How to Hide or delete collapse Bootstrap menu?

I am using a custom off-screen menu for small screens and do not want the default bootstrap menu to show. I need some help in either hiding or deleting Bootstraps collapsed menu. I'm starting with Bootstrap's menu-default menu-fixed-top.  The problem can be seen at

I've tried various media-queries like .navbar .navbar-default .collapse {display:none;} without success with no luck.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Your link is broken: it gives 404 error.
If you want override bootstrap rules you have to check what is the exact declaration to everride and use that: .collapse could not be enough.

Add to your css this rule:
.navbar-default .navbar-toggle {
  display: none;

Open in new window

Each browser offers its built-in developer toolkit: through these tools you can inspect your page element by element seeing which css rules affect them, in which files each rule is  and in which line in that file.
In Firefox you can also install Firebug which does the same in a way I find more readable. This kind of tools can save you a lot of time :-)

Marco... thanks for setting my mind in the right direction. What I actually ended up with was a little different  

#navbar ul {

But you were essentially right on.

Also thanks for the very thoughtful comments about browser toolkits. I am generally aware of them and use Firebug often for basic stuff.  Too rushed to learn all its capabilities.

Sorry, probably I misunderstood your needs: with that rule (display:none for #navbar ul) you hide the whole bootstrap menu whereas I thought you want hide just the navbar for mobile devices...
If you want to hide the 3 lines menu for mobile, the rule I suggested placed in the correct media queries should do exactly what you want, but if you have slved your problem I'm happy :-)

The rule is inside a media query. I should have pointed that out in my reply. Sorry.

Thanks again.

If you are into xml. I have a new question about H5BP Ant script that is vexing me right now.
