“There are many great portfolio templates out there already. However, you should consider building your portfolio page as much as you can from the ground up. Using Bootstrap can help make this process much easier for you.”
@fernibain hey man. startbootstrap actually may be a bit confusing for you to get going as well.
What would possibly would be best is to go to http://getbootstrap.com/getting-started/
Scroll down the page to the “basic template”
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge">

<title>Bootstrap 101 Template</title>
<!-- Bootstrap -->
<link href="css/bootstrap.min.css" rel="stylesheet">
<!-- HTML5 shim and Respond.js for IE8 support of HTML5 elements and media queries -->
<!-- WARNING: Respond.js doesn't work if you view the page via file:// -->
<!--[if lt IE 9]>
<!-- Include all compiled plugins (below), or include individual files as needed -->
Start with this.
And then directly below this on the same page. You’ll see examples using the framework and how to implement different components. I’d recommend looking at the code of some of the examples. And begin with trying to implement the navbar code into your basic starter template.
