    There is a glyphicon for the hamburger icon:
    <span class=" glyphicon glyphicon-menu-hamburger" aria-hidden="true" style="color:white"></span>

    Tutorials great. Burger is delicious BUT when I click on it, no navigation shows. Just the burger with no links. How do we get it to open up and link to "home" "About" "contact" or whatever? – Thanks

    If you're not getting the mobile menu to pop open — make sure you have your JQuery CDN in your header

    <script src=""></script>

    Also.. make sure that is above the lines of code that have the Bootstrap CDN stuff since Bootstrap requires Jquery to work — good luck!

    My Navbar will expand when clicking the burger icon but not collapse when clicking again. Nothing in the console log either. Any ideas or is anybody else having this problem?

    the navbar toggle isn't working in any browser. I used Notepad + and Dreamweaver, but neither of the browser previews activate the toggle feature.

    I got the icon and the list doesn't show. However, the menu will not drop down. Is there a resolution to this issue? This is the same for the dropdown menu in lesson 7 as well.
    Thank you!

    Hey Boston – I did this effect and now when the viewport shrinks it the toggle icon pops up, but for some reason the menu items don't dropdown when I select the toggle icon. What gives?

    Here's the Code:
    <nav class='navbar navbar-default'>
    <div class='container-fluid'>

    <div class='navbar-header'>
    <button type='button' class='navbar-toggle' data-toggle='collapse' data-target='#mainNavBar'>
    <span class='icon-bar'></span>
    <span class='icon-bar'></span>
    <span class='icon-bar'></span>
    <a href='index.html' class='navbar-brand'>aB</a>

    <!– Menu Items –>
    <div class='collapse navbar-collapse' id='mainNavBar'>
    <ul class='nav navbar-nav navbar-right'>
    <li class='active'><a href='#'>portfolio</a></li>
    <li><a href='#'>about</a></li>
    <li><a href='#'>contact</a></li>

    How do you change the color of the toggle button when you hover over it? And the border color of it please?
    It's also moving my logo down and if I do a "fixed" position on my logo then the toggle button hides behind it when the screen gets small enough. Help please. Thanks!

    Ok help with just the logo please. I found where the bg color is! =D

    Sneaky "#" infront of the data-target caught me

    Would it not be easier to use a glyph… 

    glyphicon glyphicon-menu-hamburger

    nav bar menu didn't toggle even though I've included latest jQuery

  25. UTWY Avatar

    You could have also used the built-in Glyphicons for the toggle instead of each line, specifically "glyphicon glyphicon-menu-hamburger" as the style for one span.
