    I am testing this over the weekend and plan on sending it to the HS updater on Monday.
    Other changes for the Alert section includes.

    * Fixed the Alert summary to pull the full text for an alert instead of only having a small portion of the alert when the amount of text is over 250 characters.

    * Added the text for any alert Instructions if available for the alert. Ex for a flood alert. Instructions: "Do not drive through flowing water. Nearly half of all flood fatalities are vehicle related. As little as 6 inches of water may cause you to lose control of your vehicle. Two feet of water will carry most vehicles away.This product along with additional weather and stream information is available at www.weather.gov/kc/."

    * The Alert Instruction text has been added to the trigger page and is available for speaking, emailing, or Pushover text (Pushover Plugin required).

    I have this fixed. I am going to make a .8 release. .8 will just be a few things to release before I finish the WU import and DarkSky Hourly Forecast.

    Yes, bottom line I'd like it to ignore any Alert with the word "Flood" in the title and not have it send me a pushover notification.

    Just to be clear, you want to put the word flood in one of the Not Contains, correct?

    Pretty simple really, I have two areas selected for IL, Lake and Cook. the rest of the options have All selected. If I have Flood in the filter as shown I get no alerts.

    Jeff, Was wondering if you had time to look at this. Storm season is upon us so the Alerts are important. however the 11, useless to me, flood alerts today including the 5 in the last 10 minutes has wife wanting me to turn them off.

    Right now, my first priority is getting some new providers added to try to keep the plugin alive.
    After that, I will start on new stuff. The Alert section rewrite has been high on my want list for a long time.
    Thanks for the update. I really like this plugin, looking forward to playing with the new features

    The ability to copy alert triggers to make it easy to create new ones when only a couple of parameters might change would be helpful.

    Have the same issue. I want a single alert trigger that matches all warnings except for ones specified in the not contains fields.

    For the alerts and triggers, an easy way to generate "test" alerts would be really helpful. Maybe a Test section under the alerts where you could fill in a form for the alert name, alert title, alert summary, category, urgency, severity, certainty, and area. You could fill all these in and click generate. Then the PI would evaluate this test alert as if it came from NOAA. After testing was done, you would have another button on the test tab that would remove this test alert.

    I plan to use the Alert triggers and filters to send pushovers with different priority and sounds for "Tornado Watch" and "Tornado Warnings". I bet others would be interested is those and Hurricane Watches and Warnings. I'm not sure on the level of work required in this ask.

    Maybe checkboxes for those types of alerts to make it easier. Of course with working filters I can create them but, it is hard to test functionality since they happen so rarely.
