This extension provides several Bootstrap 4 based templates Contao CMS.

It's possible to use this extension in an installation where the default templates are required. To avoid wrong templates being loaded theres a feature called template automapping. Each bootstrap template has a different name (usually _bs) prefix than the default one. On runtime the template name get changed so you don't have to select the modified templates everywhere.

The automapping is only active if a page layout has the type bootstrap and you did not disable the automapping in the theme settings.

Following templates are provided:

** With configurable automapping **

  • com_bs_media comment template based on the Bootstraps media component (Note: It's using as a third party service).
  • member_default_bs for the member form using bootstrap form layout.
  • member_grouped_bs for the member form using bootstrap form layout.
  • mod_breadcrumb_bs for the breadcrumb module.
  • mod_comment_form_bs for a bootstrap based comment form.
  • mod_login_bs for the login form module.
  • mod_search_bs for the search module.

** Always mapped **

  • pagination_bs for the paginations (always mapped, even if automapping is disabled).

** Not mapped **

  • gallery_bs_carousel for a gallery using the carousel.
  • gallery_bs_grid for a grid based gallery.
  • nav_default as navigation templates.
  • rss_bs_list_group rss feed rendered as list group.
