We’re making it easier to provide your users a great website experience with the introduction of an optional plugin: Easy Bootstrap Shortcodes (EBS). This plugin utilizes Bootstrap, a popular, modern web technology framework which is a part of the underlying code for the Heelium theme. This technology includes powerful interface components such as tabs, toggles, sliders, tooltips, dropdown menus, and much more.

Activate the plugin by going to the Dashboard > Appearance > Plugins and clicking on “Activate” for Easy Bootstrap Shortcodes. There will be new icons in the page and post editor toolbar:

If your Easy Boostrap Shortcodes icons are not visible in the tinyMCE editor after activation you may need to click your Toolbar Toggle button.

These new options make it easy to include these UI components (toggles, tabs, etc) into the the body of your page or post in the form of shortcodes. No programming required. Simply move your cursor over the icons in the editor to view a description of their functionality.

For example, the following three column content areas use the the following Bootstrap functionality:

  • Multi-columns
  • Icons
  • Buttons
