I have used Summernote in other projects ( same setup except using Bootstrap 4) and it just worked when i looked to enable summernote. In this project Bootstrap 5 i got the error. I needed it in a modal so initally tried it there got the notification and then tried on the page same error.

Where did you get this error exactly?
Also - are you sure you have added jquery on your page?

See screenshots

Hi Teodor, George,

Any thoughts??



We’ve not enabled Summernote component for Bootstrap 5 pages. It natively supports Bootstrap 4, however it should work fine on Bootstrap 5 pages as well, so we will fix this in the next update.
Meanwhile you can just add the Summernote Lite textarea on your page instead of trying to convert the textarea to Summernote component.

still not fixed on wappler 4.0.1

Is this fixed? Just had this ‘error’ today.

Adding the
is="dmx-summernote" dmx-bind:toolbar=""
to an already created textarea fixed the problem

PS First create an empty summernote lite textarea so all relative files are included

Unfortunately Summernote for Bootstrap is not fully Bootstrap 5 compatible.

You can use the Summernote Lite version, which should work always.

Still no progress on this?
