This plugin extends the css and javascript of the default Elgg core system messages. This plugin allows one to change the background color and font color of the success, error and notice messages. This plugin also allows one change the time that a system message is displayed. One can also modify the fade opacity of the system messages. All these settings are accessible through the administration configuration settings.

This plugin doubles as a great skeleton plugin for anyone. If you want to learn more about plugins or are thinking about making your own, this plugin is a great place to learn the basics.

Please note that this is my very first plugin and cannot guarantee success for all or that there are no bugs. I have tested this plugin extensivelyon my Elgg 1.8.2 site and it works great for my situation.

Please report and bug and comments below and I will do my best to help.

Props to Brett Profitt for your guidance.
