Header and Navbar

Easily fit in with other U of S websites by following some basic header conventions. Use any combination that suits your needs.

Masthead only

This is a basic header with only a masthead.

Do not remove U of S crest

The U of S crest is an important signifier to users that they are on a U of S website. Do not remove the crest without first consulting Marketing and Communications.

Add a parent site

If your site is a child of a parent site, add a .uofs-header-sitename-parent link.

Masthead and Navbar

This header contains a Navbar with off-canvas functionality for mobile.

Masthead, Search, Navbar

This header contains a search box, too.

Extra Masthead items

Move items from the navbar to the masthead on larger screens, like a user dropdown menu or sign-in link. Add .uofs-header-nav to a separate .navbar-nav list.

Place form content within .navbar-form for proper vertical alignment and collapsed behavior in narrow viewports. Use the alignment options to decide where it resides within the navbar content.

As a heads up, .navbar-form shares much of its code with .form-inline via mixin.

Always add labels

Screen readers will have trouble with your forms if you don't include a label for every input. For these inline navbar forms, you can hide the labels using the .sr-only class.

Add the .navbar-btn class to <button> elements not residing in a <form> to vertically center them in the navbar.

Context-specific usage

Like the standard button classes, .navbar-btn can be used on <a> and <input> elements. However, neither .navbar-btn nor the standard button classes should be used on <a> elements within .navbar-nav.

Wrap strings of text in an element with .navbar-text, usually on a <p> tag for proper leading and color.

Align nav links, forms, buttons, or text, using the .navbar-left or .navbar-right utility classes. Both classes will add a CSS float in the specified direction. For example, to align nav links, put them in a separate <ul> with the respective utility class applied.

Button Groups

Group a series of buttons together on a single line with the button group. Add on optional JavaScript radio and checkbox style behavior with our buttons plugin.

Tooltips & popovers in button groups require special setting

When using tooltips or popovers on elements within a .btn-group, you'll have to specify the option container: 'body' to avoid unwanted side effects (such as the element growing wider and/or losing its rounded corners when the tooltip or popover is triggered).

Basic example

Wrap a series of buttons with .btn in .btn-group.

<div class="btn-group">
  <button type="button" class="btn btn-default">Left</button>
  <button type="button" class="btn btn-default">Middle</button>
  <button type="button" class="btn btn-default">Right</button>
</div>

Button toolbar

Combine sets of <div class="btn-group"> into a <div class="btn-toolbar"> for more complex components.

<div class="btn-toolbar" role="toolbar">
  <div class="btn-group">...</div>
  <div class="btn-group">...</div>
  <div class="btn-group">...</div>
</div>

Sizing

Instead of applying button sizing classes to every button in a group, just add .btn-group-* to the .btn-group.

<div class="btn-group btn-group-lg">...</div>
<div class="btn-group">...</div>
<div class="btn-group btn-group-sm">...</div>
<div class="btn-group btn-group-xs">...</div>

Nesting

Place a .btn-group within another .btn-group when you want dropdown menus mixed with a series of buttons.

<div class="btn-group">
  <button type="button" class="btn btn-default">1</button>
  <button type="button" class="btn btn-default">2</button>

  <div class="btn-group">
    <button type="button" class="btn btn-default dropdown-toggle" data-toggle="dropdown">
      Dropdown
      <span class="caret"></span>
    </button>
    <ul class="dropdown-menu">
      <li><a href="#">Dropdown link</a></li>
      <li><a href="#">Dropdown link</a></li>
    </ul>
  </div>
</div>

Vertical variation

Make a set of buttons appear vertically stacked rather than horizontally.

<div class="btn-group-vertical">
  ...
</div>

Justified link variation

Make a group of buttons stretch at the same size to span the entire width of its parent. Also works with button dropdowns within the button group.

Element-specific usage

This only works with <a> elements as the <button> doesn't pick up the styles we use to justify content (some display: table-cell;).

<div class="btn-group btn-group-justified">
  ...
</div>

Button Dropdowns

Use any button to trigger a dropdown menu by placing it within a .btn-group and providing the proper menu markup.

Single button dropdowns

Turn a button into a dropdown toggle with some basic markup changes.

<!-- Single button -->
<div class="btn-group">
  <button type="button" class="btn btn-default dropdown-toggle" data-toggle="dropdown">
    Action <span class="caret"></span>
  </button>
  <ul class="dropdown-menu" role="menu">
    <li><a href="#">Action</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Another action</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Something else here</a></li>
    <li class="divider"></li>
    <li><a href="#">Separated link</a></li>
  </ul>
</div>

Split button dropdowns

Similarly, create split button dropdowns with the same markup changes, only with a separate button.

