Using Bootstrap with LESS

Updated 2 years ago by Chris83How-tos1 comment – viewed 36,313 times – ( +14 ) – version 1.1
I discovered Twitter Bootstrap almost two years ago. After trying it out for a while I fell in love with it. It didn't take long before I realized that it would be great to write an extension that allowed developers to start using Bootstrap in their Yii projects. One night I sat down and started writing what later became my now popular bootstrap extension. Now that the extension is quite widely used in the community I felt that it was time to write about how to use Bootstrap to its full potential. If you use the Bootstrap CSS files you're really missing out on some great features. After reading this article you'll be able to take full advantage of Bootstrap using LESS.

Handling Bootstrap active tabs in Yii via URL

Updated 2 years ago by JamesBarnsleyHow-tos6 comments – viewed 18,001 times – ( +7 ) – version 1.1
As a lead developer at Mutable Labs I found that when using the Yii Bootstrap tabs component you will sometimes want to direct the user to a specific tab and not necessarily the first tab. Yii Bootstrap already provides the "active" variable so you can define whether the tab is the active tab or not in PHP. I generally find though that a PHP solution to this problem is rather cumbersome as every tab component will need the PHP code inserted or you will have to extend the tab component somehow to do it.

Cheat Sheet: Displaying Name instead of Numbers and Displaying Alphanumeric instead of numeric values

Updated 2 years ago by skwordenHow-tos4 comments – viewed 13,879 times – ( +4 / -1 ) – version 1.1
I keep a reference to some simple but painful task if you forget a common or something. I am new to Yii and this took awhile for me to figure out. Everything I read said do this or do that and not a single one worked for me. However, the following did.

PayPal Integration And IPN (Instant Payment Notification)

Updated 2 years ago by yasenHow-tos3 comments – viewed 17,055 times – ( +9 ) – version 1.1
Had to implement PayPal payments for a client and would like to share part of my code with you. Because the tutorial will become too long, I'll leave some code to be done by you, e.g. creating models, controllers and db tables for products, orders.
