# Admonitions#

Admonitions (also known as callouts) highlight a particular block of text, that exists slightly apart from the narrative of your page, such as a note or a warning.

Admonitions are a special case of directive extensions. It is advised to use admonitions with the colon_fence extension, which signify that the content of the block is also MyST Markdown.

## 2.  Admonition titles#

To provide a custom title for an admonition, use the admonition directive. If you also want to style the admonition as one of the core admonition types, you can use the admonition directive with the class option.

:::{admonition} My custom title with *Markdown*!
:class: tip

This is a custom title for a tip admonition.
:::


My custom title with Markdown!

## 3.  Collapsible admonitions#

The sphinx-togglebutton extension allows you to create collapsible admonitions, by adding a dropdown class to the admonition.

:::{note}
:class: dropdown

This admonition has been collapsed,
meaning you can add longer form content here,
without it taking up too much space on the page.