<!-- Split button -->
<div class="btn-group">
  <button type="button" class="btn btn-danger">Action</button>
  <button type="button" class="btn btn-danger dropdown-toggle" data-toggle="dropdown">
    <span class="caret"></span>
    <span class="sr-only">Toggle Dropdown</span>
  </button>
  <ul class="dropdown-menu" role="menu">
    <li><a href="#">Action</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Another action</a></li>
    <li><a href="#">Something else here</a></li>
    <li class="divider"></li>
    <li><a href="#">Separated link</a></li>
  </ul>
</div>

Sizing

Button dropdowns work with buttons of all sizes.

<!-- Large button group -->
<div class="btn-group">
  <button class="btn btn-default btn-lg dropdown-toggle" type="button" data-toggle="dropdown">
    Large button <span class="caret"></span>
  </button>
  <ul class="dropdown-menu">
    ...
  </ul>
</div>

<!-- Small button group -->
<div class="btn-group">
  <button class="btn btn-default btn-sm dropdown-toggle" type="button" data-toggle="dropdown">
    Small button <span class="caret"></span>
  </button>
  <ul class="dropdown-menu">
    ...
  </ul>
</div>

<!-- Extra small button group -->
<div class="btn-group">
  <button class="btn btn-default btn-xs dropdown-toggle" type="button" data-toggle="dropdown">
    Extra small button <span class="caret"></span>
  </button>
  <ul class="dropdown-menu">
    ...
  </ul>
</div>

Dropup variation

Trigger dropdown menus above elements by adding .dropup to the parent.

<div class="btn-group dropup">
  <button type="button" class="btn btn-default">Dropup</button>
  <button type="button" class="btn btn-default dropdown-toggle" data-toggle="dropdown">
    <span class="caret"></span>
    <span class="sr-only">Toggle Dropdown</span>
  </button>
  <ul class="dropdown-menu">
    <!-- Dropdown menu links -->
  </ul>
</div>

Input Groups

Extend form controls by adding text or buttons before, after, or on both sides of any text-based input. Use .input-group with an .input-group-addon to prepend or append elements to a .form-control.

Cross-browser compatibility

Avoid using <select> elements here as they cannot be fully styled in WebKit browsers.

Tooltips & popovers in input groups require special setting

When using tooltips or popovers on elements within an .input-group, you'll have to specify the option container: 'body' to avoid unwanted side effects (such as the element growing wider and/or losing its rounded corners when the tooltip or popover is triggered).

Don't mix with form groups

Do not apply input group classes directly to form groups. An input group is an isolated component.

Basic example

@

.00

$ .00
<div class="input-group">
  <span class="input-group-addon">@</span>
  <input type="text" class="form-control" placeholder="Username">
</div>

<div class="input-group">
  <input type="text" class="form-control">
  <span class="input-group-addon">.00</span>
</div>

<div class="input-group">
  <span class="input-group-addon">$</span>
  <input type="text" class="form-control">
  <span class="input-group-addon">.00</span>
</div>

Sizing

Add the relative form sizing classes to the .input-group itself and contents within will automatically resize—no need for repeating the form control size classes on each element.

@

@

@
<div class="input-group input-group-lg">
  <span class="input-group-addon">@</span>
  <input type="text" class="form-control" placeholder="Username">
</div>

<div class="input-group">
  <span class="input-group-addon">@</span>
  <input type="text" class="form-control" placeholder="Username">
</div>

<div class="input-group input-group-sm">
  <span class="input-group-addon">@</span>
  <input type="text" class="form-control" placeholder="Username">
</div>

Checkboxes and radio addons

Place any checkbox or radio option within an input group's addon instead of text.

<div class="row">
  <div class="col-lg-6">
    <div class="input-group">
      <span class="input-group-addon">
        <input type="checkbox">
      </span>
      <input type="text" class="form-control">
    </div><!-- /input-group -->
  </div><!-- /.col-lg-6 -->
  <div class="col-lg-6">
    <div class="input-group">
      <span class="input-group-addon">
        <input type="radio">
      </span>
      <input type="text" class="form-control">
    </div><!-- /input-group -->
  </div><!-- /.col-lg-6 -->
</div><!-- /.row -->

Button addons

Buttons in input groups are a bit different and require one extra level of nesting. Instead of .input-group-addon, you'll need to use .input-group-btn to wrap the buttons. This is required due to default browser styles that cannot be overridden.

