MVC Bootstrap Update breaks CSS

Hi.

I recently updated all of the NuGet packages in one of my solutions, and it seemed to break the CSS.

I recreated the project and copied the model, controller and views across to the new project. I then updated the NuGet packages one by one, and when I updated to Bootstrap 4.0.0 (or later) it broke!

When I downgraded to 3.3.7 it all came back again 🙂

Therefore, it is probably outdated code in the MVC template in Visual Studio that causes the new bootstrap to break it.

Hopefully this will help other people having the same issue
