Notices - minimise THIS one - not dismiss


Well-known member
I'd really like to use some Notices which the user could toggle to minimise and back.
At the moment AFAIK we can only Dismiss and Recall globally - that is the whole lot whatever's there on our permissions get Hidden or Displayed as a group.

I was thinking of making a simplicity dashboard for new or nervous users.

Where the minimised button (?) goes is a puzzle right now - later for that.

Could anyone start me off with how to make a Notice minimise to a link?

Where it's always minimized by default until you click a button?

Admin CP -> Appearance -> Templates -> PAGE_CONTAINER

Add the red code:

			<xen:if is="{$sidebar}">
				<div class="mainContainer">
					<div class="mainContent"></xen:if>
						<xen:include template="ad_above_top_breadcrumb" />
						<xen:if is="1">
							<a id="show_id" onclick="document.getElementById('spoiler_id').style.display=''; document.getElementById('show_id').style.display='none';" class="button">

							<span id="spoiler_id" style="display: none">
								<a onclick="document.getElementById('spoiler_id').style.display='none'; document.getElementById('show_id').style.display='';" class="button">

								<p class="importantMessage">

						<xen:hook name="page_container_breadcrumb_top">
						<div class="breadBoxTop">
							<xen:if is="{$topctrl}"><div class="topCtrl">{xen:raw $topctrl}</div></xen:if>
							<xen:include template="breadcrumb"><xen:set var="$microdata">1</xen:set></xen:include>
						<xen:include template="ad_below_top_breadcrumb" />
						<xen:hook name="page_container_notices">
						<xen:include template="notices" />						
The result:
