Adding Bootstrap to my webpage.

Hello, I am attempting to add Bootstrap to my webpage to utilize some of its functions; however, when I link to it in the head section of the webpage, it "overrides" all the CSS I wrote. I am not sure what I am doing wrong or how to fix this.

Hi there!

You can re-arrange the order that you call the stylesheets in order to help with this. If your stylesheet is loaded before the Bootstrap stylesheet, the browser will load the Bootstrap styles over your own styles (Cascading Style Sheets).

Try re-arranging them so that your stylesheet loads after the Bootstrap one to see if that helps.

Hi Bryan,

Thank you so much! That seemed to do the trick :)
