    As the error messages indicate that there 2 files are importing other LESS files which use variables: brandweer and d42e12

    Kindly check the import files in these 2 files where you use these 2 variables and remove it also.

    Hello Saguaros,

    I’ve looked at your suggestion, but didn’t find what was wrong…

    What I find strange is:

    • first I changed the color of 2 buttons, compiled less files and checked my site: the colors had been changed. Then I change the rest of the buttons, and boooom: the site goes down.
    • I changed the colors according to your instructions of july 2017: in those instructions I have to make changes to the variables.less – navbar.less – magazine. less – megamneu.less files. But I didn’t go into the two files that are reporting problems now (template.less and bootstrap.less)

    Here’s my code for the bootstrap.less file:

    // Core variables and mixins
    //@import "variables.less"; //T3 Note: Already in T3 vars.less
    //@import "mixins.less"; //T3 Note: Already in T3 vars.less
    @import "vars.less"; // Modify this for custom colors, font-sizes, etc

    // Reset
    @import "../../../plugins/system/t3/base-bs3/bootstrap/less/normalize.less";
    @import "../../../plugins/system/t3/base-bs3/bootstrap/less/print.less";

    // Core CSS

    @import "magazine.less";

    And this is the code for the template.less file:

    I dont’ see any references to the variables "@brandweer" or "@d42e12" in this code???

    Any other thoughts?

    Hi Werner,

    http://www.acodlrb.be/ your site is working now, is that solved?

    Hi Saguaros,

    Yes, the site is back up.

    I reversed all the steps I did previously and that brought the site back online.
    I’ll have another go at changing the colors of the menu-items, but one by one now so I can check where it goes wrong (if it goes wrong).

    Glad to hear that you figured it out, let me know if you need any further help.
