Adding Graphical Alerts and Admonitions

Admonitions help us to remark notes, ideas or important messages around the content. Use the following markup to build admonitions in this wiki:

||<class="lmimg blue"> ||||<class="lmtxt blue" (> ... ||

||<class="lmimg orange"> ||||<class="lmtxt orange" (> ... ||

||<class="lmimg green"> ||||<class="lmtxt green" (> ... ||

||<class="lmimg violet"> ||||<class="lmtxt violet" (> ... ||

||<class="lmimg red"> ||||<class="lmtxt red" (> ... ||

TIP: You also can combine icons with admonition messages:
||<class="lmimg orange"> attachment:ArtWork/WikiDesign/icon-admonition-idea.png ||||<class="lmtxt orange" (>  '''TIP:''' ... ||

Available icons to use in admonitions:
