Bootstrap 3 Layouts

Compatible Joomla! 3

Integrate Visforms with Bootstrap 3 templates

This feature is part of the Visforms Subscription and not available in the free Visforms version..

In order to fit perfectly into the look an feel of your website, Visforms does not come with lots of own styling but tries to use the styles provided by your template.

This approach is supported by Joomla! itself, because Joomla! has decided to create HTML-Code that meets the requirements of a specific standard - the Boostrap 2.3.2 standard. Thus, using Bootstrap 2.3.2 styles your website will "look good" without any further action. Following this example, Visforms creates HTML code that meets the requirements of the Bootstrap 2.3.2 standards.

Since Joomla! 3 was intruduced some years hence, Bootstrap has been developed further on (and improved). That is, why some templates use the newer Bootstrap 3 standard, although it is not fully compatible with Joomla! 3. Sometimes compatibility with Joomla! 3 is provided through legacy css code. (For example by the Helix 3 template framework).

Especially concerning forms, Bootstrap 3 and Bootstrap 2.3.2 are quite different and our Bootstrap 2.3.2 layouts which are part of the Visforms core, do not work very good on Bootstrap 3 templates.

This extension will close this gap and provide Visforms users with Bootstrap 3 templates with additional layouts for Visforms that fit into Bootstrap 3 templates.

Please note: You only need this extension if you use a pure Bootstrap 3 template without Bootstrap 2.3.2 legacy CSS. Please asked your template developer first, whether there is Boostrap 2.3.2 backwards compatibility in your template, before you order this extension!
