Bugs and feature requests

Have a bug or a feature request? Please first search for existing and closed issues. If your problem or idea is not addressed yet, please open a new issue.

The new issue should contain both a summary of the issue and the browser/OS environment in which it occurs and a link to the playground you prefer with the reduced test case. If suitable, include the steps required to reproduce the bug.

Please do not use the issue tracker for personal support requests: Stack Overflow is a better place to get help.

Known issues

  • Make sure .form-control is not applied to the input. Bootstrap does not support that, refer to Checkboxes and radios
