Attributes needed on SCRIPT and LINK tags

Please allow custom attributes on files included or linked, this is limiting the work with many jquery libraries.


  1. <link href="print.css" rel="stylesheet" media="print" />
  2. <script type="importmap">{"imports": {"three": "./assets/js/three.module.mjs"}}</script>

Can you be more specific? How does a CSS file have “custom attributes?” I’ve never heard of this.

Hello @printninja
sorry I meant link and script element not CSS
Certain libraries from, when downloaded, uses attributes in the examples, in many cases required, I cannot remember which but please refer to <link>: The External Resource Link element - HTML: HyperText Markup Language | MDN

Thanks for correction, I should have paid attention, this will create commotion

Have you read the program’s documentation yet? HTML attributes can be added easily through the Attributes panel…

Read about this here…

There is a list of predefined link relationships available via the Options > Link Options panel…

hi @printninja
We’re talking about different things :smiley:, I meant link element as in <link href="print.css" rel="stylesheet" media="print" /> not hyperlink, and a script tag as in <script type="importmap">{"imports": {"three": "./assets/js/three.module.mjs"}}</script>, so in my examples here there are certain attributes that need to be set. right now there are work arounds such as using custom component or the head content. but I do see this as a feature that needs to be added.

Okay, I see what you’re saying now. I don’t know if this warrants an actual feature addition to the program, but I guess see what the devs think.

I need this option too, as I require a id on the link in the head of a color-switcher dark/light theme I imported. We are not currently allowed to put attributes in the head. I use javascript to target the stylesheet id in the head for switching and I have to use a id because it could be in one or the other state. (unless someone knows a trick to target the last stylesheet in the head)

This is what I need: (set on a stylesheet in the css folder)

<link id="style-switch" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/style.css">

and this is what I have to use to design with because pasting in the settings Head Content does not add the style until its exported or published. So I have to do this

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="/style.css">
<link id="style-switch" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/style.css">

Now everytime I have to export or publish I have to disable the first stylesheet active in Bootstrap Studio. (for all pages) :upside_down_face:

Also as a side note is there anyway to automagically indent links added in settings (head before and after) so they dont look so terrible (out of place) in the head ?

My solution was to use this instead of a id and change my all the color related option stylesheets to start with /style

var style = document.querySelector("link[href^='/style']");

not ideal though…and doesnt work with Publish because everything is minified in the head styles and combined.

I’ve been doing light/dark mode since Bootstrap 4 like this.
It works in BSS, and when previewing, exporting or publishing the design
Have a look here

also scroll animation without aos

Hey! Would you be able to send me the BSDesign File for this?
I’ve been looking everywhere on Google for tutorials on how to get Dark / Light mode working on Bootstrap and haven’t been able to find a reliable source. I understand Bootstrap 5.3 is adding Color Modes, which I’m exited to see BSS implement it, but for now seeing your example is exactly what I’m after.

Despite the workaround this feature is still a must have…

Yes this is still a requested feature for me too. I did finally realize if one is going to use Bootstrap Studio Publish option where every css file gets minified and bundled at the root level is to simply create a css sub folder and put my excluded css stylesheet in it. The bundler cannot add that file because of the path difference now. Then I updated my javasrcipt to find the stylesheet by matching part of the name in order to do the switching. I also had to make sure to target the sheetname.min.css version as it is also minified in the sub folder using Publish.
