  • I just tried making changes to applications/dashboard/views/entry/signin.php and applications/dashboard/views/entry/signin2.php; the changes do not show up even if I refresh my browser.

    Is there a server-side cache I need to clear out?

    Also, the form I ultimately want to integrate into this uses bootstrap and jquery. Where would I put the needed includes?

    Thanks in advance for any guidance.

    The person helping you with that has to take responsibility when you will not be able to update to the next Vanilla version.
    Please read about custom themes.

    Well, please read about custom themes. There shouldn't be such a problem if you are doing it right.

    Do you know that there is a Bootstrap based theme? Wouldn't it make sense to start with that?
    Do you know that Bootstrap is one of the most heavy-weight frameworks? Using it for one or two simple pages is overkill (resulting in a poor page performance)
    Vanilla already uses jQuery.

    Thanks in advance for any guidance.

    Please search the forum why it is encouraged to not change Vanillas core files and why it is better to stick with CSS changes whenever possible. The Bootstrap theme is very well done and should be a good starting point.
