Ready bootstrap themes dont support all functions of default theme. For example search window does not expand after clicking on it. Or article view page on bootstrap loose it right article block (how to site info, section etc) which goes to the page bottom. There some new text is showing in make a submission page on bootstrap which I cannot modify or translate to another language. There is only several options for changing colors in exampled bootstrap themes (dont now why is so). I have tried to change them in bootstrap .less files but worked only 3 or 4 from many css colors. And so on
The Bootstrap3 theme is a community effort to provide a base theme for rapid customization. It implements an OJS journal using core bootstrap themes but avoids stepping beyond the core components wherever possible.
This makes it easier to drop in different third-party styles, like those bundled with the theme. But in most cases you will need to do a little bit more work with a child theme to really make it shine.
Artice page with bootstrap goes like one big and long block. In the original theme article page consists of 2 side by side blocks. Content is the same. If I could somehow bypass this problem it would be great. If there is a need of additional info I could provide it.
Attached additional screen of the text which appears only in bootstrap theme. It appears at the bottom of the “make a submission” page
Edit button throws me on the journal “Masthead” page where I don`t see this text at all.
As for changing colors I have tried to change color of “.alert-info” block (one of the standard bootstrap classes as I understand it) in variables.less file of my chosen bootstrap theme. Worked only this colors: #d9edf7#5bc0de#3399F3#3498DB. Changing to others had no effect on the appearance.
The color issue describes sounds like something else is happening. Maybe the colors you’re trying out aren’t valid color definitions, or you’re running into some other issue. Can you show some code you’re using that isn’t working?
