    Question Twitter Bootstrap + CMS

    I'll jump right in. I am dealing with a team of people who have no knowledge in coding websites, nor have the time to learn. I want to be able to deliver a Bootstrap theme, link it up to some sort of CMS system and then pass it onto them. Meaning, I won't be heavily involved in updating pages.

    I have several questions about it though. So I have a Bootstrap template, suited up with libraries such as; pagination, tabs, scrollspy, etc.
    And that's the thing I don't understand! If I hand over my current design and they want to expand a page that has tabs in it, how can they possibly update the tabs or add new dropdowns through a CMS system?

    My last question. Take into consideration my last question. What CMS should I use

    I'm genuinely confused because I've used many CMS systems, like wordpress and I can't think of how these things can be incorporated?

    Thanks for reading!

    Drupal and bootstrap work together
    https://drupal.org/project/tweme
    https://drupal.org/project/kalatheme
    https://drupal.org/project/bootstrap

    You can also convert your bootstrap design into wordpress

    I'm quite certain you could integrate bootstrap and joomla as well

    Thank you for the useful links.

    I'm still confused as to how others are expected to maintain the bootstrap design when limited to a CMS.

    I'll give you an example.
    How are they expected to add more according links, etc?

    usually clients are only expected to add or change content (text, images, video, etc) when using a CMS. Changing the design or adding new pages is usually beyond what most clients will feel comfortable doing.

    Perfectly said.
    For bootstrap or other small projects use something like:
    Dropkick CMS

    Joomla also has bootstrap integration. Wordpress not so much. Depeding on what you are looking for and how tech-savvy the people are, either Drupal or Joomla will work very well. In those cases (Joomla, Drupal), you do the CMS first, then integrate Bootstrap into it, if you need to. If you just want a responsive site, you don't really need bootstrap.

    +1 to what kralcx said.
