Alerts

Flash messages, or alerts, inform users of successful or pending actions. Use them sparingly. Don't show more than one at a time.

Default

Flash messages start off looking decently neutral—they're just light blue rounded rectangles.

<div class="flash">
  Flash message goes here.
</div>

You can put multiple paragraphs of text in a flash message—the last paragraph's bottom margin will be automatically override.

This is a longer flash message in it's own paragraph. It ends up looking something like this. If we keep adding more text, it'll eventually wrap to a new line.

And this is another paragraph.

<div class="flash">
  <p>This is a longer flash message in it's own paragraph. It ends up looking something like this. If we keep adding more text, it'll eventually wrap to a new line.</p>
  <p>And this is another paragraph.</p>
</div>

Should the need arise, you can quickly space out your flash message from surrounding content with a .flash-messages wrapper. Note the extra top and bottom margin in the example below.

Variations