<div class="row">
  <div class="col-lg-6">
    <div class="input-group">
      <span class="input-group-btn">
        <button class="btn btn-default" type="button">Go!</button>
      </span>
      <input type="text" class="form-control">
    </div><!-- /input-group -->
  </div><!-- /.col-lg-6 -->
  <div class="col-lg-6">
    <div class="input-group">
      <input type="text" class="form-control">
      <span class="input-group-btn">
        <button class="btn btn-default" type="button">Go!</button>
      </span>
    </div><!-- /input-group -->
  </div><!-- /.col-lg-6 -->
</div><!-- /.row -->

Buttons with dropdowns

<div class="row">
  <div class="col-lg-6">
    <div class="input-group">
      <div class="input-group-btn">
        <button type="button" class="btn btn-default dropdown-toggle" data-toggle="dropdown">Action <span class="caret"></span></button>
        <ul class="dropdown-menu">
          <li><a href="#">Action</a></li>
          <li><a href="#">Another action</a></li>
          <li><a href="#">Something else here</a></li>
          <li class="divider"></li>
          <li><a href="#">Separated link</a></li>
        </ul>
      </div><!-- /btn-group -->
      <input type="text" class="form-control">
    </div><!-- /input-group -->
  </div><!-- /.col-lg-6 -->
  <div class="col-lg-6">
    <div class="input-group">
      <input type="text" class="form-control">
      <div class="input-group-btn">
        <button type="button" class="btn btn-default dropdown-toggle" data-toggle="dropdown">Action <span class="caret"></span></button>
        <ul class="dropdown-menu pull-right">
          <li><a href="#">Action</a></li>
          <li><a href="#">Another action</a></li>

        </ul>
      </div><!-- /btn-group -->
    </div><!-- /input-group -->
  </div><!-- /.col-lg-6 -->

Labels

Example

Example heading New

<h3>Example heading <span class="label label-default">New</span></h3>

Available variations

Add any of the below mentioned modifier classes to change the appearance of a label.

Default Primary Success Info Warning Danger
<span class="label label-default">Default</span>
<span class="label label-primary">Primary</span>
<span class="label label-success">Success</span>
<span class="label label-info">Info</span>
<span class="label label-warning">Warning</span>
<span class="label label-danger">Danger</span>

Badges

Easily highlight new or unread items by adding a <span class="badge"> to links, Limestone navs, and more.

<a href="#">Inbox <span class="badge">42</span></a>

Self collapsing

When there are no new or unread items, badges will simply collapse (via CSS's :empty selector) provided no content exists within.

Cross-browser compatibility

Badges won't self collapse in Internet Explorer 8 because it lacks support for the :empty selector.

Adapts to active nav states

Built-in styles are included for placing badges in active states in pill and list navigations.

<ul class="nav nav-pills nav-stacked">
  <li class="active">
    <a href="#">
      <span class="badge pull-right">42</span>
      Home
    </a>
  </li>
  ...
</ul>

Jumbotrons

<div class="jumbotron">
  <div class="container-fluid">
    <h1>Hello, world!</h1>
    <p>...</p>
    <p><a class="btn btn-primary btn-lg" role="button">Learn more</a></p>
  </div>
</div>

Variations

Grey jumbotrons use a subtle grey texture from the University's visual identity.

<div class="jumbotron uofs-jumbotron-grey">
  ...
</div>

Alerts

Provide contextual feedback messages for typical user actions with the handful of available and flexible alert messages. For inline dismissal, use the alerts plugin.

Examples

Wrap any text and an optional dismiss button in .alert and one of the four contextual classes (e.g., .alert-success) for basic alert messages.

No default class

Alerts don't have default classes, only base and modifier classes. A default gray alert doesn't make too much sense, so you're required to specify a type via contextual class. Choose from success, info, warning, or danger.

Well done! You successfully read this important alert message.
Heads up! This alert needs your attention, but it's not super important.
Warning! Best check yo self, you're not looking too good.
Oh snap! Change a few things up and try submitting again.
<div class="alert alert-success">...</div>
<div class="alert alert-info">...</div>
<div class="alert alert-warning">...</div>
<div class="alert alert-danger">...</div>

Dismissable alerts

Build on any alert by adding an optional .alert-dismissable and close button.

Warning! Best check yo self, you're not looking too good.
<div class="alert alert-warning alert-dismissable">
  <button type="button" class="close" data-dismiss="alert" aria-hidden="true">&times;</button>
  <strong>Warning!</strong> Best check yo self, you're not looking too good.
</div>

Ensure proper behavior across all devices

Be sure to use the <button> element with the data-dismiss="alert" data attribute.

Use the .alert-link utility class to quickly provide matching colored links within any alert.

Well done! You successfully read this important alert message.
Heads up! This alert needs your attention, but it's not super important.
Warning! Best check yo self, you're not looking too good.
Oh snap! Change a few things up and try submitting again.
<div class="alert alert-success">
  <a href="#" class="alert-link">...</a>
</div>
<div class="alert alert-info">
  <a href="#" class="alert-link">...</a>
</div>
<div class="alert alert-warning">
  <a href="#" class="alert-link">...</a>
</div>
<div class="alert alert-danger">
  <a href="#" class="alert-link">...</a>
</div>

Media Object

Abstract object styles for building various types of components (like blog comments, Tweets, etc) that feature a left- or right-aligned image alongside textual content.

