For such a small plugin, it comes with many features.
The plugin comes with blocks inspired by three UI component libraries:
Each has their own unique style and variations, which can be configured on the block itself or in the sidebar options.
Chakra Alert Sidebar Options
Each block has several theme styles to choose from. For example, the Bootstrap alert block has a handful of available style options.
Bootstrap Alert Block with Several Style Options
Please view the example below how multiple blocks can look depending on the style chosen.
Different Alert Styles
In addition to different styles, each block has its own variants.
Chakra Alert Block With Warning Style and Solid Variant
Here's an example of a centered variant of the Warning style.

AlertsDLX comes with a custom icon selector that allows for easy insertion of different icons.
Simply click on the icon and you'll be able to select a new one.
The Icon Selector Makes Selecting an Icon Easy
In addition to icons, you can also insert your own SVGs instead of the pre-selected icons.
Insert Custom SVG Code for Custom Icons
Inspired by GenerateBlocks: The icon selector and SVG compatibility was inspired by the GenerateBlocks plugin.
AlertsDLX has icons from the following sources.
With the block options, you can enable or disable the title, description, icon, and button.
Enable or Disable Alert Options
For example, a button isn't shown by default. You can enable a button using the above options.
Chakra Alert with a Button
Buttons: the UI libraries didn't include button styles, but CTAs are important for alerts, so it was added in as a feature.
With the inclusions of buttons comes a mechanism to link out to your resource. Add a link and set it to launch in a new window, and modify the
relattributes for nofollow or sponsored links.
Button Link Options
The block has different alignment options, but if you choose a centered, wide, or full-width alignment, you may find the block to be too wide when viewed on the front-end.
With a Maximum Width option, you can adjust how wide your alert block can be when viewed at wider widths.
Maximum Width Option
Each width can be adjusted via pixel, percentage, or viewport width.
The styles for the alert blocks are all relative to a base font size. You can adjust this base to be smaller or bigger depending on your needs.
Adjust a Base Font Size
The Lato Google Font is used on the front-end to allow the alerts to stand out even more.
