WrapBootstrap is one of the most popular marketplaces in the world, specializing in templates based on the powerful Bootstrap framework. There are templates and themes in different categories such as blogs, portfolios, admin panels, landing pages, online stores, corporate web templates and WordPress themes. The project is created and administered by one person (James Simmons). The review and acceptance of the newly published items can stretch out for an indeterminate period from a few weeks to a year (this is a real case). Works are accepted by stacks once in 3-4 months, and if the work is rejected, it happens without comments and explanation of reasons. There is no forum or other means of communicating with WB product authors. Support for authors is absent. The answer to a question or request about a change of a scheme of payment of the concrete work (from usual on exclusive, for example) it is possible to not wait at all. The declared Commission grid, depending on the number of sales of work, does not automatically switch when a certain sales threshold is reached. Need to write and ask. And wait for an answer very long.
Among the obvious advantages, it is worth noting the absence of repeated review and checks when updates the template by its author, open quantity of work sales and effective algorithm of ranking of works both outside and in categories. The authors are free to set their price tag on templates and find the “golden mean” in the price policy. Though, with the latest changes, this advantage disappears. The WB owner sets the upper and lower thresholds of price changes, and just started ignoring the author’s price list. So far, it is unclear what such a policy will entail. Anyway, all this concerns the authors and does not concern the buyers for whom WrapBootstrap remains an attractive resource with quality content. As stated, the project welcomes regular updates, good job descriptions, support for the latest Bootstrap versions, and work with customer comments. All this really affects the overall rating of the template on WrapBootstrap. Below you can see the ten most popular templates from the Bootstrap Admin templates category according to Template4real. You can count how much the authors of these themes earn on their excellent products, but this is another story. In the meantime…
01. SmartAdmin – Responsive WebApp

The version of Bootstrap: 3.3.7
This product is positioned by the authors as a “beyond the ordinary admin template” with a unique flat design and adaptive layout. Layout API allows you to customize a theme for any device.

The theme makes a very positive impression. A lot of ready to use functionality, customization capabilities and skins for every taste. The design seemed somewhat archaic, dull and clamped. A little free space and a lot of visual noise, strokes, fills, without which it was quite possible to manage. It is possible that the authors are not put the task to make the outstanding UI/UX design in this template, and the modernization of design can be attributed to customization to the needs of the end user.
02. Angle – Bootstrap Admin Template
One of the most visually appealing and balanced admin themes of today’s review. Excellent readable text, the well-chosen color gamut of backgrounds, graphs and interface elements.

I am glad that the authors were not lazy and made the product landing page describing all the technical features of their work with separate demos for each of the presented frameworks instead of the standard live preview.
