    Great plugin!
    Just trying things out with bootstrap classes in our theme (a clone of More).
    Are we able to *combine* bootstrap classes with this? What I want to be able to do is to provide an alert along with a cross to close the alert i.e. using type="button", class="close" data-dismiss="alert" as seen here

    Hi Nick,

    well, the atto_styles plugin is able to add 2 or more classes if you ask it to do so. Just add the classes, separates by spaces, to the "classes" attribute of the configuration on /admin/settings.php?section=atto_styles_settings.

    The question if combining two bootstrap classes will produce a decent result is another thing. Atto_styles will just assist you in adding these classes to your text, but you have to test yourself if the two classes in combination will produce the result you want. If you can't produce the result you want just with bootstrap classes, you will have to create a custom style with CSS and add the CSS to your theme. Then again, atto_style will assist you to apply this custom CSS style / class to your text.

    I hope this helps...

    A great feature for this plugin would be to expand the "Type" feature to include other HTML tag types such as h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, and paragraph.

    Hi Benjamin,

    well, these tag types are already covered by the core plugin atto_title. The goal of atto_styles is to be able to define own CSS classes and assign them to text blocks or inline text.

    From a end users' perspective, you may be right. End users just want to style their text and don't want to think about implementation or HTML code details. However, including these tags would basically mean to duplicate code. I will think about it, but I can't promise anything yet.

    Hi, we are upgrading from 3.5 to 3.9 and would like to continue use of this plugin. Will it work on 3.9 or are there plans to release a version for 3.9?

    "" says "This plugin requires Moodle 3.9+"

    "" says the latest version is "v3.8-r2 (2020100800)"

    @Ricardo, yes it is confusing. I presume the discrepancy is because the entry on has not been updated yet.
