DevDmBootstrap3

Twitter Bootstrap 3 WordPress Starter Theme for Developers

In migrating my blog to DevDmBoostrap3 I created a new child theme to show what can be done with DevDmBootstrap3 I’m calling it ‘cleanblog’ and I’m making it available for others to use in their projects.

A new version of Bootstrap (3.2.0) came out last month on June 26th. You can read about it on the Bootstrap Blog here.

I’m glad there was a new release as DevDmBootstrap3 was starting to look like a dead project on the theme directory. This isn’t true as we are still seeing downloads all the time. I’m fielding new emails every week with people asking questions and contributing to making things better.  So I’m happy that we are now able to push out an update to make our “Lasted Updated” date a little more current.

Most DevDmBootstrap3 theme users will have this change go unnoticed. The JavaScript and CSS bugs fixes/changes will just be there. If you find yourself having trouble be sure to review the Bootstrap documentation which has grown and gotten better. Your child theme might need some tweaks to get it fixed. You can always email me (danny@devdm.com) and I’ll try to help.

I also added one conditional function check for “devdmbootstrap3_wp_title” inside the functions.php file.

Thanks to user chicchera for pointing this out to me. We are now checking to see if the “devdmbootstrap3_wp_title” function exists before we use it. This enables people to overwrite it easily. I debated adding conditionals for the devdmbootstrap3_theme_js and devdmbootstrap3_theme_stylesheets functions but the wp_dequeue and wp_enqueue systems are in place for that.

I’ve also gone through the entire site here updating screen shots, code and added more information where I could.

We also have a new translation available!

Child Theme Update

The child theme has been updated to include the new LESS file structure with the 3.2.0 update. I’ve also included the fonts directory with the child theme. The fonts were breaking for some users who were compiling the LESS files and using wp_dequeue_style to remove the parent themes’ CSS. We were also double including the parent theme’s css file with an @include so that has been removed.

10000downloadsI haven’t had to make any posts for a while as DevDmBootstrap3 is trucking right along and there hasn’t been any Bootstrap updates. We have our small group of developers using the theme regularly and that is good enough for me.

We did finally hit 10,000 downloads on the Themes Directory so that is a big milestone.  Many themes do this in their first week but because we are a niche group I’m okay with taking a few months shy of a year to do so.

A big thank you to everyone who emails me or asks questions. Many times you guys try to use the Theme in a way I had never thought of and it just helps the next person who asks me when we figure it out.

Translation Files

I’ve taken great care to make sure that DevDmBootstrap3 is friendly to all of our international users. A couple of you have sent me translation files so I’d like to make those available for everyone on the Translation Files area of the website.
