My Boostrap Menu

My Boostrap Menu


My Boostrap Menu is a fully customizable plugin that applies the Bootstrap formatting classes to any WordPress Navigation Menu. Bootstrap provides responsive menus for phones, tablets and desktops.

The plugin allows the user to select a menu by name, or by selecting your theme’s menu location. This gives extreme flexibility for theme developers, allowing multiple menus to be formatted as bootstrap menus- e.g. one fixed at the top and another at the bottom of the screen!

Works with all levels of Sub-menus! These were removed from Bootstrap in version 3, however we have included the original styles and each level will be correctly styled.

‘My Boostrap Menu’ is built on the ‘My Plugin Settings’ framework which creates simple and intuitive user interfaces for input forms; including media dialogues and the popup selection of Bootstrap Glyphicons.
