Twitter Bootstrap 3 WordPress Starter Theme for Developers

smoothieThis was the smoothest theme update from end to end that I’ve ever had. We had no hiccups in review and no major problems.* Maybe I’ll get the hang of this after all.

Down to business.

Twitter Bootstrap was updated to v3.1.1 on February 13th and 3.1 on the 30th of January so I wanted to make sure we got all the latest and greatest included in our theme here. The js, LESS, and default bootstrap.css files were all updated. There were also some typos in my translation strings on a couple files. Thank you to WP user Dyskette for taking the time to point it out.

I’ve also updated the child theme with the updated LESS files.

What’s next?

Bootstrap 3.1 brought us the SASS port so I’m trying to figure out the best way to incorporate that into what we are trying to do here. I’m not sure if I should just make an “add-on” download type of thing or actually include it with the theme itself. Right now the thinking is that including both the SASS and the LESS is going to create too much bloat. In the end I might create an entirely new theme that uses the SASS way. I haven’t decided yet but I feel it is important to make this available.

The Bootstrap Component Plugin

I’ve also been kicking around the idea of creating a companion plugin that is full of shortcodes and template tags to help people use the Bootstrap javascript and css components easier within their content. I haven’t started anything but it has been on mind for a long while.

If you have translation files I want them!

I’d like to start compiling a list of translation resources. So if  you have taken the time to translate the theme please send them to me danny (at) so that we can help the rest of the world and make them available for download.

Child Theme Gallery

I’ve used this theme in a few different production projects now so I’d like to create a “child theme” gallery. I’d like to show people what is possible using DevDmBootstrap3 as a starting point for projects. If you have a project you have made that I could showcase please let me know danny (at)

It is also my birthday!

* So far…

    I noticed that running this site through the W3C validator generates a substantial amount of errors… Does this apply to this site only, or does it have to do with the theme itself, and if so, are you planning to fix it?

      Thanks for the feedback Andreas.

      Yea it looks like there are some issues there that need to be addressed. Looks like a find and replace went rogue somewhere along the line. Doesn’t look like it will be a huge issue but I’ll add it to my list to take care of.

    I’m really looking forward to use sass (and compass) with your bootstrap theme. Thanks for your work!
