Bootstrap Package

Bootstrap Package delivers a fully configured frontend theme for TYPO3, based on the Bootstrap CSS Framework.

The goal of this package is also to give an advanced example of how modern templating in TYPO3 CMS can be handled nicely without depending on third party extensions. Bootstrap Package comes with a fully configurable Frontend via TypoScript. This includes the TypoScript Constant Editor.

Minimal Dependencies

  • TYPO3 CMS 10.4 or 11.5 for Bootstrap Package 12.x
  • TYPO3 CMS 9.5 or 10.4 for Bootstrap Package 11.x
  • TYPO3 CMS 8.7 or 9.5 for Bootstrap Package 10.x, 9.x and 8.x
  • TYPO3 CMS 7.6 for Bootstrap Package 7.x

Quick Install Guide

Disable default content rendering extensions

You do not need to have Fluid Styled Content or CSS Styled Content installed, we have currently marked both extensions as conflicting to avoid misconfiguration.

If you really know what you are doing, it is safe to use core content rendering definitions alongside with the Bootstrap Package. But please be aware that we are adding more content elements that are not supported from those extensions.

  • css_styled_content
  • fluid_styled_content

Make sure you have a root page

Create a new page or edit an existing one and set this as root page. You can find this option in the page-edit-mode filed under behavior/miscellaneous.

Create a new Template on this Page


  • Template Title: You can name this as you like: Example "Bootstrap Package"
  • Website Title: This will be your website title visible in the frontend


  • Clear Constants and Setup by checking the boxes
  • Clear the predefined TypoScript setup from the textbox if any
  • Use this Template as Root-Level Template by checking the box


Include static (from extensions)

  • Bootstrap Package (required)

Static Template Files from TYPO3 Extensions

  • Include before all static templates if root flag is set