Default media

The default media allow to float a media object (images, video, audio) to the left or right of a content block.

List Group

List groups are a flexible and powerful component for displaying not only simple lists of elements, but complex ones with custom content.

Basic example

The most basic list group is simply an unordered list with list items, and the proper classes. Build upon it with the options that follow, or your own CSS as needed.

  • Cras justo odio
  • Dapibus ac facilisis in
  • Morbi leo risus
  • Porta ac consectetur ac
  • Vestibulum at eros
<ul class="list-group">
  <li class="list-group-item">Cras justo odio</li>
  <li class="list-group-item">Dapibus ac facilisis in</li>
  <li class="list-group-item">Morbi leo risus</li>
  <li class="list-group-item">Porta ac consectetur ac</li>
  <li class="list-group-item">Vestibulum at eros</li>
</ul>

Badges

Add the badges component to any list group item and it will automatically be positioned on the right.

  • 14 Cras justo odio
  • 2 Dapibus ac facilisis in
  • 1 Morbi leo risus
<ul class="list-group">
  <li class="list-group-item">
    <span class="badge">14</span>
    Cras justo odio
  </li>
</ul>

Linked items

Linkify list group items by using anchor tags instead of list items (that also means a parent <div> instead of an <ul>). No need for individual parents around each element.

<div class="list-group">
  <a href="#" class="list-group-item active">
    Cras justo odio
  </a>
  <a href="#" class="list-group-item">Dapibus ac facilisis in</a>
  <a href="#" class="list-group-item">Morbi leo risus</a>
  <a href="#" class="list-group-item">Porta ac consectetur ac</a>
  <a href="#" class="list-group-item">Vestibulum at eros</a>
</div>

Custom content

Add nearly any HTML within, even for linked list groups like the one below.

<div class="list-group">
  <a href="#" class="list-group-item active">
    <h4 class="list-group-item-heading">List group item heading</h4>
    <p class="list-group-item-text">...</p>
  </a>
</div>

Panels

While not always necessary, sometimes you need to put your DOM in a box. For those situations, try the panel component.

Basic example

By default, all the .panel does is apply some basic border and padding to contain some content.

Basic panel example
<div class="panel panel-default">
  <div class="panel-body">
    Basic panel example
  </div>
</div>

Panel with heading

Easily add a heading container to your panel with .panel-heading. You may also include any <h1>-<h6> with a .panel-title class to add a pre-styled heading.

Panel heading without title
Panel content

Panel title

Panel content
<div class="panel panel-default">
  <div class="panel-heading">Panel heading without title</div>
  <div class="panel-body">
    Panel content
  </div>
</div>

<div class="panel panel-default">
  <div class="panel-heading">
    <h3 class="panel-title">Panel title</h3>
  </div>
  <div class="panel-body">
    Panel content
  </div>
</div>

Wrap buttons or secondary text in .panel-footer. Note that panel footers do not inherit colors and borders when using contextual variations as they are not meant to be in the foreground.

Panel content
<div class="panel panel-default">
  <div class="panel-body">
    Panel content
  </div>
  <div class="panel-footer">Panel footer</div>
</div>

Contextual alternatives

Like other components, easily make a panel more meaningful to a particular context by adding any of the contextual state classes.

<div class="panel panel-success">...</div>
<div class="panel panel-info">...</div>
<div class="panel panel-warning">...</div>
<div class="panel panel-danger">...</div>

With tables

Add any non-bordered .table within a panel for a seamless design. If there is a .panel-body, we add an extra border to the top of the table for separation.

Panel heading

Some default panel content here. Nulla vitae elit libero, a pharetra augue. Aenean lacinia bibendum nulla sed consectetur. Aenean eu leo quam. Pellentesque ornare sem lacinia quam venenatis vestibulum. Nullam id dolor id nibh ultricies vehicula ut id elit.

# First Name Last Name Username

<div class="panel panel-default">
  <!-- Default panel contents -->
  <div class="panel-heading">Panel heading</div>
  <div class="panel-body">
    <p>...</p>
  </div>

  <!-- Table -->
  <table class="table">
    ...
  </table>
</div>

If there is no panel body, the component moves from panel header to table without interruption.

With list groups

Easily include full-width list groups within any panel.

  • Cras justo odio
  • Dapibus ac facilisis in
  • Morbi leo risus
  • Porta ac consectetur ac
  • Vestibulum at eros
<div class="panel panel-default">
