Romangie: A Free Responsive WordPress Theme Based on Bootstrap

WordPress themes that integrate well-known front-end frameworks, such as Twitter Bootstrap and Foundation, offer a full range of UI tools to help users quickly customize their websites. Not having to style a ton of UI components can be quite liberating when creating a new site, especially when you combine that with the publishing power of WordPress.

Romangie is a new theme in the WordPress Theme Directory and is one of only a handful to support the latest Bootstrap 3 release. The theme is fully responsive and, although it is based on Bootstrap, it’s not heavy-handed with the styling, nor does it look like your typical Bootstrap site.


Romangie was created to have a simple design with a focus on content and performance. The theme supports all the WordPress post formats out of the box and includes styles for videos, music, chat, logs, quotes, galleries, etc.

In addition to its responsive design, Romangie is also retina ready, which means it will look great on small devices and larger formats, all the way up to 27″ Full HD displays. The theme uses scalable fonts as icons, instead of jpg images, so it won’t go blurry on high definition displays.

Romangie features at a glance:

  • Built with Bootstrap 3 at its base
  • Retina ready
  • Includes full width page template
  • Fully styled post formats
  • Sidebar and multiple footer widget areas

Because Romangie is built on Bootstrap 3, you’ll be able to take advantage of all the new features of the framework, including the improved grid system, Glyphicons, new panels and list group components, a mobile-first design approach and much more.

A lot of work has gone into this theme to ensure a modern browsing experience for users on all devices. If you want to combine WordPress with all that Bootstrap 3 has to offer, this theme is a great starting place.

You can download Romangie for free through your WordPress themes panel. For more information or to contact the theme’s developer, visit the Romangie theme homepage.

  1. I love how they created a Bootstrap theme without making it look like Bootstrap. Beautiful.

    Sarah, on another note, I’ve seen a few threads stating that they have officially & intentionally dropped the Twitter qualifier, and are now simply just going with “Bootstrap.” Chris Rebert, who is a member of the Bootstrap team on github, has been requesting that people honor this change and remove Twitter from the name.
