Bootstrap Admin

Description

This plugin has not been updated for a long time and is not compatible with latest WordPress versions (when MP6 was merged in WP Core this plugin broke).
Unfortunately I don’t have the time to update it at this time, which is a shame because it was really nice and a lot of people were using it.
If someone wants to give this plugin a new home you can contact me on @aristath

A clean, minimalistic administration theme implementing Twitter’s Bootstrap.

You can contribute by helping out in github: https://github.com/aristath/bootstrap-admin

Installation

Just copy to your plugins folder and activate (or Network activate) it.

Styling is done using less. This Plugin includes phpless http://leafo.net/lessphp/
If you want to use less when theming this plugin, you should open the includes/config.php file and
change this line

define('BOOTSTRAP_ADMIN_LESS_MODE', '0');

from ‘0’ to ‘1’.
This will tell the less preprocessor to re-compile the stylesheet
every time a change is detected on our less file.
When you’re done theming, please change it back to ‘0’ to speed-up your admin section.
(though it’s not resources-heavy, phpless is still one more script that runs).
If you are not theming using less, keep this option to ‘0’.

To enable chosen js, you can change
`define(‘BOOTSTRAP_ADMIN_CHOSEN_JS’, ‘0’);’
from ‘0’ to ‘1’.
