Messages[edit]

There are a number of message panels, each with a Hide this message button to select when you no longer wish to see a message. A hidden message can be restored using the Toolbar.

  • Since version. Displays the version of the CMS or extension in which this message is first applicable.
  • Detailed message. A detailed message describing the change.
  • Action button. Messages are optionally able to have actionable items associated with them. When present, an action button will allow you to perform an action associated with the message.
  • Hide this message button. Messages can be hidden after review. By clicking this button, the message is no longer displayed in the component.

Release News[edit]

  • Release News. A list of Stable and Beta releases.
