Question regarding bootstrap theme intergration

I was wondering if someone could verify whether or not my understanding of this is correct or incorrect. I have a website that is using vanilla for the forums and bootstrap for the theme; my homepage however is using wordpress. Currently the homepage and forums look like two completely different websites since their themes are I'm looking for a clean, premium wordpress theme that I can use for my homepage and my forums. I know I can embed my forum, but I'd like to still have the functionality of bootstrap's theme. For example: since bootstrap is such a popular theme, most plugins are built with it in mind and work well with it. If I just embed my forums to a wordpress site with a wordpress theme, I'm worried that certain plugins won't work well. So I guess my question is, what is the best way to go about this?

I have a theme in mind that is a wordpress theme but is also compatible with bootstrap. Does this mean I could still technically have bootstrap as my theme, but have it displayed as this this theme? Here is the theme:

    @rasteron I see, so basically I would find a WP theme I like for my homepage...then use custom css to try and mimic that theme a best as possible? That makes sense.

    My only question is, this theme says it's compatible with bootstrap...what exactly does that mean?

    If it is compatible with bootstrap, I assume the markup used probably is compatible.

    Meaning a bootstrap based theme will completely skin the site.

    @Skisma Yes, there's already one good example here with Sicnus's wordpress and vanilla site.

    @hgtonight Maybe it's talking about the bootstrap framework vs the theme? It would be really sweet though if it had a bootstrap based theme that just worked!

    @rasteron Awesome! Thanks for providing an example
