= Acts As Dismissible
Allows you to create messages in the user interface, which the users can dismiss once read.
The plugin stores the reference to the dismissed message in a cookie.
= Usage Examples
# 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 -%>
# Use your own dismiss text or button, and/or specify a callback to execute after the cookie has been set.
<%- dismissible_message('welcome_message', :dismiss_button => 'dismiss_welcome', :callback => 'Effect.BlindUp') do -%>
<p>Hide me!</p>
<a href="#" id="dismiss_welcome" class="hide" title="Hide">Hide</a>
<script type="text/javascript" charset="utf-8">
$('dismiss_welcome').observe('click', function(event){
dismiss_window_hide_dismissible_welcome_message();
});

The cookie implementation for this plugin is based off ideas from Court3 and DanP.
Rick Olson also helped clean up some of this code to make it more succinct.
