I want to add a delete icon to the global messages in Magento 1.9. But it seems there is no template file for these messages (or at least, I can't find it in my installation and on the internet). Is there a way (preferably not using JavaScript (or jQuery) to append a button) to add a delete button to the messages?


override this block


To local


and do changes here.

There is a free extension for that. It allows you to show the session messages as floating divs and adds a close button to them, or it can even close the messages after a number of seconds.

If you don't want an extension, you can rewrite the method getGroupedHtml from the class Mage_Core_Block_Messages and insert your button in there.
