Users running a non-download version of Vanilla (pulled from github), on branch release/2019.016 or master from the last 2 weeks should upgrade to release/2019.017 or latest master for security reasons. Downloaded official open sources releases are not affected.

More Messages Positions 1.0.1

Adds more positions to the dashboard Appearance/Messages interface. Knowledge and editing of your theme template may be required to add support for custom positions.

As standard, Vanilla 2 supports two positions for Messages:
1. Above Main Content
2. Below Sidebar

If you want to easily add more positions then this is the plugin for you.

As it is, the plugin adds two more positions:
1. AfterBanner
2. BeforeSidebar

To fully support these two new positions you will need to edit your theme template (I edited the file located at vanilla/themes/themename/views/default.master.tpl) to include the following lines:

{event name="AfterBanner"}
{event name="BeforeSidebar"}

You can easily add even more positions if you know a little PHP. Simply following the examples in the file, duplicating and changing the code to display your new message at your new event hook location.

Please ask the community for support if you get stuck modifying this plugin.
