Help with Start Bootstrap

About Bootstrap

Bootstrap is a "sleek, intuitive, and powerful mobile first front-end framework for faster and easier web development." Before using any of Start Bootstrap's templates, it is recommended that you take a look at the offical Bootstrap website to understand the framework's capabilities and usage.

Using the Templates

The templates featured on Start Bootstrap are built using the Bootstrap 3 framework. In order to get the most out of these free templates, we recommend that you build an in-depth understanding of the Bootstrap framework itself. The templates featured on Start Bootstrap can be great learning tools and are a great place to start when building a website. To unlock their full potential, the templates and themes will require some additional personalized customization.

To access the templates you can either download the .zip file for a template located on the template's preview page, you can view the live preview and copy the HTML/CSS source code directly, or you find the templates on our GitHub repository.

Copyright and License
