Uppdaterad: 2010-01-07

This post has not been updated yet, but I just wanted to show you how WP Update Message works. This is an update message box.

What is this?

Add a short note about the latest changes in the current post or page. Activate it and it work instantly. All the settings are optional.

Info and download

wp-admin – Update message box

This box is placed when editing a post or a page.

Update message box

wp-admin – Settings / Options

If you are not sure about a setting, just leave it and it will use the default value.

Update Message Admin

Settings explained

Published date format

The date the post or page was published for the first time. It uses the same parameters as PHP date. For example, to display a date like this ”2009-07-12, 18:10” would look like this:

Y-m-d, H:i

Updated date format

The date the post or page was updated last. It uses the same parameters as PHP date. For example, to display a date like this ”2009-07-12, 18:10” would look like this:

Y-m-d, H:i

Position

Where the update message box should be placed. You can choose by top, bottom, both or none.

Free position

If you don’t want to place the update message box by the predefined positions you can place it on your own. Select ”none” as position above. Then use the code below in your template:

<?php update_message_box(); ?>

It works only inside the loop.

HTML

If you want the box to look different you can write your own HTML. These will be replaced in the HTML code in your post / page:

  • %pd% = Published date
  • %ud% = Updated date
  • %ut% = Updated text

New row replacement

Even if a new row is inserted in HTML, it will not be displayed as a new row.

The default way to solve this is to close the paragraph-tag and start a new one when a new rows accurs. Another way could be to use ”<br />” instead. It’s your choice.

Style themes

You don’t have to be a programmer to use WP Update Message. There are themes to choose from. Hopefully some of them will fit your site.

If you want to style the update message box yourself, just set style theme to ”none” and add the style data into your theme style.css.

Save settings

Save your settings into the database. If you don’t save anything WP Update Message will use all the default values.

Delete settings

It removes the saved settings from the database. You can use it if you want to remove this plugin.

Style themes to choose from

The CSS style themes below are included from start and are available in wp-admin->Settings->Update message.

      Det hoppas jag verkligen. Ska ta mig tid till att sitta med det igen bara. Tiden är för mig en bristvara.

    Jag undrar över två saker;

    1. Hur gör man så man kan välja att antingen visa text A eller denna update message?

    2. Hur gör man för att kunna ha två sådana igång samtidigt?

    Hi, seems like a nice plugin, but I can’t get it to work in WPMU.
    Anyone experienced the same thing? Any solutions?
    Thanks!
