Altering system messages

Hello there, i am developing a plugin that sends messages to the user via system_message what a certain event and condition met, but i would like them to be more visible to the user so my question is, can i make those messages appear in the middle of the screen instead of at the right side?

  • System messages layout is defined in CSS in


    (partly also customized for example in the Aalborg theme plugin in these files overriding the core CSS files).

    Search for the classes containing "elgg-message" and "elgg-state" in their names (there are several classes for different kind of messages). Best would be to customize the CSS in a plugin of your own and not alter the core files.
