ASP.NET Bootstrap Template Quickstart - Part 1: Creating a new application

When you create your next project, choosing the WebForms application will do a lot more for you than previous versions. For example, you now get a solution built on Bootstrap, it uses friendly names for links eg. /About instead of /About.aspx. It provides you with two master pages: one for regular sites and one for mobile. To start using this template follow these steps:


  1. Open Visual Studio and choose to File -> New Project
  2. In the left panel Click on Visual C# -> Web -> Visual Studio 2012
  3. On the center panel choose ASP.NET Web Forms Application
  4. At the bottom choose where to put your project and give your project a name
Voila, you have yourself a great application to build on top of.  You can start applying your design and customization. 

In our followup articles we will cover some of the functional changes you may want to make to to this template to suit your needs.
