Bootstrap v2.3.1 slide up and down panel -- how to

Hi experts,

I'd like to build a slide down/slide up panel that would be located at the top of the webpage. When page loads, the panel, with some text in it would slide down. There would be a js timer for 5 secs, then the panel would slide back up. There would have to be a 'X' close button that needs to close the panel. I need this in bootstrap v 2.3, since that is the version in our code. I've seen SO articles detailing this functionality with jquery UI and such, but I didn't see any pure bootstrap v2.3 panel. Is this possible?

It appears this could be done with bootstrap-transition.js

If you follow the code example in the modal below the transitions area you can set a timer in your js code to hide(transition/fade) the panel or modal back up when you hit the x or when the time has reached 5 seconds.

But wouldn't the modal grey out the rest of the page? I need a panel/banner at the top of page, that loads along with the rest of the page, and then after x seconds, slides up, and also has a close (X) button.

It grays out the page momentarily and causes focus to the modal itself. The gray screen is gone once the modal is not the focus of the screen.

Another option is using this.
