The Bootstrap Advantage (and Why It’s Better than WordPress)

First of all, Bootstrap is great because it has literally no compatibility issues with any browsers (even a lot of the older ones) which all developers know, is a big plus. It works well in any browser, and, if you use an older browser, it automatically downgrades for you to avoid issues without you having to do a thing.

Now, WordPress, as we all know, is a great CMS, but, it’s really more for people who’re using PC’s, as opposed to tablets, or smart phones… which is really a big problem in this day and age. This is where Bootstrap comes in handy, because it automatically detects the device that a person’s using, and it changes the appearance of the website accordingly so that it renders smoothly on any device, and you don’t have the UI issues which arise when you visit a typical WordPress site using a mobile device. Granted, you can do this with WordPress as well, but you have to install a plugin for it, and then just hope it works… which many of us know can be quite the hassle.

Also, its source code utilizes the two most popular preprocessors, Sass, and {less}, so you can enjoy precompiled style sheets with ease. Of course, it also comes equipped with CSS as well, so you can write the CSS code from scratch, if that’s preferable for you.

On top of all that, Bootstrap is absolutely crammed with amazing features, which quickly and easily allow you to get done what you have to, virtually hassle free. There’s a ton of documentation for stunning, custom HTML elements, as well as components for both HTML as well as CSS. And if that’s not enough, they’ve also got some amazing jQuery plugins which can be a dream come true for many of its users.

So, there you have it. Overall, it’s safe to say that Bootstrap is one of the best, if not the best toolkit of its kind, and clearly beats out much of its competition, including WordPress. WordPress was definitely great, but in this day and age, it’s simply out of date, and Bootstrap is soon to be the new #1 in all likelihood. We recommend you give it a try, if you haven’t yet.
