Will the banner hide my content

Only if you have other fixed elements at the top or bttom on your page (like a menu bar, header or cookie notice). If you have a fixed element at the top, use the bottom position option and vice versa. For all other page content, the banner automatically detects its own height and applies padding to the top or bottom of the page. This makes sure no content is hidden.

What font does the banner use

The banner font is Arial, which is universal font, available on all devices.

Works as advertized. Would be great to have a cross to hide the bar, to add CSS to customize the font, the button shape, the text and button colors separately, and the bar height. Pretty cool already !
