Twitter Bootstrap for WordPress


Support The Plugin: Go Ad free

What is Twitter Bootstrap?
It’s a CSS and Javascript framework that helps boost your site design and functionality quickly.

We love Twitter Bootstrap on our WordPress sites at iControlWP.
And we wanted a way to quickly link the latest Bootstrap CSS and Javascript to all pages, regardless of the WordPress Theme.

With this plugin, now you can!

  • Works with any WordPress Theme without ever editing Theme files and NO programming needed.
  • Now fully customizable with built-in LESS Compiler.
  • Handy WordPress [SHORTCODES] to add Twitter Bootstrap elements to your site quickly
  • Add your own custom CSS reset file
  • Option to add JavaScript to the [HEAD] (defaults to end of [BODY] as is good practice)
  • and more..

To get the latest news and support go here: WordPress Twitter Bootstrap CSS Plugin Home to see the release article on our site.

Why use Twitter Bootstrap?
It’s good practice to have a core, underlying CSS definition so that your website appears and acts consistently across all
browsers as far as possible.

Twitter Bootstrap does this extremely well.

From Twitter Bootstrap:
Bootstrap is a toolkit from Twitter designed to kickstart development of webapps and sites.
It includes base CSS and HTML for typography, forms, buttons, tables, grids, navigation, and more

The problem?
Many themes do not allow you to add custom CSS files easily. Even the Thesis Framework! So we take
another approach and inject the CSS as one of the FIRST items in the HTML HEAD section. This way, no
other CSS interferes first so you can be sure these bootstrap file can be used as a foundation/reset CSS.

The CSS is only part of the solution. Twitter Bootstrap also have Javascript libraries
to complement their Bootstrap CSS. These may also be added to your site with the option to
add them to the HEAD of your site – by default they are added to the end of the BODY.

We also wanted the option to alternatively include YUI “reset.css” and “normalize.css”. These both form related roles to bootstrap, but are lighter.

You could look at the difference between the styles as:

  • reset.css – used to strip/remove the differences and reduce browser inconsistencies. It is typically generic and
    will not be any use alone. It is to be treated as a starting point for your styling.
  • normalize.css – aims to make built-in browser styling consistent across browsers and adds basic styles for modern
    expectations of certain elements. E.g. H1-6 will all appear bold.
  • bootstrap.css – is a level above normalize where it adds much more styling but retains consistency across modern
    browsers. It makes site and web application development much faster.

Some References:

Yahoo Reset CSS, YUI 2:

Normalize CSS:


  • Here you select which CSS to use.

  • If you prefer you can specifiy your own custom reset CSS file. You could use this if you wanted to use a Twitter Bootstrap CSS library that you have created yourself (useful until we implement a LESS compiler into the plugin).

  • Assuming you select Twitter Bootstrap CSS, you may now select which Twitter Bootstrap Javascript libraries to include

  • You have the option of including any selected Javascript libraries in the HEAD of your WordPress document. This is not recommended for various performance reason. You can also selected to enable our WordPress Shortcode library.

  • A new feature as of version Plugin/Theme Developers can now include Twitter Bootstrap CSS in the WordPress Admin screen. Don't select this unless you know you need it - no harm if you do, but no point otherwise.

  • As of version, we've included a news feed on the Dashboard. If you don't want it displayed, select this to hide it.


How can I install the plugin?

This plugin should install as any other respository plugin.

  1. Browse to Plugins -> Add Plugin
  2. Search: WordPress Bootstrap CSS
  3. Click Install
  4. Click to Activate.

Alternatively using FTP:

  1. Download the zip file using the download link to the right.
  2. Extract the contents of the file and locate the folder called ‘wordpress-bootstrap-css’ containing the plugin files.
  3. Upload this whole folder to your ‘/wp-content/plugins/’ directory
  4. From the plugins page within WordPress locate the plugin ‘WordPress Bootstrap CSS’ and click Activate

A new menu item will appear on the left-hand side called ‘Twitter Bootstrap’. Click this menu and select
Bootstrap CSS.

Select the CSS file as desired.

How can I remove the ads and marketing links?

Our bread and butter is iControlWP multiple WordPress site management, which costs a few cents a month. Whenever you use iControlWP
to manage your sites and your site is connected to the service, the plugin will automatically remove all marketing / ads from the admin interface.

