The Stack

To build a successful Web project, you need an efficient and stable foundation.

WordPress is a fantastic platform - until you don’t fall into the “piling plugins over plugins” trap: then a nightmare begins.
You should be aware that  somehow, your WordPress site is just as good as your worst active plugin’s code.

That’s why we won’t add bloat to it - well actually we may remove some.

All it takes in order to get started with LiveCanvas is:

  1. A vanilla WordPress install;
  2. The picostrap  theme (our free starter theme);
  3. The LiveCanvas plugin.

On another side, can I run LiveCanvas on another Theme or on my own custom Theme? 

Of course you can. The only mandatory requirement is that your Theme must include the Bootstrap CSS.

This is because the LiveCanvas plugin does not add any JS or CSS file to your site. It “expects” to find Bootstrap in the Theme.
