Re: ImpressCMS 4-col themes for dummies (me) - basics and install in 1.3.10

I think Bootstrap is a good choice. The 12-column grid is very flexible and a lot less painful than fiddling around with percentages once you get used to it. Also great for making a site mobile friendly. There is very little Javascript required if you just want to mess with a Bootstrap theme, mainly it's just assigning Bootstrap CSS classes to your existing HTML.

I've been moving away from multi-column layouts recently. Even with Bootstrap the less columns you have the easier things are to adapt to a mobile display.

There's quite a few good (really outstanding) free themes available for Bootstrap (though the page/file size runs pretty high on some of them). I found them pretty easy to adapt for my other project, although I haven't tried it on ICMS yet it shouldn't be too hard.

Good free Bootstrap theme sites include: BlacktTie:
Start Bootstrap:
Get Bootstrap:

By the way, I still can't find a way to have line breaks in my posts. If I preview the post (first time) it looks fine, but it ends up with no breaks.<!-- input filtered -->
