CMS status message

A “status message” is an important message that you want to show to users.

For instance: a user submit a form or does a specific action and you want to report the status of this action like “your profile has been updated” or “Your upgrade has been successful.”.

This module allows to easily display this kind of messages to your users.

Messages are displayed using Twitter bootstrap alerts.

You can add several messages: they will be displayed one after another.


Set a message:

msg = _('My important message.')

By default the message type is info. The title (the label at the beginning of the message) matches the message type:

  • ‘info’: ‘Info’
  • ‘success’: ‘Success’
  • ‘danger’: ‘Error’
  • ‘warning’: ‘Warning’

You can change message parameters:

msg = _('Watch out!')
if, mtype='warning', mtitle='Oh no')

Messages will be displayed like this:


Customize appereance

By default the alert box is added on top of <main /> content. If you want to customize this behavior just override or disable cms_status_message.add_status_message template.
