Introduction

The alert shortcode can be used to draw attention to important information on your WordPress website. Because of its many options, it can also be used as a general layout element for page building. Alerts are similar to the content box, promotional box, and content section shortcodes but are more basic.

This is an example of the alert shortcode

Block Alerts and Border Radius

You can show alerts that have a little more padding on them. Whitespace, the extra empty space around an element, is a powerful tool in the design of your website.

Another design tool is the ability to set the border radius (rounded corners) of the alert. Rounding the corners will add a softer look to the alert. Even a small amount goes a long way.

This is a block alert and has a little more padding. Choose any color you want for the alerts. Also notice that this alert has a border radius (rounded corners).

Close Button

Though not often used, you can add a close button to the alert shortcode. This will show an × in the corner of the alert that will hide the alert when clicked. The best use for this is to allow your users to dismiss a very large alert.

This alert has a close button.
