Nav margin

Hi I have this margin space that is pushing my nav
and not centering it properly. I am not sure where it is coming from.
Viewed in the Mobile version of the website: Website

It is the green ox highlight space that I cannot seem to locate.

It’s actually padding, not a margin. Apply this to your .nav.navbar-nav element, to whichever media query you desire:

padding: 0;

oh yeah it was the auto padding of the ul! thanks.

No problem.

To avoid such issues in the future, I’d recommend using a CSS reset. Just pop this into the top of your stylesheet:

* {
  box-sizing: border-box;
  margin: 0;
  padding: 0;
  border: 0;
  list-style-type: none;
  font: inherit;
  font-size: 100%;
  vertical-align: baseline; }

It eliminates pre-set styling on all markup elements, to avoid nasty surprises. :wink:

What do you do about all the form elements you just destroyed?


hmm not sure about this it may be to risky on some elements.

Lol this sounds funny :grin:

I agree.

yeah the universal selector should be more carefully thought out when
