I have some issues with the template together with a component that I use. The component developer has written this:

The default bootstrap code has been customized by your Joomla template in ....../templates/luxon/css/custom.css and bootstrap.css file on your site. This is causing issues in your directory menu. The customization is complex and may affect other areas of your site if we make any changes. So kindly ask your template provider to make the changes to get the menu working. We are following the standard dropdown menu code from bootstrap in our directory.

Looking forward to hearing your comments.

Any third party extension should not be relying on the template for any part of its css, they should be providing their own css. We include bootstrap to stylize the default Joomla features only. Default bootstrap css is not intended to be used "out of the box", it is a starting point for developers, which is meant to be customized to the needs of the project. In short, if the developer is relying on the template to provide css for their extension that is the problem, all extensions are to include their own styling and not rely on a template in any way; this is something they will need to correct.
