Memo v1.2

Posted January 8, 2012, in Administrative Interface.


Memo is a plugin for Movable Type and Melody that can display a memo on the Edit Entry/Page screen, as well as a global message on all CMS screens.


Memo can: * display a global message on top of every CMS screen; * place a text box on top of the other widgets in the right column of the entries and pages edit screen. The memo display and text are customizable per blog.


  1. Download Memo.
  2. Uncompress and move the Memo directory to the MT plugins directory. More in-depth plugin installation instructions.
  3. Customize your memo in the plugin preferences at the blog or site level.


For each blog where you want a memo displayed, go to the plugin preferences and:

  1. Tick the “Display a memo on Edit Entry/Page screens” checkbox (unchecking it will prevent the memo to show up).
  2. Enter a short title (defaults to “Memo” otherwise).
  3. Enter the text of the memo (formatted as HTML). Hint: HTML <p>...</p> paragraphs or <ul><li>...</li></ul> lists work best.

To display a global message on top of all screens in the CMS:

  1. Go to the global plugins page and click on the Memo Settings tab.
  2. Tick the “Display a global message” checkbox (unchecking it will prevent the message to show up).
  3. (Optional) enter a CSS Class to style the message using MT’s own CSS classes for messages (i.e. info, alert, error, beta).
  4. Enter the message (formatted as HTML) in “Message Body”. Note: this code will be wrapped into a <div id="global-memo" class="msg msg-class">...</div> block, where class will be replaced by whatever you put into the CSS Class field above.


Ce plugin parle français. ;-)

Wow, just what I was looking for. I was trying to keep everything organized on little slips of paper that I had next to my computer, but you quickly loose the overview of what you had planned and when. My girlfriend also uses it on her blog, and even wrote about it in her post Being Mindful To Your Desires which is more about being thankful for the small things in life. But for me this is huge. Thanks!
