Hi,
In Twitter bootstrap this navbar collapses or stacks when browser resizes to under 979px.
How do I get it to collapse under a different size like 500px or any other width?


  <div class='navbar navbar-inverse'>
      <div class='navbar-inner nav-collapse' style="height: auto;">
        <ul class="nav">
          <li class="active"><a href="#">Home</a></li>
          <li><a href="#">Page One</a></li>
          <li><a href="#">Page Two</a></li>
        </ul>
      </div>
    </div>

do the width in percentage or vw and set min-width to 500px.

Try the following steps;;;

first locate the css where it is written  
@media (max-width: 979px)

Open in new window

in the bootstrap CSS....

Then make sure that it has ...only the navigation ids and classes... and one body tag....

If its true then modify the media query like the following....

@media (max-width: 500px) // Change that to your desired one.. 

Open in new window

Ok i changed the media query and it works but there is so much other code I have changed as well that is the worry.

isnt it better I just add more css to override the specific css class/id instead of effecting everything else as there might be some unwanted side effects?

Placing my css file to override the boostrap css didnt work actually even when my css file is placed after the bootstrap css
bootstrap-responsive.css

There is a solution for this....

Just add !important to every single style of your code... That you have provided..

Wait I have done that for you...

@media (max-width: 379px) { 
  body {
    padding-top: 0 !important;
  }
  .navbar-fixed-top,
  .navbar-fixed-bottom {
    position: static !important;
  }
  .navbar-fixed-top {
    margin-bottom: 20px !important;
  }
  .navbar-fixed-bottom {
    margin-top: 20px !important;
  }
  .navbar-fixed-top .navbar-inner,
  .navbar-fixed-bottom .navbar-inner {
    padding: 5px !important;
  }
  .navbar .container {
    width: auto !important;
    padding: 0 !important;
  }
  .navbar .brand {
    padding-right: 10px !important;
    padding-left: 10px !important;
    margin: 0 0 0 -5px !important;

no this doesnt work sorry.

if I have your code in a css file it doesnt override the bootstrap css as I just tied it. Anyway I am after a conventional solution so maybe I just need to alter bootstrap css and leave it as that.

if I have a problem then I can custom make a navigation my self and avoid navbar classes

Let me again tell you the steps...


First locate the navbar files in the bootstrap-responsive.css under the media queries... then cut them and paste then in the end of the bootstrap-responsive.css under the head
@media (max-width: 379px)

Open in new window

... If possible please give me a live url of the page...

yes it works in the same file as you suggest.
it doesnt work when I place the same code in my own css and leave the orginal.
no matter as I dont intend to use the nav bar anyway.
