Sometimes you need some extra organization to get shit done. That’s why I prepared for you a big list of productivity tools to choose from. My advice: test them all and go with one that fits you best. I think this may help you, especially when you’re working remote or as a freelancer and you have to self-organize.
In the following tutorial, we’re going to show you 5 easy ways to modify your Bootstrap button styles. This is a quick and easy way to differentiate your site from the default Bootstrap look.
Call to actions are one of the most important elements of a website, theme or template. When you think about it, almost every web page is designed with the goal of making the user take action.
Incidentally, buttons become one of the most important elements of your web design.

In this short tutorial, we’ll show you how to do this in a manner that is clean, easy to maintain, and allows you to update to future versions of Bootstrap without breaking your custom styles (providing that the update is minor). (more…)
