How would I develop a navbar with the logo in the center?

<header role="banner"> <nav id="navbar-primary" class="navbar" role="navigation"> <div class="container-fluid"> <!-- Brand and toggle get grouped for better mobile display --> <div class="navbar-header"> <button type="button" class="navbar-toggle" data-toggle="collapse" data-target="#navbar-primary-collapse"> <span class="sr-only">Toggle navigation</span> <span class="icon-bar"></span> <span class="icon-bar"></span> <span class="icon-bar"></span> </button> </div> <div class="collapse navbar-collapse" id="navbar-primary-collapse"> <ul class="nav navbar-nav"> <li class="active"><a href="#">Link</a></li> <li><a href="#">Link</a></li> <li><a href="#"><img id="logo-navbar-middle" src="https://s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/s.cdpn.io/32877/logo-thing.png" width="200" alt="Logo Thing main logo"></a></li> <li><a href="#">Link</a></li> <li><a href="#">Link</a></li> </ul> </div><!-- /.navbar-collapse --> </div><!-- /.container-fluid --> </nav> </header><!-- header role="banner" -->

navbar-primary .navbar-nav {

background: #ededed; width: 100%; text-align: center;

li { display: inline-block; float: none; > a { padding-left: 30px; padding-right: 30px; } } }

Remove img.logo-navbar-middle from you unordered list. (Semantically it's not a nav item). Place it somewhere nested in .navbar and set its position to absolute.

You'll have to add a relative position to .navbar for this to work. Adjust the top position by decreasing the top value (set to 50% in my code below) to your liking. I added a transform property with a value of "translateY(-50%)" just in case your navbar does not have fixed height. You can remove this if it has a fixed height.

.navbar {
    position: relative;

img.logo-navbar-middle {
    position: absolute;
    top: 50%;
    margin: 0 auto;
    transform: translateY(-50%);
