Setting Page Generation Properties to HTML5

September 7, 2012 – 3:10 pm

I’m playing around with bootstrap. Bootstrap makes use of certain HTML elements and CSS properties that require the use of the HTML5 doctype. To set the doctype in your XPages project do the following:

  • Open Package Explorer
  • Open under WebContent -> WEB-IN
  • Navigate to the Page Generation Properties tab
  • Set the value in HTML doctype
  • Save the changes

  2. Hi Ulrich,

    I’m trying to use bootstrap framework in my XPages app. I followed the blog by Henning explaining how to use the bootstrap framework. I ran into a navigation problem where when I click the links on my left page, the new XPage opens in the new window rather than opening on right hand side.

    Do you know where I could be wrong.
