BootStart – a Bootstrap Theme Framework

The WordPress starter theme built on Twitter BootStrap.

BootStart – a Twitter Bootstrap theme – is an intentionally minimalistic yet feature-rich WordPress theme loaded with dozens of options to customize your site. It’s designed to be used as a starter theme or on a per-project basis. Unlike framework themes that include the entire kitchen sink of bloat, we’ve made BootStart lean and easy to to use.

Responsive Layout

Using responsive design, BootStart seamlessly scales to fit browser windows, tablets, mobile phones (in landscape and portrait). Experiment with its many post and page layouts to see all the possibilities.

BootStart Framework

Call it a framework or a starter theme because it fits right in the middle – a balance between the must-have options and templates, and extensibility. We’re so confident in BootStart as a foundation for projects that we’re using it as a starting point for future Gabfire themes.

Why a Plugin?

There are several reasons why we released the Gabfire Widget Pack plugin. Here are a few:

1) Contribute to the WP Community – Some of our widgets are quite popular, and we received several emails asking for the code. So rather than limit them to only the Gabfire community, we decided to package our most common widgets into a plugin that could be used by the entire WordPress community.

2) Give End-User Control – Our themes are quite robust in features and options. We found that some users took advantage of the various widgets, however some did not. Therefore, in an effort to allow the end user to decide which widgets they wanted on their site, moving the widgets into a plugin made more sense. Now, you can decide which widget to enable or disable on your site, and users can take advantage of them on any theme.

3) Less is More – There are plenty of plugins and widgets available through WordPress. Depending on your needs, some may be relevant and useful, whereas some are just extra bloat on your site. By transferring the widgets into a free plugin, our themes are lighter out-of-the-box.
