What is this plugin and why do I need it?

The Bon Toolkit provides extra functionality to the collection of themes from Bonfirelab. The Toolkit adds various widgets (Twitter, Flickr, Dribbble and social icons), and a few custom post types. The plugin is not a requirement to use themes from bonfirelab, but it will extend the themes to function as you see them in the demos.

Why are the some of the Post Type Settings available in one of my Bonfirelab themes but not the other?

The Toolkit plugin only shows options / settings for themes that support it. If your theme does not support either feature, their settings will not be shown.

Can I use this plugin with other themes?

This toolkit was developed to extend the functionality of Bonfirelab themes, however you can still use some parts of the plugin features such as widget in other themes. Advanced features like Custom Post Types will only work with Bonfirelab Themes due to framework dependant.
