Link is an adaptation of the “Link” theme by for WordPress. It is a modern, fully responsive, “flat” style theme with a nice color palette, big full-width images, and full-width colored sections. The navigation is a toggle menu fixed to the top of the page. When clicked, the menu flies in from the right. It also lets you add your social media links.

The Link theme is a child theme for Flat Bootstrap.

It automatically adapts for desktops, tablets, and phones. It is based on the standard WordPress starter theme (_S) and the Twitter Bootstrap CSS framework. The theme was inspired by the HTML/CSS themes from and color schemes from’s flat UI.

Features include a fixed toggle menu, multiple columns (grid), buttons, icons, labels, badges, tabbed content areas, collapsible content areas, progress bars, alert boxes, carousels (sliders) and much, much more.

This theme is designed to have a “static” home page and so when previewing the theme and when you first install it, a sample page is displayed. The theme is perfect for showcasing products or photos with a midnight blue page header.

    You can use the standard WordPress Import feature and load the /samples/samples.xml file. You can use this sample to build your home page (or any other page on your site).

    Can’t complete the installation. WordPress’ theme manager says: “The parent theme is missing. Please install the “flat-bootstrap” parent theme.”
    What do I need to do to install this theme? Thanks in advance.

    1. Tim Nicholson Avatar

      There should be an option to install the parent theme, flat bootstrap, from there. Worst case, search for the flat bootstrap theme and install that as normal from the WordPress theme directory.

        Hello, thanks for the quick answer.
        There’s no option available from Wp, in fact it just installs leaving it marked as failed.
        I searched flat bootstrap theme from the Wp theme’s installation manager, but it shows about 50 different. ???
        Is there a link that I can follow exactly to the flat bootstrap theme that’s needed? If not, perhaps a more accurate name to narrow down the search?
        Thank you very much. Best regards.

    Hello Tim,
    I’m starting to use your theme (link), and I’m very happy with.
    Just one (beginner) question:
    How can I remove the comment area?
    Thanks in advance!

    1. Marie Stadelmann Avatar

      I found the solution by my self…

    I was wondering why i do not have a theme options tab. I have made changes to the php via dreamweaver, but can’t get any further with my changes.

    1. Tim Nicholson Avatar

      There are theme options under Appearance -> Customize. You can change thinks like site title and tagline, background color, header image, background image, etc. I don’t understand what that has to do with you modifying the PHP directly, though.

    I love this theme and its flexibility. However, could you help me add my custom logo where the header title is? Thank you!

    1. Tim Nicholson Avatar

      To add a custom logo, its probably easiest to edit the header.php file. Look for the navbar-brand section and replace the site name with an img tag. You could probably do this with CSS instead, but it would be harder to do.

    Absolutely awesome theme. But I cannot for the life of me figure out how to make my new posts go anywhere but the home page. Ideally I’d like them to post to the home page and another page of my choosing. Is that possible? Is there a plugin I need? Thanks!

    1. Tim Nicholson Avatar

      In WordPress, when you set the home page to be “static”, it makes you also select a second page to be used as your normal blog page. So I would create one page called “home” and another called “blog” or “news”. Point WordPress to those two pages.

    How can I change the social links and address info on the bottom of the page in the green boxes?
    Thank you and I love the theme.

    1. Tim Nicholson Avatar

      You’ll have to copy the HTML from the sample, put it into a text widget and you can modify the icons and links.

      1. Jason Hines Avatar

        How do you copy the HTML from the sample? The sample on this page is just an image.

        1. Tim Nicholson Avatar

          You can use the built-in WordPress “Import” function to create the sample page. Just import the /samples/samples.xml file. That will build the page content for you. Also, before you add any of your own widgets to the theme, sample widgets will display. In your browser, choose “View Source” and copy and paste the actual HTML to put into your own text widget(s).

    Hi. I am trying desperately to figure out how you’ve created that grid in your “Sample Usage”… Do you have any links that would help me out? I’d specifically like to craft an area like that with tweets from different timelines, video stills linking to YouTube videos, etc.

    1. Tim Nicholson Avatar

      Hi, you can use the Gallery feature in the WordPress Jetpack plugin to create that grid of photos.
