Minimize

Wrap any text and an optional dismiss button in .alert and one of the four contextual classes (e.g., .alert-success) for basic alert messages.

No default class

Alerts don't have default classes, only base and modifier classes. A default gray alert doesn't make too much sense, so you're required to specify a type via contextual class. Choose from success, info, warning, or danger.

Copy
<div class="alert alert-success" role="alert">...</div>
<div class="alert alert-info" role="alert">...</div>
<div class="alert alert-warning" role="alert">...</div>
<div class="alert alert-danger" role="alert">...</div>

Dismissible alerts

Build on any alert by adding an optional .alert-dismissible and close button.

Requires JavaScript alert plugin

For fully functioning, dismissible alerts, you must use the alerts JavaScript plugin.

Copy
<div class="alert alert-warning alert-dismissible" role="alert">
  <button type="button" class="close" data-dismiss="alert" aria-label="Close"><span aria-hidden="true">&times;</span></button>
  <strong>Warning!</strong> Better check yourself, you're not looking too good.
</div>

Ensure proper behavior across all devices

Be sure to use the <button> element with the data-dismiss="alert" data attribute.

Use the .alert-link utility class to quickly provide matching colored links within any alert.

Copy
<div class="alert alert-success" role="alert">
  <a href="#" class="alert-link">...</a>
</div>
<div class="alert alert-info" role="alert">
  <a href="#" class="alert-link">...</a>
</div>
<div class="alert alert-warning" role="alert">
  <a href="#" class="alert-link">...</a>
</div>
<div class="alert alert-danger" role="alert">
  <a href="#" class="alert-link">...</a>
</div>
