Under Consideration

Update WHMCS to Bootstrap 4 instead of 3.3.7.

We're excited about some of the new abilities in Bootstrap 4 and are certainly keeping a close eye on the development and adoption of it among our users. A major consideration for us when it comes to making a switch like this however is in ensuring WHMCS remains universally and easily adaptable and integratable into our customers existing websites, and for that reason we believe switching at this time would be premature. We will however be re-reviewing this regularly.

As you no doubt already know, as of 18 Jan 2018 Bootstrap 4 final was released so any hesitation because of alpha/beta status is no longer warranted. Please consider adopting Bootstrap 4 as soon as possible by leaving the six template as is, with only bugfixes, for those who need it and adding something like a "seven" template based on BS4. I'm sure the "community" would pitch in with plenty of patches. Thanks.

It might be fair to look at this closer in a few months. Most themes will now be moving to Bootstrap 4 now that it is marked stable.

It's important to be up to date with those structural components

As suggested previously, it would be nice to have a "Seven" theme - keeping "Six" with BS3 (for backward compatability) and the new "Seven" theme to move things forward. We have recently re-developed our main website in Bootstrap 4 and have had to develop the same theme twice in order to integrate with WHMCS' software.
