Edit Confluence page to display message/info box


I am looking for a way to display a red info macro or custom html at the top of my confluence space pages, and only in cases it's tagged with a specific label.  For example, if a page label includes "techonly" then I want the message box to be displayed and text with something like "Only a technician can assist with this issue"  

I looked a little at the decorator macros and found the #helpicon() but couldn't make it render even while testing.  

Any ideas on how to accomplish?  Good place for info?  

Thanks in advance.

Well I can't give you an answer, but some suggestions on how to solve this. I would write a user macro that displays  panel macro (or note), if a label is present on the page (fairly straightforward). And I will point you to another answer that should give you a starting point on how to read labels on a page.


Now this means the macro has to be added to each page, a bit of pain. But it could be made part of a template when creating a page.

Thanks Bill! (sorry for the delayed response!)I like the idea of adding the usermacro to the "main" template for the space.  Is there a special way to call it or a specific area to call it, like just after body?  ...a lot going on in there.
