Troubles with the navbar and col commands

Troubles with the navbar and col commands

I’ve been stuck on the portfolio project for a few days now and I don’t really know what I’m doing wrong.
I created a navbar heading and I want it to go across the top of the page when it’s in a desktop browser, but when it gets smaller, I want it to collapse. I don’t know much about the navbar heading, so I looked it up and I found some simple code that appears to work. The one problem is that it won’t toggle when it’s compressed. I checked and re-checked the code many times over but I can’t seem to find where my problem lies. I know that I can use jQuery to solve the problem, but I would rather learn how to do it in bootstrap (this time).

Also, I took out the col commands in my code, because I couldn’t seem to get them to do what I wanted to do. I used float left and right and it works, but could someone tell me how I would get an image and text to do the same thing with the col commands? I tried using the

and then set up col sizes for xs sm md and lg, but it work like I wanted it to and the image was on a separate line. I tried putting both the image and the text in the same div, but that didn’t really work out well either as the second text went too low. I found it easier just to create a CSS style sheet and give them widths.

Anyway, here is my pen for what I have so far.

Pen didn’t work, so I’m pasting the code

Thanks for any help!
