Bootstrap 5, layouts for ContentBlocks

The default layout set in ContentBlocks is still for Bootstrap 3. Here’s a quick set of layouts for Bootstrap 5 in 3 styles:

  • full width with gutters (full width, 1 column, 2 columns, hero)
  • full width without gutters (full width, 1 column, 2 columns, hero)
  • grid container without gutters (1 column, 2 columns, hero)

Last time I looked, the foundation layouts were also quite old … but no rush (at least not for me).

I found that all the grid-frameworks are quite obsolete nowadays with CSS-grids (or flexbox, or even tailwind) so it’s easier, leaner and faster to setup layouts yourself.
