  1. Sorry I haven’t watched all the videos yet but just wondering how you implement the menu drop down?

  2. I am looking for an WordPress, Bootstrap and an ecommerce plugin suggestion such as Woocommerce tutorial. Any suggestions?

  3. Just share with people to use Desktop Server, which will handle the install of wamp, the install of the wp site, and changing the urls from local to live automagically.  With a click, you upload developed site to production theatre.   Huge time-saver.

  4. Could a person use your tutorial — since Blankslate hasn’t been updated since 2013 and we are about to enter 2015 — to use “Bones” instead of Blankslate?

  6. Nice video thanks for sharing. Even, Bootstrap 3 based WordPress themes can also be designed by using a designing software template-toaster, Webo etc.. Such software is the useful resource for creating a bootstrap based themes.

  7. I am looking for a partner wordpress theme developer who can develop wp themes from scratch and who is interested in selling them

  8. Nice tutorial! Is it possible to use the Woocommerce plugin with my own Bootstrap template?

  9. If we already have complete custom made template and want to use wordpress as CMS, how can we integrate wordpress to our template.

  10. Nice idea. I never thought of doing a bootstrap based wordpress theme. As a new web-dev, it’s so easy to use wordpress to quickly provide solutions for the requests I’m starting to get from clients. I just have to start learning how to customise themes, I guess. I should also start to learn how to make my own from scratch. I hope this series will be a good start.

  11. When i click the download HTML url it says that Server not found. please help
