style sheet not loaded all the way?

I am following the bootstrap on wordpress. I have added.


function theme_styles() {

    wp_enqueue_style( 'bootstrap_css', get_template_directory_uri() . '/css/bootstrap.min.css' );

    wp_enqueue_style( 'main_css', get_template_directory_uri() . '/style.css' );


add_action( 'wp_enqueue_scripts' , 'theme_styles' );

function theme_js () {

wp_register_script( 'html5_shiv','https://oss.maxcdn.com/libs/html5shiv/3.7.0/html5shiv.js', '','', false );



into the function php. but the site does show the theme code loaded on there. how ever the theme has come through in some bits i.e the contaner and button styles.

any ideas?

yes it is a new site and what is gulp or grunt?

gulp/grunt are javascript task managers that do a lot of things to process files when developing. One of the big things is using a watch command to compile sass to css. I take it that the bootstrap's sass files and compiles them. Here is a really good blog post about enqueueing styles:
