Bootstrap grid arrangement

can someone please tell me if there is any chance I can create this layout in HTML using Bootstrap?

I just can't figure out if it's even possible.


thank you

that is absolutely possible using bootstrap. Bootstrap 3 just came out and most of the videos that are on this site were made using bootstrap 2. The look and feel has changed quite a bit, and even the bootstrap site is completely different.

Read here about the grid system. Its pretty easy to use, and easy to implement the "stacking" for the mobile site and then a horizontal layout for the normal site

i believe its possible..

at first by looking at the full-width mockup, its possible by making a single row with 2 column (span7, span5), then inside of those column you declare another nested row with span7/span5 respectively.

But, the moment i see the div sequence on that responsive mockup, we have to use another approach.

this all should be in inside a single .row div, then inside you just create all those div in your preffered order, (span7, span5, span7, span5), i havent actually code this yet, but it should work as expected. and when the responsive is activated, all the span* width will be reset and it should display/stack each other according to the expected sequence (1,2,3,4).

regarding Bootstrap 3, the only thing i noticed is they remove the gutter by default, giving you full flexibility for grid~ing your layout.. :D

thanks for your reply;

If I put all the spans in a single row there will be space between those two span5. http://postimg.org/image/6p0ksed4v

I was thinking about using Masonry.js but this is also not a good solution for me cause one of those span's will have a mini slider inside and the height can't be fixed.

ic.. masonry might be able to solve this.. as for the responsive version, just reset the width as usuall..
