what is navbar default? it's not in the navbar documentation.

Navbar default is mentioned in the video, but not in the documentation. If I want to override the hover link background color, should I use something else?

Navbar-default is a Bootstrap class used to style the provided Navbar. To override Bootstrap styles, you would link your custom style sheet after the Bootstrap stylesheet like:

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="Bootstrap style sheet">
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="Custom style sheet">

Without knowing which video you watched, this is the only explanation I have for what the "navbar-default" could be.
