You can add notes, warnings, tips and other "admonition" elements to make parts of your content stand out. Admonitions is the term for collectively describing all of the notes, warnings and tips. Insert_Admonition.png

The admonition elements include Note, Caution, Warning, Danger, Notice , Important and Tip. You can add them from the Insert tab in Toolbar and some of them can be added with keyboard shortcuts, see Keyboard Shortcuts.

You can use the admonition elements in most types of block content, including paragraphs and tables. Paligo does not restrict how you use the elements, but you need to be aware that some industries have rules about how they are used. For example, in some industries, you must use a warning if there is a risk of injury.


Admonitions also called "safety messages" or "hazard statements" is an umbrella term used for note, important, notice, caution, warning, danger and tip elements.

By default, Paligo creates a label for each admonition element and does not include a title. The label adds the name of the element in the published content. For example, if you add a tip, the word "tip" is used as the label (shown as 1 in the following image).


The labels that Paligo generates, such as "tip" and "warning" are translated automatically for most languages.

If you prefer, you can add a title. Paligo will then use your title instead of generating a label. You will need to send it for translation.
