Dashboard message area hidden

Permalink 0 2 Browser Info Environment
The message area that appears at the top of the dashboard pages doesn't appear any more as of 5.5.x. The html is still being output to the page but it's hidden due to styling in concrete/css/ccm.dashboard.css. Is there a good reason this message area isn't being shown any more? I have several add-ons that use this area to return information to the user. The styling of the area if you remove the display:none looks fine, so I wonder if this is just an oversight...

you mean messages like this: http://screencast.com/t/KXmMFlRkyXe4... ?

Yep. That's exactly what I mean. The CSS is hiding them.

Can't reproduce on 5.5.1.

Well, I'm not sure why you guys can't see the problem - maybe a different style of message box? - but it is a problem. Please take a look at concrete/css/ccm.dashboard.css and you'll see that line 5 is:
#ccm-dashboard-result-message{display:none;}

I just checked the source in github and the line is still there.

Yeah it's hidden by default but then we have javascript which resizes it to the size of the main column and fades it in.

Ah, that explains it. I probably need to include some JS into my single page then.

I would think you'd only need to do that if you'd overridden the dashboard theme at one point. Otherwise it should be picked up in the header automatically.

I think my code either pre-dated a standardized header or was based on code that pre-dated it. I have since upgraded the code to the new header. Thanks.
