There is also a bootstrap grid editor

Well, that's exactly what we have wrappers and sections for.
If you build grids inside individual Editable Text sections (which is also perfectly fine), you lose the ability to use different section types within this grid.

Use whatever suits you best - Typesetter makes no restrictions in this regard.

I just cant put or draw  pictures  into a bootstrap grid and not several pictures into  a row

  1. Create a wrapper section and give it the class row
  2. Add Simple Image sections, move them into the wrapper
  3. Give them the col- classes you want
  4. Voila!

… cannot resize a picture , if i put it to 'scale to fit.

Of course, you cannot have both at the same time.

Still much to do !

Don't hesitate.

You are using Typesetter's standard Image type. Simple Image is a plugin you can download from my Typesetter Addons Website. After installation there will be a new section type.

Sorry - but simple image (see my example )

I cannot see any simple image sections in your example.

the image is not magnified,

Use the 'scale to fit' setting which acts like img-fluid. The 'shrink o fit' default will act like img-responsive.

I think, Simple Image can do most of your resizing needs.


I was looking for a js…

function directResize() {
  img = new Image();
  img.src = sourceImage; 

I would advise against using such scripts that define variables in the global scope.
It indicates poor programming skills.

Topic: Typesetter without Jquery and updated bootstrap

We're currently at Typesetter version 5.2-rc (release candidate) on GitHub.

TS 5.2 comes with Bootstrap 4.4 as well as a lot of other new things
We will continue to support Bootstrap 3 in future versions because many existing websites are using BS3 based themes. That's why we still use jQuery 2 - Bootstrap 3 is not compatible with  jQuery 3.x.

For jQuery itself: Typesetter's admin JS is jQuery, alomst every single par of it. Same applies to finder (the file manager) and some other thirdparty components. Almost every Typersetter plugin I know uses jQuery. It's simply everywhere.

So, to answer your question: Stripping off jQuery from Typesetter (and use sth. else instead, like react, angular, vue, you name it) would be a rewrite of the entire client side and large parts of the backend. It would break all backward compatibility, lose some themes and all plugins. Even if it looked the same, it would be a completely new CMS.

If I had the time and knowledge to do this, I'd rather start over.

Topic: After Successful Installation: SCSS Compile Error

… and everything works as it should.
So my bad, sorry for disturbing. ;)

You're welcome. Glad to hear it works now.
It would have been disturbing to me if the files were actually there ;)

Topic: After Successful Installation: SCSS Compile Error

Seems as if something went wrong with the SCSS compiling to CSS.

Definitely. From the error messages it appears that Typesetter fails to import the Bootstrap 3 SCSS sources from /typesetter/include/thirdparty/Bootstrap3/scss
Both the missing mixin and the variable are defined there.

Since you don't get other errors like memory exhaustion, I would assume that these files are actually missing. Please check the abovementioned folder on your server and compare it with the one from the installation ZIP. If there are files missing or file sizes don't match, maybe sth. went wrong with the file transfer (FTP, SFTP, whatever you used). In such cases other files may also be missing.

Unlikely but possible: sometimes extracting the installer ZIP archive to a local Disk or LAN subdirectory with an already extremely long path may exceed the max local path length of the OS (=~ 256 characters NTFS, Ext3 and Ext4). However, you should have been notified then. This happens to me from time to time when archiving projects on my NAS

If all files are ok on your server, we'll have to check other possible causes.

BTW: There is also Typesetter 5.2 RC1 (release candidate) on GitHub (Download the master ZIP) You might want to check it out. 5.2 Will be released in the near future.
