Bootstrap Navbar right align

Bootstrap navbar helps a lot when it comes to responsive web development. You can build numerous variations of the Bootstrap navbar. Here is a Bootstrap navbar with all the links right-aligned. It can be right-aligned using CSS properties, but Bootstrap provides many inbuilt classes. So, that’s what I have used.

Here is a step-by-step tutorial to right-align items in a Bootstrap navbar.

1. If you follow the Bootstrap documentation, this is the basic left-aligned navbar:

<nav class="navbar navbar-expand-lg navbar-light bg-light">
  <a class="navbar-brand" href="#">Navbar</a>
  <button class="navbar-toggler" type="button" data-toggle="collapse" data-target="#navbarNav" aria-controls="navbarNav" aria-expanded="false" aria-label="Toggle navigation">
    <span class="navbar-toggler-icon"></span>
  </button>
  <div class="collapse navbar-collapse" id="navbarNav">
    <ul class="navbar-nav">
      <li class="nav-item active">
        <a class="nav-link" href="#">Home <span class="sr-only">(current)</span></a>
      </li>
      <li class="nav-item">
        <a class="nav-link" href="#">Features</a>
      </li>
      <li class="nav-item">
        <a class="nav-link" href="#">Pricing</a>
      </li>
      <li class="nav-item">
        <a class="nav-link disabled" href="#" tabindex="-1" aria-disabled="true">Disabled</a>
      </li>
    </ul>
  </div>
</nav>

Output:

2. To get the links in right on large screens, add class ml-auto to <ul> on line 7. (I changed the background-color to #a4fafa and added some CSS.)

<ul class="navbar-nav ml-auto">

Update: If you are using Bootstrap 5 navbar use ms-auto instead of ml-auto.

<ul class="navbar-nav ms-auto">

.navbar .navbar-nav .nav-link {
    color: #000000;
    font-size: 1.1em;
}
.navbar .navbar-nav .nav-link:hover{
    color: #808080;
}

Output:

Bootstrap Navbar right aligned
on smaller screens

3. To align the links to the right on a small screen as well, set text-align to right for navbar-nav.

.navbar-nav{
  text-align: right;
}

Output:

Bootstrap Navbar right aligned
on smaller screens

4. You can also switch navbar-brand to the right by placing it below the toggler button.

<nav class="navbar navbar-expand-lg navbar-light" style="background-color: #a4fafa;">
  <button class="navbar-toggler" type="button" data-toggle="collapse" data-target="#navbarNav" aria-controls="navbarNav" aria-expanded="false" aria-label="Toggle navigation">
    <span class="navbar-toggler-icon"></span>
  </button>
  <a class="navbar-brand" href="#">Navbar</a>
  <div class="collapse navbar-collapse" id="navbarNav">

Adjust the padding.

.navbar .navbar-nav .nav-link {
  padding-right: 1em;
}

Output:

Bootstrap Navbar right aligned
on smaller screens
