Home Why is Bootstrap alert invisible?
 I am trying to create an alert in my Asp.Net Mvc application. I am using this html, basically taken straight from the Bootstrap website: 
 The problem is that when I load the page, the alert takes up the proper space on the page, but is invisible. I can find the close button by slowly strafing my mouse over the region, and clicking on it does dismiss the alert, but at no point is anything visible. I thought that z-index: 1 might have fixed it, but no such luck. I have also tested this on a new Asp.Net project with the same problem. How do I get the alert to display properly?
