@DownPW exactly. Not really a new concept, and in all honesty, not something I’ve ever used.
If you consider the need to add links and references, or citations, you’d need to be able to see other parts of the screen!
So currently nodebb uses bootstrap 3 from what I understand. Is it possible to use a newer version of bootstrap? Or would that just interfere with the rest of the website?
I have no problem writing custom css, it is just that boot strap is already implemented.
@phenomlab oh I was just thinking of using a newer bootstrap to design the blog page and the home page. I can use vanilla css. I just thought that bootstrap is already integrated that it would just be quicker and easier. Bootstrap 3 doesn’t have some of those newer features of course.
Also by using plain css it will be easier to keep updated and such.
@Madchatthew just read this
I do recall reading this since time ago but forgot all about it until this recent discussion. It seems that there is an intention to move away from bootstrap 3.
I don’t think it’ll be as simple as just calling the framework you want without leveraging the newer quoted boilerplates though. Based on this, it would still be a significant effort to introduce a new framework into existing themes without there being conflicts.
