Download and Installation

To begin using this template, choose one of the following options to get started:


Basic Usage

After downloading, simply edit the HTML and CSS files included with dist directory. These are the only files you need to worry about, you can ignore everything else! To preview the changes you make to the code, you can open the index.html file in your web browser.

Advanced Usage

Clone the source files of the theme and navigate into the theme's root directory. Run npm install and then run npm start which will open up a preview of the template in your default browser, watch for changes to core template files, and live reload the browser when changes are saved. You can view the package.json file to see which scripts are included.

Contact Form

The contact form available with this theme is prebuilt to use SB Forms. SB Forms is a simple form solution for adding functional forms to your theme. Since this theme is prebuilt using our SB Forms markup, all you need to do is sign up for SB Forms on Start Bootstrap.

After signing up you will need to set the domain name your form will be used on, and you will then see your access key. Copy this and paste it into the data-sb-form-api-token='API_TOKEN' data attribute in place of API_TOKEN. That's it! Your forms will be up and running!

If you aren't using SB Forms, simply delete the custom data attributes from the form, and remove the link above the closing </body> tag to SB Forms.
