Building your first Admin Notice

Description

Piklist makes it super easy to create admin notices in WordPress, usually with no PHP.

New to Piklist?
  • In your parts/notices/ folder create a new PHP file to hold your notice code. This file can be named anything you want.
  • Add the following to the top of your file:

    <?php
    /*
    Notice Type: info
    Dismiss: true
    */
    ?>
    

This simple comment block, creates an admin notice in the WordPress “info” style. And allows the user to dismiss it.

  • Underneath the comment block add your message:

    <p>The site will be offline tomorrow night for maintenance.</p>
    

That’s it!
