Adding close button in div to close the box

I have created a URL preview box for the entered URL.

Preview is shown in the div box. I want to add a close option on the right top. How could be done so that when users click on its box should be disabled?

Here is my fiddle.

<a class="fragment" href="google.com">
    <div>
    <img src ="http://placehold.it/116x116" alt="some description"/> 
    <h3>the title will go here</h3>
        <h4> www.myurlwill.com </h4>
    <p class="text">
        this is a short description yada yada peanuts etc this is a short description yada yada peanuts etc this is a short description yada yada peanuts etc this is a short description yada yada peanuts etcthis is a short description yada yada peanuts etc 
    </p>
</div>
</a>

code is inside php

Answer

Most simple way (assumed you want to remove the element)

<span id='close' onclick='this.parentNode.parentNode.parentNode.removeChild(this.parentNode.parentNode); return false;'>x</span>

Add this inside your div, an example here.

You may also use something like this

window.onload = function(){
    document.getElementById('close').onclick = function(){
        this.parentNode.parentNode.parentNode
        .removeChild(this.parentNode.parentNode);
        return false;
    };
};

An Example Here.

Css for close button

#close {
    float:right;
    display:inline-block;
    padding:2px 5px;
    background:#ccc;
}

You may add a hover effect like

#close:hover {
    float:right;
    display:inline-block;
    padding:2px 5px;
    background:#ccc;
    color:#fff;
}

Something like this one.
