The WP Admin bar is persistently in the way when previewing my site-in-progress. Is this a known issue with a fix? (the page's navigation is underneath it/hidden behind it)


Is the Yoast SEO plugin compatible with this?

Are there any sites currently using Shoestrap?


Hope to see a fix for WordPress 3.8. Just installed from and all configuration options are blank.


I'm afrad not. But with Shoestrap you don't need paintstrap... You can simply add your custom colors in the admin interface of the theme and it will automatically apply the changes for you.


when i install the theme with latest version of wordpress I get this: Fatal error: Class 'Less_Cache' not found in /nfs/c01/h16/mnt/6048/domains/ on line 6

Are we supposed to install Roots along with or before ShoeStrap? I installed ShoeStrap on a brand new site but the install process is not like Roots, where they go through and change your permalink structure and upload location. Can I still do those optimizations with ShoeStrap?

Any reason you would not use this to create themes for sale on Theme forest? Possibly a stupid question, but I do not see it asked.


Excellent! :) Thanks a lot!


Is the theme compatible with Buddypress?


Hi I just want to say thanks for creating such a great framework and keeping it open source. I have been using it since version 2 and have been very happy with the results. Keep up the great work!

I have installed this theme on a fresh install and I dont seem to have any CSS styling. Did I miss a dependency? Are there any known plugin conflicts? Thanks.


I just installed the Shoestrap and I'm looking for the 'Slide option' but I can't find it. :/


Bootstrap 3.2 update coming soon?

The gallery options to select display type (tiled mosaic, square tiles, etc.) seem to be blocked by the theme?
