Nav Menus

If you want to create a simple horizontal menu, add the .nav class to a <ul> element, followed by .nav-item for each <li> and add the .nav-link class to their links:

Example

<ul class="nav">
  <li class="nav-item">
    <a class="nav-link" href="#">Link</a>
  </li>
  <li class="nav-item">
    <a class="nav-link" href="#">Link</a>
  </li>
  <li class="nav-item">
    <a class="nav-link" href="#">Link</a>
  </li>
  <li class="nav-item">
    <a class="nav-link disabled" href="#">Disabled</a>
  </li>
</ul>

Toggleable / Dynamic Tabs

HOME

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit, sed do eiusmod tempor incididunt ut labore et dolore magna aliqua.

To make the tabs toggleable, add the data-toggle="tab" attribute to each link. Then add a .tab-pane class with a unique ID for every tab and wrap them inside a <div> element with class .tab-content.

If you want the tabs to fade in and out when clicking on them, add the .fade class to .tab-pane:

Example

<!-- Nav tabs -->
<ul class="nav nav-tabs">
  <li class="nav-item">
    <a class="nav-link active" data-toggle="tab" href="#home">Home</a>
  </li>
  <li class="nav-item">
    <a class="nav-link" data-toggle="tab" href="#menu1">Menu 1</a>
  </li>
  <li class="nav-item">
    <a class="nav-link" data-toggle="tab" href="#menu2">Menu 2</a>
  </li>
</ul>

<!-- Tab panes -->
<div class="tab-content">
  <div class="tab-pane active container" id="home">...</div>
  <div class="tab-pane container" id="menu1">...</div>
  <div class="tab-pane container" id="menu2">...</div>
</div>

The same code applies to pills; only change the data-toggle attribute to data-toggle="pill":

Example

<!-- Nav pills -->
<ul class="nav nav-pills">
  <li class="nav-item">
    <a class="nav-link active" data-toggle="pill" href="#home">Home</a>
  </li>
  <li class="nav-item">
    <a class="nav-link" data-toggle="pill" href="#menu1">Menu 1</a>
  </li>
  <li class="nav-item">
    <a class="nav-link" data-toggle="pill" href="#menu2">Menu 2</a>
  </li>
</ul>

<!-- Tab panes -->
<div class="tab-content">
  <div class="tab-pane active container" id="home">...</div>
  <div class="tab-pane container" id="menu1">...</div>
  <div class="tab-pane container" id="menu2">...</div>
</div>
