    i just wanted to know what you think about my first theme. Its a try to port bootstrap to wordpress. The Theme has many options (admin panel) and some shortcodes to add twitter bootstrap elements into posts.

    This shortcodes got added to the TinyMCE and they are:
    - Buttons
    - Alerts
    - Badges
    - Labels

    Furthermore you can change many things right from the admin panel:
    - Show/Hide Title, Description
    - Add Social-Buttons (Facebook, Twitter, Google+,, LinkedIn, RSS)
    - Choose a Layout (5 different Layouts)
    - Change Typography and use webfonts
    - Use a Login and/or a Homepage Logo
    - Change Footermessage
    - Use Footerwidgets
    - Use HeroUnit
    - Choose where to add 'Wells' (Twitter Bootstrap)
    - Change Backgrounds for Mainarea/Wells/HeroUnit/Footer
    - Use a Navbar with a optional searchfield (fixed top, bottom or static position)
    - and use custom css or javascript

    Here are two screenshots:

    1. Fresh installation with default options

    2. Some tweaks in admin panel ONLY

    Would like to hear some feedback :)

    The License should be included. It's GPL.

    @Rohan K:
    Sorry, but i just learned from other themes and only searched for tutorials at specific topics. For example a tutorial to create shortcodes:
    Shortcodes Tutorial
    And don't forget the WordPress Documentation it's a great resource!

    Thanks for your feedback :)

    A different alignment isn't an option right now, but you can change it with custom css. Just add the following into the "Custom CSS" Tab:


    Hope this is what you mean.

    Just added the option to change the sidebar alignment in the options panel. Just download the Theme again and overwrite your files with it. Now go to "Layout" and see the different alignment options :)

    Sorry i already fount that, but you need to work better the in page SEO, the article permalink in the home should be H2, and in the single H1, not h3
