Topic: Using MDBootstrap alongside regular Bootstrap

ljacobsen free asked 5 years ago

I'm using MDBootstrap in a Visual Studio ASP.NET MVC project. Visual Studio automatically includes the regular (Twitter) Bootstrap library in web projects.Should I delete Twitter Bootstrap and use only MDBootstrap? Or, is it advised to use both libraries?

Currently, MDB doesn't support ASP.NET

Did you read my question? I wasn't asking for ASP.NET support. I was asking if it is a good practice to use MDBootstrap alongside vanilla bootstrap.

Sorry for the misunderstanding

You shouldn't delete regular Bootstrap. Bootstrap is required by MDB so it won't work without Bootstrap

Just what I needed to know. Thanks!

Hi I have no issues with running them concurrently. I have attached my code in the _layout.cshtml


<linkrel="stylesheet"href="~/lib/bootstrap/dist/css/bootstrap.min.css" />
<linkrel="stylesheet"href="~/lib/mdb/css/mdb.min.css" />
<linkrel="stylesheet"href="~/css/site.css" />

Thanks Alberto for understanding and replying to my question. I am experiencing an issue with select elements when using MDBootstrap and Bootstrap concurrently. That's why I asked if it is a recommended practice.
