How to use theme manager with Bootstrap 5

I have bootstrap 5 local selected in the project
When i try to change the colour of warning (from default orange to pink) i see no changes on any of the pages

I clicked the rocket icon too

What am i doing wrong ?


A few things to try:

  1. is bootstrap 5 local on your pages framework I see it’s the default but if for any reason it’s not actually on your pages
  2. the 2 buttons to the right of the rocket are used to quickly generate and update the themes did you try those too?
  3. lastly maybe refresh the page and see if it shows the changes

Also in project settings there is a option to use bootstrap 5

These are just a few suggestions hope it helps

Make sure Bootstrap 5 is selected as design framework in the project general options.

My project settings did have bootstrap

While the colour is not updating on any of the pages it is updating in the Bootstrap preview page

On this preview page the code is

<link rel="stylesheet" href="bootstrap/5/css/bootstrap.min.css" />

whereas on all my pages the code is

<link rel="stylesheet" href="bootstrap/5/slate/bootstrap.min.css" />

On your pages if you look under add frameworks

Is this also bootstrap 5 local sounds like this could be bootstrap 5 slate?

Yes it is. I thought theme manager meant we could edit existing theme so for example if i want everything of slate except a few changes

Now as i understand it , theme manager is to edit the base bootstrap only?

In that case if i want to have something exactly like slate, like the dropdown items have a dark backgound colour, how would i replicate that in the base theme ?

You need to include Bootstrap 5 local, not a Bootswatch theme!
