Please add the possibility to configure a small wiki message to be displayed on each page. Usage:

  • Welcome message ("Welcome to the HumourWiki, what do you think of this one?")
  • Warning message ("This wiki site is obsolate, please go to the new URL...")
  • Information ("The end of the month is looming, please fill your Activity Report")
  • ...

Today I have a suboptimal form of this feature, using the LeftMenu, but the location is not ideal. I also put a welcome/warning message on the Main page, but most people bookmark other pages directly, so they skip my notice. I am not sure where to locate this text though: top of the page (above page name), top of the content (under the "trail"),...

The way that I view it:

  • the message would be the content of a spĂ©cific Wiki page (e.g., Header or Footer, following the model of LeftMenu or LeftMenuFooter)
  • It would be displayed in a dedicated location provided by the default template, like LeftMenu, somewhere above the current page's text
  • Being a Wiki page, it would enable to display text, links, image, comment box, plugin result, whatever...
  • It would also enable the site administaror to specify an ACL for the message text itself
  • being a Wiki page complies with the Idea Use Wiki Markup for Administration policy.
