Theme options lost


Sometimes my file looses contact to the my theme-file and this happens.

Tthe THEME pane displays none of my modifications to the base colors / typography. In fact all the entries in the pane are empty. BUT the css modifications are still applied to the HTML.

I can either choose to reconnect to the default Pingendo theme giving me back all the options but loosing all my new css styles. Or I can continue using my new theme but without the ability to make site wide modifications through the THEME pane.

Has anyone got a suggestions as to why this happens? Am I not using Pingendo the right way?


Hallo Jakob. There are some known issue that will be fixed in the upcoming update. Thank you for your patience.


We just updated the app to work with Bootstrap 4 beta. Let us know if it works correctly now. Thanks


I am still having difficulties. I want to combine the new style sheet with my old so that I keep all my alterations
But when I process my SCSS the compiler states:

File to import not found or unreadable: bootstrap-4.0.0-beta.1
968: @import ‘bootstrap-4.0.0-beta.1’;

The result is that all my custom code is processed but all my alterations to variables such as bg-primary and such is omitted.

Can you explain to me how the Bootstrap stylesheet is imported? Because it is not not in my own directory, is it? I thought that it was imported from an external directory.
Here is my html header:

  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
  <script src="js/jquery-3.2.1.js" type="application/javascript"></script>
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="" type="text/css">
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="" type="text/css">

////this is my local stylesheet originally from Pingendo ////
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="out/index4.css">


  <script src=""></script>
  <script src=""></script>


If I include

<link rel="stylesheet" href="" type="text/css"> </head>

in the header then a number of alterations are ignored and Pingendo/Bootstraps own setting is used instead. For examples the color palette and typography.

It simply ignores all the changes I have made to a number of variables.


Hallo. It seems you are working with Bootstrap 3.3.7.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="" type="text/css">

But, are you using Pingendo for Boostrap 4 or the older one for Bootstrap 3 ?


I started out a month ago I think on this project using Pingendo 4. I have previously used Bootstrap 3.

When did the change occur?
I see that Bootstrap 4 no longer support classes like hidden-md-up meaning I have to change a lot of mark up.

My main challenge though is to get the modifications to a number of variable to kick in such as the color palette.


This is how it should look like:

And this is how it looked now


I know the latter is missing index4.css but I don’t want to overwrite the css on the server.

index4.css Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 404 (Not Found)

On my local directory I cannot get the SCSS to compile a stylesheet with the modifications to the variables.


Hallo, if you want to use Bootstrap 3 you should use the old pingendo for Bootstrap 3. (here the download link

Otherwise, if you want to use the new Bootstrap 4 with the new Pingendo Bootstrap 4, you – unfortunately – need to manually convert your old rules and markup.


Bootstrap is not bad but original wordpress is better to use. It is more comfortable and you don’t need to mess around with settings to solve the smallest problem in your site. For example, I want to change the main theme of my website. With bootstrap I would have to re-configure all settings and customize my site from the begining. But with wordpress I just need to decide what wordpress template I will use, choose it on or and transfer all date to my new site


Points of view… hard to say what is better without a context…
