I now introduce the first Bootstrap-enabled template site…
What is it?
The Standard Template is a template website designed for users like yourself! Wikidot allows you to clone the site so that you have a solid foundation to build from. It provides basic pages and facilities to help you get started on your new project. For instance:
- Twitter Bootstrap is integrated into the site's layout and design so that your site will look great regardless of the device viewed upon.
- The home page is designed as a cover, giving you all the code necessary to adapt it to your own needs.
- Top and Side navigation bars are provided and easily customizable
- All pages use categories for stronger organization
- A standard HTML layout allows for consistent theme creation and theme compatibility
- Let others discuss your site on a public forum provided by the template
Wikidot has been slowly integrating Bootstrap into its design, an effort toward mobile compatibility. This template site takes full advantage of that effort, giving you as a user the capability to quickly and easily develop a slick, clean Wikidot site.
How can I start?
If you have been looking to start a new web-project, then this template is the perfect starting point. All you need to do is visit the site and click on the "Get Started" button located at the top. If you have a Wikidot account, then this will allow you to clone the site. Once you have done that, your newly created site comes packaged with a number of help pages that provide basic Wikidot editing information.
This template has been long in the making and is a major landmark in Wikidot's move toward mobile compatibility. We hope this makes it very simple and easy for you to create a site that looks modern on any device, whether it be desktop, tablet, or mobile. If you find problems, don't hesitate to tell us. Otherwise, let us know what you think below!
