Fix the Navigation to the Top
Hi there in this video, we're going to get our navigation to be sticky. So when we scroll it still stays at the top and also we'll fix our little problem where we're on mobile and it's over on this left hand side here, we're going to move it so it lines up nicely on the right. Alright. Remember earlier in the course we went and fixed all headed to the top, we made a class that said position fixed okay, on the nav and that will work. But there are some fancy stuff that bootstrap has got. Finding it is always the fun part. You're like all right, so where's your fixed heading? Okay. And position fixed looks good. This one here, knave bar fixed. Look at that, that's going on this one, you end up with this examples page and you're like, that's not quite what I wanted to go back to documentation. It's looking fixed again and this is the I don't know, I guess I want to make sure that when you are doing yourself you're like, am I doing this right? You're like, yep, yep. It is just working out ...
what bootstrap have done. Okay, fixed top. You're perfect. Just add that to the div which div probably the first one. This kind of wraps everything up my navigation. Let's edit here, paste it and you're like bingo job done. Okay. Kind of works. It's fixed to the top but it's broken my navigation so probably Bootstrap being great. They've got something else Okay. The sticky is the word Okay, so let's have a look. So sticky, position, sticky top. It's actually just underneath where we were. All right. Let's fix top and just a little bit blow. Okay. Is sticky top. So here we go copy and let's try sticky top instead of fixed up. Give that a will and ah there we go. You decide whether you like our fixed top especially because it's see through and kind of covering things up to you. But that is how you fix the top navigation in bootstrap four, right. The last thing I want to do before we go is this has been annoying me. Okay. There's this drop down and it appears all the way over here on the left. Okay. And you're like, why is that if I've broken it? And I was looking at, I was like, can I break that? And then I had to look back at our old when we just got it first installed and got it started. Okay, so let's inspect this one. Actually it's a default from bootstrap. Okay, so this is how it came out of the box and you can see it just kind of pushes it over here with a background color, which we removed. So that's the default. How to fix it. I spend a good chunk trying to fix that. Okay, I tried to work out, I tried to use margin because we did margin left auto. Remember we override that to make it go all the way over this side. But it turns out it only works for, remember we did it here, We said on the U L A R G U L tried to menu, we said it was on margin was on right. Okay. And it means that it looked like this. Remember it was kind of jammed up against the side so he just did that and you'd assume it would have fixed the buttons as well, but nope, they still appear when it's down on mobile all the way over here. I tried a couple of things. I tried text left. I tried applying the Ml auto to a couple of different items in here. Still couldn't work it out. Eventually I found this. Okay, so there is an option to float items. Okay. We looked at, it's kind of like an old, not an old school, but a different way of aligning left and right. Okay. So I'm gonna do float and I'm going to have a look under where is it? It's under utilities under float. Okay, So you can kind of see float left, float, right, float. None. Okay. And kind of moves them left or right. Okay. You can do it for different media queries. So I wanted to float to the right. Please let's give this a go and let's put it in our code. Where does it go? Very good point. Let's have a little look at inspecting inside of chrome. Okay, so let's pop this down. Let's use this little option. Okay, to inspect the element and we're looking for the, like the container. We don't want the actual buttons themselves were kind of just moving your mouse around until we find something that feels like the container and I'm going to click on it and then down here I'm just going to stick it to this and see what goes. So the same ul Okay, so where is it the ul class? We're gonna add this as well and see how that goes. Drop down. Hey. Nice. Alright. It's been pushed down a bit too far. My logo is too big. I need to make that smaller. So there's never hasn't got this big gap between here, but that's something I can let you fix. Make the logo smaller. Alright, Dropdowns work. Everything works, it's lovely. All right on to the next video.
