Admin Dashboard Message

Sometimes it's necessary to notify authors of something when they next log into your WP administration panel. This code will render a bold message at the top of the page.

Copy and paste the WordPress function into your theme's functions.php file or, if you sensibly have one installed, your custom functions plugin.
