JBST Masonry

JBST is a powerful theme framework that can be used as a standalone website builder or as a framework to create child themes for wordpress build on Twitter's Bootstrap 3. Full customizable with Less. Masonry is a JavaScript grid layout library. It works by placing elements in optimal position based on available vertical space, sort of like a mason fitting stones in a wall. You've probably seen it in use all over the Internet.

Getting started

  1. Download, install (do not active) JBST https://github.com/bassjobsen/jamedo-bootstrap-start-theme/archive/master.zip
  2. Copy JBST Masonry Theme files to wordpress/wp-content/themes/jbst-masonry-theme/
  3. rename the folder from step 2 and open 'style.css' and change the theme info (name, author, description, etc)
  4. activate your child theme in your Dashboard: Appearance > Themes
  5. set the base color in your Dashboard: Appearance > Less Compiler, enter @masonry-base-color: #578562; in the text area and press "Recompile Less code"

Less Compiler

LESS Compiler

The built-in LESS compiler (Appearance > LESS Compiler) plays an important role in JBST childtheming:

Use the built-in compiler to:

  • set any Bootstrap variable or use Bootstrap's mixins: -@navbar-default-color: blue; - create a custom button: .btn-custom { .button-variant(white; red; blue); }
  • set any built-in LESS variable: for example @footer_bg_color: black; sets the background color of the footer to black
  • use built-in mixins: - add a custom font: `.include-custom-font(@family: arial,@font-path, @path: @custom-font-dir, @weight: normal, @style: normal);

Alternatively you can also add the LESS code mentioned above to less/custom.less in your child theme's folder.

JBST Masonry Theme's Less variables:

@masonry-base-color: #028302;
@masonry-header-backgroundcolor: @masonry-base-color;
@masonry-header-fontcolor: contrast(@masonry-header-backgroundcolor);
@masonry-article-box-shadow: "7px 7px 5px 0px rgba(50, 50, 50, 0.75)";
@masonry-article-backgroundcolor: white;
@masonry-article-fontcolor: contrast(@masonry-article-backgroundcolor);
@navbar-default-bg: black;
@navbar-default-link-color: contrast(@navbar-default-bg);
@navbar-default-link-hover-color: contrast(@masonry-base-color);
@navbar-default-link-active-color: contrast(@masonry-base-color);
@navbar-default-link-hover-bg: @masonry-base-color;
@navbar-default-link-active-bg: @masonry-base-color;
@footer-bg-color: black;
@footer-text-color: contrast(@footer-bg-color);
@footer-link-color: contrast(@footer-bg-color);

You always have to recompile your LESS code into CSS by using the recompile function (Appearance > LESS Compiler) after changing less/custom.less.
