Clean Blog is a stylish, responsive blog theme for Bootstrap created by Start Bootstrap. This theme features a blog homepage, about page, contact page, and an example post page along with a working PHP contact form.
To begin using this template, choose one of the following options to get started:
npm i startbootstrap-clean-blog
git clone https://github.com/StartBootstrap/startbootstrap-clean-blog.git
After downloading, simply edit the HTML and CSS files included with
dist directory. These are the only files you need to worry about, you can ignore everything else! To preview the changes you make to the code, you can open the
index.html file in your web browser.
Clone the source files of the theme and navigate into the theme's root directory. Run
npm install and then run
npm start which will open up a preview of the template in your default browser, watch for changes to core template files, and live reload the browser when changes are saved. You can view the
package.json file to see which scripts are included.
The contact form available with this theme is prebuilt to use SB Forms. SB Forms is a simple form solution for adding functional forms to your theme. Since this theme is prebuilt using our SB Forms markup, all you need to do is sign up for SB Forms on Start Bootstrap.
After signing up you will need to set the domain name your form will be used on, and you will then see your
access key. Copy this and paste it into the
data-sb-form-api-token='API_TOKEN' data attribute in place of
API_TOKEN. That's it! Your forms will be up and running!
If you aren't using SB Forms, simply delete the custom data attributes from the form, and remove the link above the
</body> tag to SB Forms.
