Adding Bootstrap support to your Underscore theme

  1. Link the Bootstrap stylesheet In style.css add the following line above the existing css code (but after the initial comment):

     @import '';
  2. Link Bootstrap Javascript files In footer.php add the following lines just before the closing of the body:

     <!-- bootstrap js -->
     <script src="" integrity="sha384-KJ3o2DKtIkvYIK3UENzmM7KCkRr/rE9/Qpg6aAZGJwFDMVNA/GpGFF93hXpG5KkN" crossorigin="anonymous"></script>
     <script src="" integrity="sha384-b/U6ypiBEHpOf/4+1nzFpr53nxSS+GLCkfwBdFNTxtclqqenISfwAzpKaMNFNmj4" crossorigin="anonymous"></script>
     <script src="" integrity="sha384-h0AbiXch4ZDo7tp9hKZ4TsHbi047NrKGLO3SEJAg45jXxnGIfYzk4Si90RDIqNm1" crossorigin="anonymous"></script>
  3. In header.php: add the class ‘container’ to the #page div.

  4. Configuring the menu To configure the navigation bar, we will implement a WordPress walker class created by William Patton.

    • Add walker file to theme. Download or copy class-wp-bootstrap-navwalker.php to your theme directory.
    • Register the walker in functions.php: add the following lines at the end of functions.php:

         // Register Custom Navigation Walker
    • Add menu to header.php: delete the existing menu code from header.php and paste the following code wherever you want the menu to appear (either above the titles or below them). Change bootstrap classes as you wish:

        <nav class="navbar navbar-expand-sm navbar-light bg-light">
        <a class="navbar-brand" href="#">Navbar</a>
        <button class="navbar-toggler" type="button" data-toggle="collapse" data-target="#navbarSupportedContent" aria-controls="navbarSupportedContent" aria-expanded="false" aria-label="Toggle navigation">
          <span class="navbar-toggler-icon"></span>
          wp_nav_menu( array(
          'theme_location'=> 'primary',
          'depth'         => 2,
          'container'     => 'div',
          'container_class' => 'collapse navbar-collapse',
          'container_id'  => 'navbarSupportedContent',
          'menu_class'    => 'navbar-nav mr-auto',
          'fallback_cb'   => 'WP_Bootstrap_Navwalker::fallback',
          'walker'        => new WP_Bootstrap_Navwalker())
