How to Customize Joomla Warning Messages

How to Customize Joomla Warnings Messages

One of the customer questions we received this week was about Joomla warning messages.

These messages are often displayed on the front of your site. For example, you'll see a warning if you enter an incorrect username or password during login. You may also see these messages in the Joomla admin.

In this guide, we'll show you multiple ways to customize these messages:

  • How to change the text of the message of the warning
  • How to use your own text instead of "Warning"
  • How to add an image to the warning box
