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.

Font Awesome included

Stop searching for the right icons. BootStart comes ready withย 361 font icons brought to you by Font Awesome. In their own words, Font Awesome gives you scalable vector icons that can instantly be customized โ€” size, color, drop shadow, and anything that can be done with the power of CSS.

Liquid or Fixed layout

Liquid or Fixed? Don’t pick a starter theme based on one or the other. Instead, with BootStart you can select your preference with one-click from the theme options panel.


Single post page templates

4 single post page layouts make boring blogs come alive again.

6 Page Templates

Every page template is responsive and ready to use.

4 category templates

Unlike most themes, this framework comes equipped with 4 different category templates.

And more

  • Pricing template – Create a pricing table easily and style it as you wish.
  • Shortcodes – We kept it simple so you can style basic elements without having to wrestle tons of code.
  • Theme Control Panel: ย See a static live demo of theme control panel or test it at playground.

Whether you need a new blog, or have a complex project in mind, BootStart is the perfect theme for rapid development. Use it as a foundation and adapt it to your design, or use as-is. Get started now with this minimalistic and responsive theme built on Twitter Bootstrap.

    Big joke as lot of other starter themes are available for free, this one costs much.

    • Mehmet Ozek   February 20, 2014 at 8:14 AM

      Dear Jaggy,

      The difference between free and paid themes are the premium support that you get after sale.

  9. FreeBootstrap   March 6, 2014 at 5:36 AM

    Thanks for the framework, can you share how to use modal in bootstrap?

    • Mehmet Ozek   March 10, 2014 at 3:12 PM
