I have been working on a WordPress (WP) Theme which uses the new Bootstrap 4 framework. I have found that many WP themes which are available tend to be bloated with features and functionality which is un-necessary – this leads to a lot of time spent removing these features, so that the website management is uncluttered.

Too many features do also slow a website down, which is a key factor in Google’s page ranking, so this starter theme is built with minimal plugins and makes use of asynchronous script loading.

The theme up using the minimum of attributes:

  • Bootstrap4 responsive framework
  • Font Awesome support
  • Responsive layered slider
  • Retina ready
  • Triple Menu support (top, main and base)
  • WooCommerce support
  • Built-in Social Media support
  • Standard and sticky headers
  • One-Page scrolling page feature
  • + the usual page, post and blog activities

This theme is already being used as a basis for several new websites under construction at the moment – and is proving very adaptable for customised builds. I have set up a demo where the theme will be evolving
