Since this theme is for developers, we are hosting it on github. Its available now! See the download section below.

Flat Bootstrap Developer is a child theme for Flat Bootstrap that strips out all the “extras” so your theme is “light” and you can style it up however you want.

The child theme includes a style.css and functions.php to remove most of the theme’s extra features, javascript, and styles. Specifically:

  • style.css does not include theme-specific styles from the parent theme
  • functions.php removes or changes the following theme features
    • Removes the custom bootstrap CSS and replaces it with the core Bootstrap CSS from the CDN
    • Removes our theme-flat.css stylesheet that has the colored sections and extra buttons in it (btn-hollow and btn-transparent)
    • Removes font-awesome.css (but Bootstrap Glyphicons are still there as they are used by the theme itself)
    • Removes jquerymobile.js (small custom version) and our theme.js that triggers swiping in carousels on touch screens
    • Loads only the required include files, which are for template tags, and adding Bootstrap to the theme.
    • Does not load includes for the theme customizer (custom background, header, etc.), Jetpack continuous scrolling, keyboard navigation on attachment image pages, “extras” included in the TwentyXYZ themes, or plugin recommendations.
    • Changes the site credits a bit, just to show how to override any function in the theme, both in the main functions file or in the included files.
