The first public beta of MR Alert Blocks has now been released. Borrowing heavily from Andrew Lima’s original implementation, and seeking inspiration from the alert boxes I have created in the past, I wanted to give myself an easy and reliable way to create alert boxes. And since Alert Boxes are hard, I have made it apart of my support package.
You can also download it right here, right now (ZIP).

Credit Where Credit is Due
This plugin is a fork of Andrew Lima’s alert box plugin called Simple Alert Blocks.
The plugin borrows heavily from GenerateBlocks and I was even lazy enough to leave most of the class and style attributes the same as it is obvious if you read the plugin’s code that it is an obvious fork.
True to its form, GenerateBlocks can do most anything.

Alert Block Usage and UI
The alert block can be as simple as inserting the block, or you can go crazy and customize the alert exactly to your liking.
Options and Even More Options
The block enables simple input and output if that’s what you’d like. Responsive styles may be coming soon depending on the reception of the plugin, and it is doubtful it’ll be released on .org.
Sample Crazy Output
Since the block is so easy to insert without messing with too many options, you can also go a bit crazy customizing the alert box. For example, here’s one with a background gradient, top icon, title, content, and button.

The plugin is likely not ready for production use, but you are welcome to give it a try to get some real-world testing out of it.
Some plans in the future depending on the up-tick of this block:
- Google Fonts Integration
- More Icon SVG options
- Responsive options
- Container box shadow
- Button enhancements
