WordPress From Bootstrap to WordPress Setup a Bootstrap Theme Install Bootstrap Shortcode Plugin

JavaScript Conflict when using Bootstrap Shortcodes wordpress plugin

If you are going to use Bootstrap Shortcodes plugin (http://wordpress.org/plugins/bootstrap-shortcodes/) but you have included Bootstrap Core files via functions.php in your WordPress installation please make sure to go to Settings -> BS Shortcodes and uncheck those two options

Load Twitter Bootstrap css file

Load Twitter Bootstrap javascript file

Otherwise it may impact your page functionality. It took me some time to work out that this was stopping my Bootstrap NavBar from showing the drop-down menus on-click, in other words it would never show when clicked.

Just to clarify I was using WordPress nav walker class (https://github.com/twittem/wp-bootstrap-navwalker) along side this plugin to correctly generate the markup for the menu.

hope that helps...

Thanks man! I added a note in the video notes about this.

Hm, I am still unable to see the icons despite having my "kitchen sink" open as well as de-selecting the loads in the settings. Not sure how to proceed, feeling really stuck :(
