Bootstrap Badges and Labels


Badges are numerical indicators of how many items are associated with a link:

News 5
Comments 10
Updates 2

The numbers (5, 10, and 2) are the badges.

Use the .badge class within <span> elements to create badges:


<a href="#">News <span class="badge">5</span></a><br>
<a href="#">Comments <span class="badge">10</span></a><br>
<a href="#">Updates <span class="badge">2</span></a>

<h2>Example <span class="label label-default">New</span></h2>
<h3>Example <span class="label label-default">New</span></h3>
<h4>Example <span class="label label-default">New</span></h4>
<h5>Example <span class="label label-default">New</span></h5>
<h6>Example <span class="label label-default">New</span></h6>
