Video: Bootstrap 2: Adding Interactivity to Your Site: Welcome

Hi, I'm Jen Kramer. Welcome to Bootstrap, Adding Interactivity to Your Site. This course builds on the Up And Running With Bootstrap course located in the online training library. First, we'll make an interesting thumbnail grid, linking our thumbnails to a modal window. Next, we'll build an image carousel with all the bells and whistles, including links, captions, a position indicator, and navigation. Finally, we'll take an in depth look at forms in bootstrap. I'll show you how to style a form with bootstrap's classes. And we'll also enhance our form with JavaScript Base tool tips and the collapse feature.

Q: I am trying to create the image carousels shown in this course, and they are not functioning properly. The custom.css file seems to be missing from the exercise files and I think this is the reason. Can you provide it?
A: custom.css isn't created until the carousel indicators are added. However, these styles have to do with the way the indicators look, and nothinghas to do with the way the carousel functions.
 
Are you sure you're working with Bootstrap 2.x? You download that from here: 
http://getbootstrap.com/2.3.2/. The carousel changed radically between Bootstrap 2.x and Bootstrap 3, and this course might not work with version 3.
