Is there a D7 module that allows you to create a content type to displayed as a system message?

Something like http://drupal.org/project/user_alert but gets displayed in the system messages.


It would be a lot of overhead for this one function but Rules can trigger arbitrary system messages with Token support. Here is a screencast by Node One which can give you an overview and he does the system message example in a couple of the videos. I think that if you need extended interaction with users Rules can be very helpful.

  • I considered this. However, is there a way to keep the message shown to all users until the node is deleted? – user842 Jun 10 '11 at 17:32
  • I'm not sure what your particular case is. However, in the video, Johan Falk shows a case of using the Flag module Rule integration. A rule can be created where if a flag on the node is set, the rule will trigger a system message to be shown until the flag is either unset or the node is deleted or another condition is met such as the node is unpublished. – Adam S Jun 10 '11 at 18:10
