bootstrap and logo placements

Hello again

This is a continuation of a previous question I asked yesterday. Still getting my head wrapped around bootstrap, so this is probably an easy one, I hope :)

Right now, on my page, I'm trying to get my logo to move over to the left a bit more (between 75-100 pixels more I'm guessing). If I add

margin-left: -100px;

to the main image class, it moves it over, but then gets real jumpy whenever I resize the browser window. Ideally, I'd like to just have the logo jump up into the left side of the nav bar when the nav bar collapses and becomes a dropdown.

any advice is greatly appreciated!

Cheers
Josh

Hi,
Can you please explain more.
Is this you want...?
Is this correct location of the logo ?

not quite. what I want to do is when the view port is roughly that size, and the menu items collapse down into the drop down menu in the top right, i want to shrink the logo down and put it in the same row as where the collapsible menu appears, all the way to the left side of that white space.

I would do the following:
1. Hide your primary logo at the same break point where the nav collapses
do this by updating the  div that wraps arund the logo from class="col-lg-3 pull-left xtLogo"  to class="col-lg-3 pull-left xtLogo hidden-xs"
The hidden-xs will do the work for you
2. Add a a second logo here
<div class="container">    
  <!-- logo that will only be visible when the primary logo is not -->  
  <img src="img/logo.png" class="pull-left brand">              
            <!-- Brand and toggle get grouped for better mobile display -->
            <div class="navbar-header">
                <button type="button" class="navbar-toggle collapsed" data-toggle="collapse" data-target="#bs-example-navbar-collapse-1" aria-expanded="false">

Open in new window


3. Add a new style that controls the new logo
img.pull-left.brand {
max-height: 60px;
margin-top: 10px;
margin-bottom: 10px;
display:none
}

Open in new window


4. Write a new media query that shows the second logo at the exact moment the prmary logo hides.
@media (min-width: 768px)
.img.pull-left.brand  {
display: block;
}

Open in new window

This will do what you need

Everything is almost there.
Update the media query I gave you to
@media (max-width: 768px){
.img.pull-left.brand  {
display: block
}}

Open in new window

Make sure you include all of the curly brackets show in my snippet.
Also make sure its at the bottom of your style sheet.
Tested it and it works perfectly..

The media query tells the smaller logo to appear at the 768px break point.
Check to make sure that the media query comes at the very end of your css as the code set up works perfectly on my local system.

Spotted the typo. You need to remove the dot from img.
Updated media query
@media (max-width: 768px){
img.pull-left.brand  {
display: block
}}

Open in new window

perfect, that does it!

the only thing I noticed is when I resized my browser, the white box on the right side sometimes jumped down the page, then back up. it seems to happen around the 950px wide mark, any ideas why and should I really concern myself with it?
