Wrap all alerts with close functionality. To have your alerts animate out when closed, make sure they have the .fade and .in class already applied to them.



Just add data-dismiss="alert" to your close button to automatically give an alert close functionality.

<a class="close" data-dismiss="alert" href="#">&times;</a>

query('#my-alert').bind('closed', function () {
