    Declare css variables gives error


    I've declared variables in my stylesheet but when looking at my css in Umbraco I get a warning saying my css rule is empty and my variables gives an error saying it expects a closing brace }.

    How is this?

    enter image description here

    Hi Anders

    I believe Umbraco CSS editor doesn't support CSS variables. It would be nice to support, not sure in which release it will be implemented.

    Thanks, Alex

    Is this still the case?

    I am trying out Umbraco and wanting to import a bootstrap based theme, which of course uses css variables.

    The errors OP mentioned are appearing and I really don't feel like going manually back and forth modifying a css file which exists out of more than 10k lines of code...

    Hi Niko,

    I don't think it has been changed recently, but mind you: It's only when viewing the CSS in the Backoffice you'll see them - and it's (to my knowledge) only a display issue - the CSS can be edited and saved all fine.

    The CSS will work fine when referenced from the HTML as usual.
