    and i dont know what it is supposed to do, but im pretty thats not it
    thanks in advance!



  • {
    			module: "alert",
    			welcome_message: "Hello there",
    			position: "right",
    			effect: "slide",
    			display_time: "3500",
    		},
    

    thats how i set it in config.js

    I’m curious if an alert from another program would cause the same garbage…

    Most install I’ve seen don’t have the “position” indicator in use, matter of fact, all I have in mine is this:

    	{
    		module: "alert",
    	},
    

    This makes the alert app pop up over the screen if it’s triggered.

    If you have something else installed to trigger alerts manually, you could then use their instructions to test if alerts come up as designed. MMM-Remote-control is great for this (and other stuff too)
