Building fluxbb with bootstrap

I've started many forums over the last decade, using every major platform. I always loved the premium software like vB and IPB, but they often have features I never use. Why pay for something you won't use? For basic communities I enjoy starting with a simple platform and building off of it to suite my own needs.

Vanilla forums was my first choice because of how minimalist it was. However I decided to switch to FluxBB because it was minimalist as well, but retained some classic forum features and structures that I missed with Vanilla.

Anyway, I started messing with the Air theme but decided I wanted to try and implement bootstrap into FluxBB. This is my progress so far. I've nearly completed the index page, so this gives you an idea of what it will look like. I'm especially proud of the "user" dropdown. I'll be dropping the topic dropdown and replacing it with a search dropdown which includes the topic links + a search bar + an advanced search link to clean it up a bit.

Re: Building fluxbb with bootstrap

Git repo coming soon. I've never used it before so I'll figure out the setup. But I understand how powerful and helpful it is to projects like this.

A little bit more work done. I've converted the forum table into a bootstrap grid system that allows the categories to compress and minimize when a user is logged on via mobile device. As your display moves into tablet size it expands automatically. This works for the board information section as well, however I have only placed the basic structure and info in that area. I am not sure how I plan to make that section look yet.

This is what a mobile phone user sees:

Menu expanded:

Category expanded (notice the forum description does not display in this mode to save space):
