Cautions, warnings, notes, and other notices

To warn, alert, notify, or provide useful information to the reader that isn’t part of the flow of text or needs to be highlighted, use one of the following notice types:

  • Note or Info
    Use this notice type for an informational note or message with the [ info ][ /info ] (without spaces) short code.


    Note: “Wide width” and “Full width” alignment need to be enabled by the theme of your site.

  • Tip
    Use this notice type to highlight tips and recommended actions with the [ tip ][ /tip ] (without spaces) short code.


    Tip: You can use the slash command to insert a new blockBlock Block is the abstract term used to describe units of markup that, composed together, form the content or layout of a webpage using the WordPress editor. The idea combines concepts of what in the past may have achieved with shortcodes, custom HTML, and embed discovery into a single consistent API and user experience..

  • Caution or Alert
    Use this notice type to suggest readers to proceed with caution and alert them to important messages with the [ alert ][ /alert ] (without spaces) short code.


    Caution: Using a deprecated version may cause different outcomes.

  • Warning
    When something is particularly precarious use this notice type with the [ warning ][ /warning ] (without spaces) short code. A warning is generally stricter and more rigid than a caution.


    Warning: Making changes to the code while running the server could cause errors in your databases; specifically, corrupted tables or duplicate values.

  • Tutorial or Step
    Use this notice type to indicate a step or procedure in a tutorial with the [ tutorial ][ /tutorial ] (without spaces) short code.


    Step: Move the selected file to this folder.

Avoid grouping two or more notices together. Consider rewriting or rearranging the content to avoid confusion.
