Find out more about the Bootstrap 5 stable version HERE.

Add Custom Code After The Body Tag

Make your Helix Ultimate 2.0 more yours with the new field for injecting custom code after opening the body tag. You can now add custom code immediately after the body tag to enhance your site’s specific parts or individual pages.

Also, if you want to use Google Tag Manager with your Helix-powered site, you can add your Google Tag Manager code immediately after the body tag. There you have it – a clean and efficient way to inject your code after the opening of the body tag.

Some Notable Improvements

You’ll enjoy several bug fixes and performance improvements with the new beta release. Some of the CSS styles went missing for the breadcrumbs in the last release, which has been fixed now. Pagination was not working with Joomla 4 in the last build, which has been made compatible with the update too.
