Another starter theme. Yes, another WordPress starter theme, based on another starter theme, oh yeah!!! It’s called
_bootstraps = bootstrap + _s.
You ask, why? Because I’ve built countless times the same thing when creating a theme. I don’t want to do this anymore. Creating the theme or download _s, make it right for bootstrap, fix the codes at
functions.php as I want to be simple and object oriented, an options panel, all the repeating tasks needs to end.
What it offers?
Nothing special that much:
- Based on _s
- Based on bootstrap
- A simple theme options panel, based on my Settings API class
- Two column (content – span8, sidebar – span4)
- One navigation menu. Yes, it’s styled, you don’t have to write css for this fracking menubar again.
- LESS CSS
- Font Awesome
- Responsiveness by default

Your Plugin WP User Frontend causing site very very slow, I checked it by enable or disable plugin, im using super cache, I was using this plugin very smoothly but after wordpress updating WP User Frontend causing site very very slow.
How can we solve this issue.
Is WP User Frontend relevant to this post? I don’t know, everyone seems to ask about plugin support in any post, that’s weird. Please open a support thread about this issue on support form on wordpress.org. I don’t have a clue what might be causing problems.
nice work, thanks.
just wanted to do the same as i found yours. forked it now and will play with it.
could you go thru the steps in combining these 2 best of best kick starters so I can do the same at any given time with the latest and greatest as these 2 roll out new versions? For example, from your github page ( https://github.com/tareq1988/_bootstraps ), am I getting the 6 mts ago version of the _s and bootstrap? Shouldn’t I be getting the latest and greatest whenever I start out with a parent theme that will be based on _s & bootstrap? Please clarify. I thought – if I know the steps that you go thru when taking -s from its project site and adding/updating boostrap on top it, I’d be on top of them at all times…
nice job, i would add category.php, author.php and tag.php templates though if it were me 😉
I’m also trying to impose Bootstrap, I’ve learned a lot from your theme. Nice work. Thank you very much.
Just one question, I noticed that you haven’t updated it for a long time. Are you still working on this? Or it’s dead?
I wouldn’t call it as dead. But really it’s hard to sync those all the time. May be you can do that too? Would love to have a pull request 🙂
