Bootville Theme Feature List

Each year I try to create a child theme based off of the default WordPress themes. The last two years I didn’t bother (twenty thirteen and twenty fourteen) because those themes were just not very user friendly when it came to editing them. I will be releasing a free Twenty Fifteen child theme with several options in the very near future as soon as I have a chance to check my beta code with the final release.

I have mentioned a few times I have been working on my own theme called Bootville, and wanted to share my progress with you and would love to hear any opinions or suggestions you might have for it. It’s a clean responsive theme with many useful features based on _Underscores Starter Theme by Automattic and Twitter Bootstrap Framework. Font Awesome, IsoTope and Redux Framework were also used in its creation.

      Hi Jen. Most of the color schemes are by Bootswatch but I’ll also be adding a few of my own. I hope to have it released before the end of January. You’re right about Bootstrap, it’s perfect for mobile sites and constantly being updated. Thanks for the comment!

    Cant wait to see your new theme. Sounds great. I have always loved working with boootstrap. Your twenty twelve tuts were so useful and i used them on dozens of client sites. It would be great to see some more of your tuts concerning bootstrap and wp.

    thanks for all your great work and useful info Zeak. Its been extremely valuable to me on my career.

      This theme has been put on hold for a few weeks as I’m undecided about a few options. I do plan on creating a few tutorials on using BootStrap with a starter theme in the near future which should create a theme similar to the one used on this site.
