Opens a dialog with a predefined HTML content and title.


{% button action={dialog title="Wisdom" text="<p>The world is a pancake.</p>"} %}

This opens a dialog with the title “Wisdom”. The dialog is empty except for the text “The world is a pancake”.

backdrop optional boolean (0, 1), or the string ‘static’ for a modal dialog (does not close on backdrop click); default 1
