  # Add a dismissible message to the view:

<% dismissible_message('site_welcome') do -%>
<p> Hello and welcome to our site. I hope you enjoy your stay. Feel free to look around.</p>
<% end -%>

  # Produces:
  <div class="dismissible_message" id="hide_dismissible_site_welcome">
    <p> Hello and welcome to our site. I hope you enjoy your stay. Feel free to look around.</p>
    <p>
      <a class="dismissible_link" href="#" onclick="document.cookie = 'hide_dismissible_site_welcome = 1; expires= Sun, Jan 17 2038 11:14:06 UTC; path=/';document.getElementById('hide_dismissible_site_welcome').style.display = 'none'; return false;">Don't show this again.</a>
    </p>
  </div>
  
  # Add A custom message
  <% dismissible_message('site_welcome', { :message => "Do not show this again" }) do -%>
  <p> Hello and welcome to our site. I hope you enjoy your stay. Feel free to look around.</p>
  <% end -%>
  
  # Only display this message if a previous dismissible message was dismissed.
  <% dismissible_message('cookie_two', { :message => "Do not show this again", :follows => "cookie_one" }) do -%>
  <p>Why did you dismiss the last message?</p>
  <% end -%>
