I am trying to simply add code to the visual editor in Toolset Layouts.

In this case, a bootstrap dropdown button using the code from Bootstrap directly.

"<!-- Single button -->
<div class="btn-group">
<button type="button" class="btn btn-default dropdown-toggle" data-toggle="dropdown" aria-haspopup="true" aria-expanded="false">
Action <span class="caret"></span>
<ul class="dropdown-menu">

  • Action
  • Another action
  • Something else here
  • <li role="separator" class="divider">

  • Separated link
  • </div>"

    This does not work.

    I'm using the WPtwentysixteen theme.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Hi COOP,

    Thank you for contacting our support forum.

    Since you theme does not include bootstrap as a part of its css you will need to tell Layouts to include bootstrap.

    To do this go to Toolset -> Settings -> General and scroll to "Bootstrap Layouts"

    Then select the bootstrap 3 option.

    Please let me know if this helps.



    Hi Shane,

    Thanks for your response. I've changed the settings as you instructed.

    It's showing something......but not rendering how it should.

    Please see the image attached.

    Is there a way for you to link me to this page on the frontend ?



    Thanks for your response.

    There no way to link you into the frontend.

    Its a secure internal build running on an internal network.

    Does not connect to the internet.

    Saying that now, has got me thinking.

    Is Toolset linking to bootstrap library externally, as in via an internet url?

    Or has bootstrap been written into the Toolset css?

    Hi Coop,

    The bootstrap css is loaded is included with the plugin.



    Hi Shane,

    I've just stuck some css into my child theme.

    So using that to create what I need. Works ok.

    Thanks for your help.
