    This is the best bootstrap derived theme that I’ve tested. Thanks Rachel

    Hi,

    This theme looks a great starter theme for my responsive project but I have noticed that you have not used container-fluid etc… Will these newer features from Bootstrap 2.0 be included in an upcoming development?

    Thanks

      Huw,

      I am not sure if I will include that one. It would be pretty easy to do since the needed css styles are already included, you could just use the html file from the docs -> examples folder and add the needed php functions.

    Great work Rachel!
    I presume creating a child theme based on your BootstrapWP is done how the codex lays it out. Any thoughts on this?

      RJ,

      Honestly, I am not a “child-theming” developer so I am not 100% sure. However, from what I do understand from others that have attempted this you would need to add a functions.php with a line to enqueue your style.css from the stylesheet directory.

    Hey, Rachel, does your theme have shortcode support — or would you like to implement some — to make it easier for information architects to structure & display a Web site’s content?

    Also, where are you at on:
    - custom backgrounds,
    - colour picker,
    - (Google) fonts implementation?

    Cheers x
