Wire::message() method

Record an informational or “success” message in the system-wide notices.

This method automatically identifies the message as coming from this class.


$this->message("This is the notice text");
$this->message("This notice is also logged", true);
$this->message("This notice is only shown in debug mode", Notice::debug);
$this->message("This notice allows <em>markup</em>", Notice::allowMarkup);
$this->message("Notice using multiple flags", Notice::debug | Notice::logOnly);


// basic usage

// usage with all arguments
$wire->message($text, $flags = 0);

Thanks are due to ProcessWire and the amazing system and set of modules that are in place.” —Unni Krishnan, Founder of PigtailPundits
