HTML5 Boilerplate homepage | Documentation table of contents

Frequently asked questions

Why is the Google Analytics code at the bottom? Google recommends it be placed in the <head>.

The main advantage of placing it in the <head> is that you will track the user’s pageview even if they leave the page before it has been fully loaded. However, having the code at the bottom of the page helps improve performance.

How can I integrate Bootstrap with HTML5 Boilerplate?

Do I need to upgrade my site each time a new version of HTML5 Boilerplate is released?
