Create an alert bar that can be edited like a normal post and placed anywhere in your site via the [fiatalert] shortcode.
Does exactly what I need, had to edit the php so the text would align properly for me. To get the close button to work you need bootstrap.js, it says so in the readme file.
Use the following steps to make this plugin work flawless. Hopefully the dev will see this and update.
Goto edit plugin.
Edit file fiat-alert-bar/fiatalert.php
edit the following 2 lines so they look as they do below:
echo '<div class="fiat-alert"> </br>';
echo '<button type="button" class="close" data-dismiss="alert" style="padding: 5px 5px 10px 0px;">×</button>';
Also make sure to install bootstrap.js. You can do that by installing
and then selecting all components once installed.
The plugin works very nicely. I've had only one issue with this plugin on one site, however on 8 of the other WordPress instances I use, it works flawlessly.
It is very lightweight and works great! Very customizable.
This should have been perfect for my purposes - a closeable notification bar that can be added as a shortcode. Unfortunately the close option is missing, and there seems to be no options for styling.
