Welcome! Thank you for visiting Start Bootstrap! My name is David Miller, owner and founder of Blackrock Digital, a digital goods company in Orlando, FL. Now that this blog is live, I’d like to take the opportunity to share a little bit about the origins of this resource for Bootstrap.
Back in Bootstrap 2 days, I had a few HTML starter templates that I would use pretty often for my own personal projects at my company. When Bootstrap 3 came around, I decided to share some of my personal Bootstrap templates on my company’s blog after updating them for Bootstrap 3. The response was pretty huge by our standards, which lead me to believe that I had something of value to share with the world. One thing led to another, and Start Bootstrap was born!

I’d like to think that this tool is especially great for the “div challenged” developers out there who are great at code, but need a little more of a head start when it comes to design. The intention of Start Bootstrap is to offer some more HTML starter options that can help you get moving in the right direction.
I hope you enjoy these templates, and I encourage you to share them with the world if you like them! Thank you for viewing our website, and keep an eye out for more templates soon!

Hi Start Bootstrap users!
I just added two new templates to the mix, ‘Small Business’ and 'Half Slider’! Be sure to check them out and use them in your projects! If you want a breakdown of the two templates, read below!
###'Small Business’ Template
##'Small Business’ Template
So this template was inspired by a project that I had done for a client a few years ago. I intentionally left out the slider in favor of a single image for the main visual on the page. I am also making use of the 'Logo Nav’ starter template for the menu bar.
You will probably want to, if anything, increase the font size of the text within the well. It’s a great place for a company tagline and/or phone number, but we kept it small just to cut down on too much customization of the CSS (we can’t do all the work!). We rounded out the edges on the picture with Bootstrap’s handy `img-rounded` selector, but you can change it back if you want. For the logo, we recommend using a logo with a transparent background! Use `navbar-default` instead of `navbar-inverse` if you need a lighter background, or just customize the background color of the navbar completely.
###'Half Slider’ Template
##'Half Slider’ Template
There isn’t too much to say about this template. It’s fulfilling an email request we got for a half-page height slider instead of a full-page height slider as seen in the 'Full Slider’ template. In the custom CSS, you can change the percentage height of `.carousel` to change the height of the slider.
I hope you enjoy these two new templates! If you have an idea for a layout you would like to see added to the mix, please shoot me an email at feedback@startbootstrap.com and I will see if I can bring your idea to life!

Well it’s been over a month since Start Bootstrap was founded, and the initial response has been pretty great. I want to personally thank everyone who has upvoted my posts on Reddit and, of course, all of the people who have visited my site. The word is out that Start Bootstrap is here, and there are definitely some improvements to be made when it comes to the organization and content featured on the site.
As the project has progressed, it has been managed by me adding new templates to the site one by one. Now for only 15 templates, which is where we are at right now, featuring them all stacked up in three columns on the home page works fine, but my plan is to get a lot more templates out there.

The next step is coming, and we’ll be updating you every step of the way. Stay tuned for bigger and better updates from Start Bootstrap in the coming months.
Again, thanks to everyone who has supported this project thus far. Every tweet, star, like, share, or visit is just more motivation for me to keep on going!

As we stated in our last post, we have started rolling out some major structural changes to Start Bootstrap. We now have a templates section with a few different categories, which will allow us to scale up the project a bit better as we start adding more and more templates.
In addition, each template now has its own home, which gives a larger image preview of the template, a live preview link, a download link (a complete .zip file with the template, its custom CSS, and Bootstrap 3 core components), and links to the raw HTML and CSS on GitHub. Each page also featured some design recommendations to help you get started, as well as links to similar templates to the one being viewed.

Finally, you’ll notice a section we’ve added called ‘Full Website Templates.’ This section will feature fully functional, multi-page, pre-packaged website templates that are ready to download and customize. We’ll be adding these in the near future as well!
Stay tuned, we’ll be adding more and more content as time goes on. If you have any special requests for templates you’d like to see featured on Start Bootstrap, send us a message at feedback@startbootstrap.com! Thanks everyone!

I’ve finally gotten around to adding a full website template to the mix. This first full website template by Start Bootstrap features 17 different pages of content that is ready to customize.
The template includes a working PHP contact form, a Google Maps integrated contact page, and lots of great pages that make good use of Bootstrap’s JavaScript resources.
To get the template, simply visit http://startbootstrap.com/modern-business and preview the demo. If you like what you see, just download the .zip file. It’s free, it’s open source, and it is pre-packaged with all of the different assets that make it work including: Bootstrap 3, Font Awesome Icon Fonts, and jQuery.

We hope you enjoy this first template. It’s multi-purpose enough to use for anything really, and it’s pretty general. Next up in the lineup of full templates is going to be something a bit more artsy…perhaps something that would work well for a photography portfolio or something of the sort. We’ll see!

We’ve just launched a new template to add to the Start Bootstrap mix. We are really excited about this one too. Announcing ‘Stylish Portfolio,’ the newest addition to the Start Bootstrap template library.
This template is packed with some awesome features. For starters, we took our 'Simple Sidebar’ template which has been pretty popular and modified it a little bit to work as a responsive, right side menu bar for this site.

Other than that, things are pretty straight forward. Download it, customize it, read our design suggestions, and have at it!
