WordPress Twitter Bootstrap CSS Plugin Home

The WordPress Twitter Bootstrap plugin lets you harness the power of Twitter Bootstrap from within your WordPress site.

No more:

  • manually editing your WordPress theme
  • downloading the Twitter Bootstrap libraries each time they’re updated
  • manually writing HTML to make use of Bootstrap components.

What great benefits come with the WordPress Twitter Bootstrap plugin?

  • Keep your site automatically up-to-date – we release a new updates as soon as new versions of the libraries are released.
  • Customize and pre-compile your design – we’ve integrated a LESS Compiler so you can customize your Bootstrap design right from within your WordPress site!
  • Make your site look Twitter-Bootstrap-Awesome! With the WordPress shortcodes we’ve provided, you can add Bootstrap components directly from within your Posts, Pages, and sidebar widgets
  • Speed up your site for visitors – this plugin lets you deliver both the Twitter Bootstrap and JQuery Javascript libraries using Cloudflare’s high-speed CDNJS service.
  • Optimize for how YOU need it – Many WordPress plugins don’t let you choose exactly how to use their components. With our plugins, you can always select features you want enabled, when you want them. E.g. You can disabled shortcodes, minify library files, add Responsive CSS if you want, include Bootstrap Javascript if you want etc.
  • Optional CSS libraries – Not only can you use Twitter Bootstrap, you can use Normalize CSS, Yahoo! Reset, and, even include a CSS file of YOUR choosing!

What features does the WordPress Twitter Bootstrap plugin have?

As of version 2.0.3 of the plugin, the following feature list represents the core functionality available.

You have the option to:

  1. include the Twitter Bootstrap CSS library as the absolute first CSS link on any WordPress site.
  2. include the Twitter Bootstrap Responsive CSS library.
  3. include the complete Twitter Bootstrap Javascript library
  4. “roll your own”. You can customize the Twitter Bootstrap for your site using our LESS compiler functionality (thanks to lesscphp for the compiler itself)
  5. include your own custom or reset CSS file by providing a URL – useful if you want to create your own base/reset CSS library for all your sites.
  6. use WordPress shortcodes that we created for the plugin, allowing you to quickly take advantage of Twitter Bootstrap CSS components.
  7. use Twitter Bootstrap CSS in the WordPress Admin interface. Great for plugin and theme developers!
  8. include Yahoo! Reset CSS (YUI 2) or YUI v3, or Normalize CSS (instead of Twitter Bootstrap)

Other miscellaneous options include:

  • link the Javascript libraries in the <HEAD> section if required – defaults to the end of the <BODY> section.
  • use minified (default) or normal CSS libraries.
  • delete all plugin settings once the plugin has been deactivated. The default setting is to retain all plugin options.
  • include Google prettify libraries for displaying code. This doesn’t quite work because of certain WordPress “features” but fixing it (so-far) falls outside of the scope of the plugin.

What problem does WordPress Twitter Bootstrap Plugin solve?

The problem posed was how we could automatically and quickly include the latest Twitter Bootstrap library on all of our managed WordPress websites.

We didn’t want to edit each of our WordPress themes directly to achieve this, and furthermore, some themes actually prevented us from doing so altogether.

A plugin was required that could include Twitter Bootstrap CSS library for all WordPress themes – this is the problem the WordPress Twitter Bootstrap CSS plugin solved.
