Bootstrap CSS

Some Joomla 2.5 templates are shipped with Bootstrap. There are also Joomla 3 templates that are designed to work without Bootstrap. For these templates we built a switch to either disable or enable the Bootstrap that is shipped with our extensions.

Note: Only available for our 2.0 stable extensions.

Do I need this?

You almost never do. We developed our extensions in a way that they look great within 99.9% of all templates.

This switch is built for the edge cases and can have an unexpected outcome. That’s also the reason why there is no user interface for this switch.

How does it work?

Disabling or enabling the Bootstrap file can only be done on a template level since a website might be using several templates.

It is not possible to enable or disable the file only for DOCman but not for FILEman.

Joomla 2.5

On Joomla 2.5 our extensions load a bootstrap.css file by default.

Disabling this file is as easy as adding an empty file disable-koowa-bootstrap.txt to the root of your template directory:

/templates/[template]/disable-koowa-bootstrap.txt

Joomla 3

On Joomla 3 our extensions don’t load a bootstrap.css file by default.

Enabling this file is as easy as adding an empty file enable-koowa-bootstrap.txt to the root of your template directory:

/templates/[template]/enable-koowa-bootstrap.txt

Template update

Updating your template might remove the added file. Your template might also include or exclude Bootstrap classes that were/weren’t there before after upgrading.
