Titles, labels, and icons in admonitions

An admonition can optionally have a title. If no title is used, by default a "label" is output (e.g "Warning". This label string is automatically inserted, so you do not have to type "Warning" etc. The label string is automatically translated to most common languages if you have translations of your content.

If a title is used, then that will be used instead of the label.

By default, most admonitions will also automatically output an icon. You can either disable this, or modify in the Layout Editor which admonitions you want to have icons, and upload your own icons. For HTML/HTML5 you can modify it using CSS.

Converting admonitions

You can easily convert one admonition type to another one, e.g a warning to a note

  1. Just place the cursor in the element you want to convert (at the top of the element, so that it's selected in the Element Structure Menu).

  2. Then either use the dropdown in the toolbar to select the admonition type you want to convert to, or just hit the keyboard shortcut for that admonition type.


While it would be unusual, should you ever need to insert an admonition inside another admonition, you can still do so using the Element Context Menu.
