EMC2 Alert Boxes

EMC2 Alert Boxes make a great way to notify your visitors of anything!

EMC2 Alert Boxes uses jQuery and HTML5 animations to provide a great-looking, simple and functional alerting system. Alert boxes can be placed using the [emc2alert] shortcode or by calling the $().emc2alert() jQuery function!

Check the demo at http://alert.emc2innovation.com !

Easy to use! Insert a shortcode on any page using a quick-create TinyMCE icon, or create alerts on the fly using jQuery:

Shortcode: [emc2alert]This is some text![/emc2alert]
jQuery: $('body').emc2alert({ text:"This is some text!" });

Advanced Usage


[emc2alert type="success" style="normal" width="300px" position="top" wpbar="auto" visible="visible" closebtn="1" title="Introducing..." animate="true"]A great way to alert your visitors![/emc2alert]


  • type: "info" - "success", "warning", "error" also available
  • style: NULL - "normal" displays as block at shortcode location, or "fixed" for top or bottom of page
  • width: NULL - accepts position with units, ie "300px", "100%" or "5em"
  • position: "top" - If style="fixed", position can be set to top or "bottom" of page
  • wpbar: "auto" - Auto-detects WP Admin Bar. Can be set to TRUE or FALSE as well to set compensation.
  • visible: TRUE - Set to FALSE to hide
  • closebtn: FALSE - Set to TRUE to add a close button to the box
  • title: "Alert Title" - Box title
  • animate: FALSE - Set to TRUE to enable slideUp() and slideDown() jQuery animations on open and close!


$('body').emc2alert({           // Prepends Alert Box to 'body' element
    title: "Your Title",        // or $('myTitleDiv').html()
    text: "Your Message",       // or $('myMsgDiv').html()
    type: "info",               // 'info', 'warning', 'error', 'success' - determines bg colors
    style: "normal",            // 'normal', 'fixed' - in page or fixed to top or bottom
    visible: true,              // true, false - hides if necessary
    position: "top",            // 'top', 'bottom' - positions box on page
    width: null,                // '100%', '960px' - specify units
    closebtn: false,            // true, false - displays close button in corner
    wpbar: false,               // true, false, 'auto' - adds top margin to avoid admin bar, with auto-detect
    animate: false              // true, false - adds open/close animation