So by using our services, you get a great service for one, and also support us by contributing and helping with the ongoing development of our plugins.

To understand why it makes sense to financially support free plugin development, please read:

How can I use the WordPress Twitter Bootstrap Shortcodes?

I’ve put a full demo page of all the fully support shortcodes in this plugin:
Complete WordPress Twitter Bootstrap Shortcodes demo page

What are all the parameters for all the shortcodes?

For all the shortcodes simply type help=”y” and preview your post – it will print a box for you showing all parameters, their default values
and an explanation where appropriate.

The WordPress Shortcodes aren’t getting processed properly – why?

You need to enable the shortcodes feature in the options page. This is a performance optimization so that people who don’t need
it don’t have to process it. Also, some require the Bootstrap Javascript library to be loaded so enable that also if you require it.

Why was Twitter (“Legacy”) Bootstrap v1.4.0 support dropped from the plugin in v2.0.3?

Time and resources. The work to maintain it and ensure it’s bug-free was getting too great.

I’ve explained a bit more in this support forum post here.

Can I link more than one CSS?

No. There’s no point in doing that and serves only to add a performance penalty to your page loads.

With version 0.4+, you can now add your own custom reset CSS that will follow the standard reset/Twittter Bootstrap CSS.

What happens if uninstall this plugin after I design a site with it installed?

In all likelihood your site design/layout will change. How much so depends on which CSS you used and how much of
your own customizations you have done.

Why does my site not look any different?

There are severals reasons for this, most likely it is that you or your WordPress Theme has defined all the styles
already in such a manner that the CSS applied with this plugin is overwritten.

CSS is hierarchical. This means that any styles defined that apply to an element that already has
styles applied to it will take precedence over any previous styles.

Is WordPress Twitter Bootstrap CSS compatible with caching plugins?

The only caching plugin that iControlWP recommends, and has decent experience with, is W3
Total Cache.

This plugin will automatically flush your W3TC cache when you save changes on this plugin (assuming you have
the other plugin installed).

Otherwise, consult your caching program’s documentation.

How can I remove the debug HTML comment?

We add a debug HTML comment right before the Bootstrap file(s) are inserted. This helps debug frontend issues with the
plugin. You can get rid of this easily using any sort of minify plugin or using a line of code in your theme functions.php

add_filter( 'icwp_wptb_show_debug_comment', '__return_false' );
Do you make any other plugins?

We also created the Multiple WordPress Site Manager (iControlWP) to make it easier for you manage all your WordPress sites in one place.

Yes, we created Custom Content By Country
plugin that lets you display content to users in specific regions.

Is the CSS “minified”?

Yes, but only in the case of Yahoo! YUI 2/3, and Twitter Bootstrap CSS.

You now have the option to enable minified CSS or not.

My Popover/Tooltip doesn’t seem to work and it’s generating Javascript errors in the console

This is likely due to you not linking to the latest version of JQuery. Twitter Bootstrap requires the latest
version (v1.7.2 at the time of writing). There is now ( plugin v2.0.3.1+ ) an option to replace the
JQuery of your WordPress installation with the latest version served from Google CDN. Try this if you’re
having issues with Popovers etc., or better yet upgrade your WordPress to the latest version.

As of Twitter Bootstrap 3.0.0 and the release of the plugin with this Bootstrap library version, several things have changed which
you should be aware of before you upgrade!

  • The Twitter Bootstrap v3+ library is quite different to previous versions. If your current WordPress theme is heavily customized
    and built around Bootstrap v2+ you should take great care before upgrading. Always have a valid WordPress backup
    before upgrading your sites.
  • Javascript-based Bootstrap components have also changed quite a bit. I’ve attempted to maintain the shortcodes, but they might
    break. If something breaks for your site, please report them in the forums.
  • Upgrade code I kept in previous versions for those that moved from v1 to v2 of the plugin has been completely removed.
  • Future versions of the plugin v3+ will have an in-built automatic upgrade system for minor releases. Much the same as I’ve done
    for the WordPress Simple Firewall.


  • Provide better upgrade support for customized Variable.less files. Currently if you’ve customized your Variables.less file manually
    you’ll need to back it up before you upgrade your Bootstrap plugin.
  • Allow for a free entry LESS section for users to add their own completely custom variables.
