WYSIWYG Web Builder 18 not working at all.

It turned out all these users had Windows ransomware protection (controlled folder access) enabled which blocked the documents folder (Documents\WYSIWYG Web Builder)
To solve this, add webbuilder.exe to the exception list


Bootstrap 5
All internal widgets have been upgraded to Bootstrap 5. Bootstrap 5 no longer depends on jQuery, this results in faster and lighter pages (if no other scripts on the page use jQuery).
Normally, you do not have to change anything in your project. All HTML and scripts will automatically be updated when you republish the website.

However, if you have manually added code for Bootstrap widgets, then you may need to update that code.
For example, for controlling Carousel slides via events.

Old code (jQuery)

Code: Select all

New code (no jQuery)

Code: Select all

The latest Bootstrap API is documented here:
