Make This Menu A BootStrap Menu

I am new to bootstrap.

Will someone please show me how to convert this menu to a bootstrap menu? It doesn’t have to have the little arrows on the bottom unless you know how to do it. You can choose whatever colors. I just need the basic template and I can figure the color schema out. Here is my link.



Firstly, welcome to the forums.

While we are primarily here to help people with their Free Code Camp progress, we are open to people on other paths, too. Some of what you are asking is pretty trivial in the Free Code Camp context, so you might find that if you’re not getting the instruction and material you need in your current studies, the FCC curriculum will really help you get started. At a modest guess I’d say investing a 4-5 hours working through the curriculum here will really pay off. You can find the curriculum at

With your current questions, we don’t have enough context to know what you already know or don’t know, so it is impossible to guide you without just telling you the answer (which we won’t do).

It is pretty typical on here for people to share a codepen / jsfiddle example of what they have tried so that anyone helping has more of an idea of what help is actually helpful.

Please provide some example of what you’ve tried and I’m sure you’ll get more help.

Happy coding :slight_smile:

Hi Kewlgeye,

Here is a simple bootstrap-only (very little additional styling) menu similar to your demo:

Your buttons include some sort of gradient which you may achieve using the linear-gradient() css property ( or background-image (

The arrows can be part of the background image. Otherwise you would have to play around with before and after pseudoelements (

Hope this helps!
