! Jun 11, 2017 at 7:04

AFAIK, we can use Widget: CONTENT > Widgets. Choose CMS static Block type. In the Layout Updates. Choose Page Top container (need to test again, not test yet): enter image description here

  • How this can be done pro-grammatically? any suggesions Nov 29, 2019 at 13:55

The Best way to do this is using Magento build in widgets. Please follow the given instructions:

  1. Create a new static block in admin that will contain your coupon code HTML.

  2. Create a new widget as follow:

    Content >> Widgets >> Click "Add widget" Button.

From the widget form, select the following:

StoreFront Properties Tab

Type => CMS static block

Design Theme => Your custom theme (Press continue button)

Widget Title => Widget Name

Assign to Store Views => All

Layout Updates Section:

Display On => All Pages

Container => Page Header 

Widget Option Tab

Select the newly created static block here

This is how you can show your custom messages at the top of the page.
