I got through up to creating a portfolio just fine. I thought I had grasped the CSS/Bootstrap content conceptually, but clearly that is not the case and its starting to bother me. Ill show you an example.
All I’m trying to do is change the color of my navigation bar text by using the classes in CSS. I’ve tried multiple combinations including. I’ve used multiple different element tags in front of the squiggly brackets and I just don’t know what to do. Just in case the codepen gets changed, ill put it in this thread.
Ive also tried “a”, “navbar”,".navbar",".navbar-default", etc etc as the element tags. I feel even if i guessed it right theres simply something conceptually I’m not getting. Is it normal to be this stuck this early? Should I focus more on CSS instead of Bootstrap? Thanks for all your imput guys.
There were a few mistakes in your code which I cleaned up for you. That’s how a single HTML file should be written for your task. You said you were using Codepen - make sure to import bootstrap with Codepen’s interface (See: How To Add Bootstrap To Codepen)
