You can't. First of all, there is no Opencart 3.3.2! Secondly, you'd have to change loads of template files, and various 3rd party extensions, not worth the trouble.

Master branch on Github.

The most generated errors being found on Opencart forum originates from contributed programming. The increased post counters are caused by redundancies of the same solutions that were already provided prior.

I meant 3.0.3.2 and corrected it.
And thanks, that's what I was wondering.... Wasn't sure if it was say as easy as updating to a newer version of jQuery by editing the header.twig file

By looking at the latest commit changes on Github by Daniel regarding Bootstrap and JS files, you may notice larger involvement to achieve the objective in order to fully upgrade those versions since it also contains CSS changes.

Bootstrap is front-end code so won't pose any security risk however old it is.

It's not that it's front end code. It's just that OpenCart doesn't seem to use the vulnerable parts in a way that can be exploited. As for extensions, who knows.

Just found this by plain accident: :D
Bootstrap 4 Basic Theme
https://playground.opencartforge.com/u/ ... /index.php
https://playground.opencartforge.com/u/ ... /index.php
This site says above theme still uses bootstrap 3.3.5. Chick on the security score of F to find out

https://www.webpagetest.org/result/2011 ... 3e81efd58/

but if anyone else is saying I shouldn't worry about bootstrap security I'm ok with not upgrading it

You might be able to update to 3.4.1 without much issue - https://getbootstrap.com/docs/3.4/

There were XSS issues patched back in 2019, not sure if it affects OC in anyway. - https://blog.getbootstrap.com/2019/02/1 ... and-3-4-1/
