Beware: solving this riddle requires being technically fluent in both digital platforms described below (using them both is essential).

Even though Bootstrap doesn't propagate itself as being narrow-minded; when integrated into Drupal, ... it shows its true colors.


... it shows its three colors.

Typo (Again, sorry; I'm starting to use AZERTY, about which you can find out more on Wikipedia. It's ok to feel blue for me, since not many people use this.):

... it shows its tricolor.


Node: a central or connecting point.

A nice screen-grabber might facilitate an explanatory visual answer of minimum 200 pixels wide & 35 pixels high.

  • $\begingroup$ @Agawa001 I added a warning. Solving this riddle requires some technicalities. $\endgroup$ – Vincent Mia Edie Verheyen Apr 18 '15 at 17:04
  • $\begingroup$ The tag #visual didn't seem appropriate, if I'm wrong please re-add it. $\endgroup$ – leoll2 Apr 18 '15 at 18:30
  • $\begingroup$ Is this actually a puzzle, or are you just upset that Bootstrap integration with Drupal is very limited? $\endgroup$ – Ian MacDonald Apr 18 '15 at 18:45
  • $\begingroup$ @ leoll2 It isn't always as it seems; but in this case, it is very focused on the seeming. I re-added the tag visual. @IanMacDonald I have had almost no problems with limitations. You might be on the right track to solve compatibility issues, but not to solve my riddle. Funny comment though! $\endgroup$ – Vincent Mia Edie Verheyen Apr 18 '15 at 18:51

Answer (the French national flag included in Bootstrap on Drupal)

... Since not too many people seemed to be using the Bootstrap-module of Drupal here: ...

The "true colors" / "3 colors" / "tricolor", was trying to refer to a flag with 3 colors; which is also sometimes referred to as a triband. The references to a nationality were also in the "being more narrow-minded" than the "world-wide web".

The hint about a node, as "connecting the dots" of the riddle; referred to the editing of any node in Drupal (± a technical Drupal-term for article); which would have the shown the following composition (which has the minimum dimensions of ± 200 X 30 pixels):

French flag in Drupal's Bootstrap-module

This is exactly the French flag:

Notice also the reference to the Wikipedia page of AZERTY, which is mainly used in French-speaking countries. The country coloured blue (cf. OP) on the main image of that Wikipedia-entry is France:

  • $\begingroup$ Well, this was very very technical. Currently, Puzzling doesn't have enough people to grant a decent amount of users skilled in Bootstrap and Drupal. This means, just few people (if none) could make progress solving this puzzle. $\endgroup$ – leoll2 Apr 20 '15 at 20:14

    $\begingroup$ I would be careful about how you word answers like this in the future. I disagree that true colors / tricolor obviously refers to a flag. $\endgroup$ – Bailey M Apr 20 '15 at 20:18
  • $\begingroup$ I seem to agree that little users here used the Bootstrap-model, which is why I revealed the answer. | @Bailey You make a good point. It seems that even the Wikipedia-entry for Tricolor, lists other items such as animal coats, a river & sport teams; amongst many entries for flags though. But I agree with your adept comment & will fine-tune the answer. $\endgroup$ – Vincent Mia Edie Verheyen Apr 20 '15 at 20:35
  • $\begingroup$ One could call your usage of "tricolor" narrow-minded ... ;) $\endgroup$ – Ian MacDonald Apr 20 '15 at 20:39
  • $\begingroup$ @IanMacDonald Good catch! According to Wikipedia, the Flag of France is known to English speakers as the "Tricolour" (French: "Tricolore"); but the world-wide web is wider indeed then this single use. :) You are correct about my limitations. $\endgroup$ – Vincent Mia Edie Verheyen Apr 20 '15 at 20:55
