Below are a list of modules the Drupal Bootstrap base theme actively supports.
This list is constantly growing and each module's support has usually been
implemented because of either extremely high usage or the fact it was designed
explicitly for use with this base theme and has maintainers in both projects.
See project page for a list of supported modules.
The following modules are "un-supported modules" and are not documented by the
Drupal Bootstrap base theme. This does not mean that the base theme will not
work with them or that they are "bad". It simply means that this project does
not have the time, energy or effort it would take to document "every possible
It is certainly possible that some of these modules may eventually become
"officially" supported. That will happen only, of course, if there are enough
people to help contribute solid solutions and make supporting them by the base
theme maintainers a relatively "easy" task.
Some of these modules may have blogs or videos floating around on the internet.
However, if you choose to use one of these modules, you are really doing so
at your own expense. Do not expect support from this base theme or the project
you are attempting to integrate the base theme with.
Internet Explorer 8 requires the use of Respond.js to enable media queries
(Responsive Web Design). However, Respond.js does not work with CSS that is
referenced via a CSS @import statement, which is the default way Drupal
adds CSS files to a page when CSS aggregation is disabled. To ensure
Respond.js works properly, enable CSS aggregation at the bottom of:
Q: Is Drupal Bootstrap a module or theme?
More specifically a base theme. It is not a module. Modules are allowed to

concept to understand and limits themes from participating in a wider range of
Q: Where can I discuss an issue in real time?
A: In IRC
The Drupal Bootstrap project and its maintainers use the #drupal-bootstrap
channel on the freenode.net IRC network to communicate in real time. Please read
the following for more information on how to the community uses this technology:
Chat with the Drupal Community on IRC.
Please keep in mind though, this IS NOT a "support" channel. It's primary
use is to discuss issues and to help fix bugs with the base theme itself.
Q: Where should I make changes?
A: In a custom sub-theme
You should never modify any theme or sub-theme that is packaged and released
from Drupal.org. If you do, all changes you have made would be lost once that
theme is updated. This makes keeping track of changes next to impossible.
Instead, you should create a custom sub-theme that isn't hosted on Drupal.org.
