WordPress From Bootstrap to WordPress Add Bootstrap Components to WordPress Theme Dropdown Bootstrap Menus and the Walker Class

Is it necessary to install the Walker plugin, if all I want to do is add a caret to the dropdown?

It seems like overkill to install the Walker plugin if all I really want to do is add the caret icon next to dropdown links.

If you just want to add the dropdown caret it's overkill. Walker functions should be used to change the actual HTML structure that WP spits out.

If you're happy with the default HTML structure WP uses, I'd just add the caret with CSS and be done with it.

Sounds good, thats what I was thinking. Thanks for your quick response!
