Alert boxes: Display alert messages on the Dashboard & Create Guide pages

In this article

LibGuides provides admins with two alert boxes that they can use to share messages with users:

  • One box on the LibGuides dashboard, which users will see when the log in.
  • One box on the Create Guide page, which users will see when creating a new guide.

Think of these like bulletin boards for your system: you can use them to share reminders, style guidelines, contact info, and any other important messages users need to know. The content of each box can be customized just like a Rich Text/HTML content item.


Customizing the alert boxes

  1. Go to Admin > Alert Boxes.
    1. To edit the title of an alert box, click on the Edit Box () icon in the box's header.
    2. To add content an empty alert box, click on its Add Rich Text/HTML button.
    3. To edit or remove content from an alert box, click on its Edit () menu, and select the appropriate option from the dropdown.
