Currently when the browser width drops below 768px, the navbar changes to collapsed mode. I want to change this width to 1000px so when the browser is below 1000px the navbar changes to collapsed mode. I want to do this without using LESS, I am using stylus not LESS.

My issue is the same as in this question: Bootstrap 3 Navbar Collapse

But all the answers in that questions explain how to do it by changing LESS variable. I haven't been dealing with LESS, I am using stylus so I want to know how this can be done using stylus or another method.




You have to write a specific media query for this, from your question, below 768px, the navbar will collapse, so apply it above 768px and below 1000px, just like that:

@media (min-width: 768px) and (max-width: 1000px) {
   .collapse {
       display: none !important;

This will hide the navbar collapse until the default occurrence of the bootstrap unit. As the collapse class flips the inner assets inside navbar collapse will be automatically hidden, like wise you have to set your css as you desired design.

Looks like this is a known issue with Bootstrap ( and possibly also which is very disappointing because it's been open for a long time and never fixed, and the primary reason to use Bootsrtap is its promise of responsive design.

The fix proposed at seems to work, but it is using the Bootstrap source code, so if you are using the minified version and are not using the source scripts it looks differently.

I fixed it in my case in the minified version by adding the substring "disable-" to the touchstart test, therefore disabling this functionality.

To do that in your minified bootstrap.min.js file, find the substring


and replace it with


Thank you @Shmalzy for trying to help.

Bootstrap 5 (update 2021)

Some of the classed have change for Bootstrap 5, but the concept is still the same. Here's an updated Bootstrap 5 sidebar to navbar example

Bootstrap 4 (original answer)

It could be done in Bootstrap 4 using the responsive grid columns. One column for the sidebar and one for the main content.

Bootstrap 4 Sidebar switch to Top Navbar on mobile

<div class="container-fluid h-100">
    <div class="row h-100">
        <aside class="col-12 col-md-2 p-0 bg-dark">
            <nav class="navbar navbar-expand navbar-dark bg-dark flex-md-column flex-row align-items-start">
                <div class="collapse navbar-collapse">
                    <ul class="flex-md-column flex-row navbar-nav w-100 justify-content-between">
                        <li class="nav-item">
                            <a class="nav-link pl-0" href="#">Link</a>
        <main class="col">

Alternate sidebar to top
Fixed sidebar to top

For the reverse (Top Navbar that becomes a Sidebar), can be done like this example

You need to run the check when the page loads as well as when the window is scrolled, you can do that without duplicating any code by putting the logic that checks the offset of the page in a function and running it from both document ready and window scroll.

$(document).ready(function() {

    // Put your offset checking in a function
    function checkOffset() {
        if ($(".navbar").offset().top > 50) {
        else {

    // Run it when the page loads

    // Run function when scrolling
    $(window).scroll(function() {


I believe you could shorten this even more by replace the checkOffset function with the following:

// Put your offset checking in a function
function checkOffset() {
    $(".navbar-fixed-top").toggleClass("top-nav-collapse", $(".navbar").offset().top > 50);

I haven't tested this, but as long as the second parameter in toggleClass returns a boolean it'll either add or remove the class depending on the offset of the page without needing an if statement.

After considering Erik's input, I was playing around to see whether I could customize Bootstrap by only targeting the second navbar, and it seems that I have made it work.

Here is how. I wrapped the second navbar in a div as bellow:

<div id="target">
    <div class="navbar navbar-default" role="navigation">
    </div> <!-- end of  navbar -->

Then I followed what is said in this SO post: Bootstrap 3 Navbar Collapse

Here is my final CSS:

@media (max-width: 991px) {
    #target {

        .navbar-header {
            float: none;
        .navbar-toggle {
            display: block;
        .navbar-collapse {
            border-top: 1px solid transparent;
            box-shadow: inset 0 1px 0 rgba(255,255,255,0.1);
        .navbar-collapse.collapse {
            display: none!important;
        .navbar-nav {
            float: none!important;
            margin: 7.5px -15px;
        .navbar-nav>li {
            float: none;
        .navbar-nav>li>a {
            padding-top: 10px;
            padding-bottom: 10px;
        /* since 3.1.0 */ { 
            display: block!important;
        .collapsing {
            overflow: hidden!important;

So far it seems working. If what I did is wrong, please let me know. If this is right, hope it helps someone else.
