Dismissible alerts

Any alert can be made dismissible by adding an optional .alert-dismissible class and close button. For dismissible alert to work you need to include the jQuery and bootstrap JavaScript plugin. Include the following javascript inside <head> .. </head> tag.

<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.2.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="JS/bootstrap.min.js"></script>

Now to create dismissible alert,

<div class="alert alert-warning alert-dismissible" >
     <button type="button" class="close" data-dismiss = "alert" aria-label="Close">
     <span >&times;</span></button> 
     <strong>Warning!</strong> This alert box indicates a warning that might need attention.
</div>
