How can I center Twitter-Bootstrap 3 navbar buttons?

Tags: css,twitter-bootstrap,centering,navbar

Problem :

How can I center the buttons in the jsFiddle I set up so that the buttons are equally spaced and centered within and through-out the navbar?

I have tried different methods such as

display:inline-block;margin:0 auto; text-align:center;

But I cannot get it to work.

If you could give a little explanation instead of just fixing the CSS as I want to learn so I do not have to keep coming back here.

EDIT: Just like how they are centered here ^.

Solution :

Bootstrap 3 has a new 'nav-justified' class for this purpose. No extra CSS required:

<div class="container">
  <h3 class="text-muted">Project name</h3>
  <ul class="nav nav-justified">
    <li class="active"><a href="#">Home</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Projects</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Services</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Downloads</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">About</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Contact</a></li>
