d12 Message Blocks

This page is part of a series on WordPress Plugins.

Writing a series of posts about something? Use this message block to unite them. You can also include links to categories, tags, or other pages or posts here.

In addition to WordPress, I also use MediaWiki a lot. One of the things I enjoy most about MediaWiki is that I can create templates to use as message blocks across a number of pages. I wanted something similar in WordPress, at least with regard to appearance. Since it didn’t exist, I created it. Grab a copy from the WordPress plugin repository.

There are two types of message blocks. The first type already have a title. You only need to supply a description. The second type require you to supply your own title. You also have options for the type of border, as well as a number of color palettesĀ to match your website.

Need additional documentation? It’s on my wiki.
