    Thank you for the development - a great theme to start from. May I ask a question which I am sure will strike others as simple! I am unsure the scope of Bootstrap 3 functionality to anticipate.

    I have tested css styling - and it works, thank you. Should I anticipate being able to use javascript component features such as the accordion? I am not finding it and the only references are to requiring jquery - if I reference UI will it allow access to the UI components, too?

    The jquery version is available on:

    I am happy to announce that the Bootstrap theme has received the Featured Moodle plugin award! See the great interview with Bas at Plugin traffic blog. Thanks Bas, Stuart and David for your work on this project.

    Hi Bas,

    thanks for this theme. I want to update to the moodle version 3.1.1. Do you know if the Theme version 3.0.0 (2016042200) of Bootstrap is compatible with the version of Moodle 3.1.1?

    Best regards

    Good theme, I love the styling. It allows for many customisation to be done very easily with some CSS. Great job big grin
