Dozens of reusable components are built into Bootstrap to provide navigation, alerts, popovers, and much more.
Ultra simplistic and minimally styled pagination inspired by Rdio, great for apps and search results. The large block is hard to miss, easily scalable, and provides large click areas.
Links are customizable and work in a number of circumstances with the right class.
.disabled for unclickable links and
.active for current page.
Add either of two optional classes to change the alignment of pagination links:
The default pagination component is flexible and works in a number of variations.
Wrapped in a
<div>, pagination is just a
<div class="pagination"> <ul> <li><a href="#">Prev</a></li> <li class="active"> <a href="#">1</a> </li> <li><a href="#">2</a></li> <li><a href="#">3</a></li> <li><a href="#">4</a></li> <li><a href="#">Next</a></li> </ul> </div>
The pager component is a set of links for simple pagination implementations with light markup and even lighter styles. It's great for simple sites like blogs or magazines.
Pager links also use the general
.disabled class from the pagination.
By default, the pager centers links.
<ul class="pager"> <li> <a href="#">Previous</a> </li> <li> <a href="#">Next</a> </li> </ul>
Badges are small, simple components for displaying an indicator or count of some sort. They're commonly found in email clients like Mail.app or on mobile apps for push notifications.
Bootstrap provides a lightweight, flexible component called a hero unit to showcase content on your site. It works well on marketing and content-heavy sites.
Wrap your content in a
div like so:
<div class="hero-unit"> <h1>Heading</h1> <p>Tagline</p> <p> <a class="btn btn-primary btn-large"> Learn more </a> </p> </div>
This is a simple hero unit, a simple jumbotron-style component for calling extra attention to featured content or information.
A simple shell for an
h1 to appropriately space out and segment sections of content on a page. It can utilize the
small, element as well most other components (with additional styles).
<div class="page-header"> <h1>Example page header</h1> </div>
By default, Bootstrap's thumbnails are designed to showcase linked images with minimal required markup.
With a bit of extra markup, it's possible to add any kind of HTML content like headings, paragraphs, or buttons into thumbnails.
.media-grid up until v1.4) are great for grids of photos or videos, image search results, retail products, portfolios, and much more. They can be links or static content.
Thumbnail markup is simple—a
ul with any number of
li elements is all that is required. It's also super flexible, allowing for any type of content with just a bit more markup to wrap your contents.
Lastly, the thumbnails component uses existing grid system classes—like
.span3—for control of thumbnail dimensions.
As mentioned previously, the required markup for thumbnails is light and straightforward. Here's a look at the default setup for linked images:
<ul class="thumbnails"> <li class="span3"> <a href="#" class="thumbnail"> <img src="https://placehold.it/260x180" alt=""> </a> </li> ... </ul>
For custom HTML content in thumbnails, the markup changes slightly. To allow block level content anywhere, we swap the
<a> for a
<div> like so:
<ul class="thumbnails"> <li class="span3"> <div class="thumbnail"> <img src="https://placehold.it/260x180" alt=""> <h5>Thumbnail label</h5> <p>Thumbnail caption right here...</p> </div> </li> ... </ul>
With Bootstrap 2, we've simplified the base class:
.alert instead of
.alert-message. We've also reduced the minimum required markup—no
<p> is required by default, just the outer
For a more durable component with less code, we've removed the differentiating look for block alerts, messages that come with more padding and typically more text. The class also has changed to
Bootstrap comes with a great jQuery plugin that supports alert messages, making dismissing them quick and easy.
Wrap your message and an optional close icon in a div with simple class.
<div class="alert"> <button class="close" data-dismiss="alert">×</button> <strong>Warning!</strong> Best check yo self, you're not looking too good. </div>
Heads up! iOS devices require an
href="#" for the dismissal of alerts. Be sure to include it and the data attribute for anchor close icons. Alternatively, you may use a
<button> element with the data attribute, which we have opted to do for our docs. When using
<button>, you must include
type="button" or your forms may not submit.
Easily extend the standard alert message with two optional classes:
.alert-block for more padding and text controls and
.alert-heading for a matching heading.
Best check yo self, you're not looking too good. Nulla vitae elit libero, a pharetra augue. Praesent commodo cursus magna, vel scelerisque nisl consectetur et.
<div class="alert alert-block"> <a class="close" data-dismiss="alert" href="#">×</a> <h4 class="alert-heading">Warning!</h4> Best check yo self, you're not... </div>
<div class="alert alert-error"> ... </div>
<div class="alert alert-success"> ... </div>
<div class="alert alert-info"> ... </div>
Default progress bar with a vertical gradient.
<div class="progress"> <div class="bar" style="width: 60%;"></div> </div>
Uses a gradient to create a striped effect (no IE).
<div class="progress progress-striped"> <div class="bar" style="width: 20%;"></div> </div>
Takes the striped example and animates it (no IE).
<div class="progress progress-striped active"> <div class="bar" style="width: 40%;"></div> </div>
Progress bars use some of the same button and alert classes for consistent styles.
Similar to the solid colors, we have varied striped progress bars.
If you use the
.active class, your
.progress-striped progress bars will animate the stripes left to right.
Progress bars use CSS3 gradients, transitions, and animations to achieve all their effects. These features are not supported in IE7-9 or older versions of Firefox.
Opera and IE do not support animations at this time.
Use the well as a simple effect on an element to give it an inset effect.
<div class="well"> ... </div>
Use the generic close icon for dismissing content like modals and alerts.
iOS devices require an href="#" for click events if you rather use an anchor.
<a class="close" href="#">×</a>
