WordPress From Bootstrap to WordPress Setup a Bootstrap Theme Adding Ability for Dropdown Navigation

why not dynamically + links 2 the nav template using a php arg array? Or change the wp widget css in wp-template

I was curious about a possible solution to manipulate the css for the dropdown links section of the course Roughly(2:50). Currently we have to restyle the menu's css in order to reflect our changes for the dropdown menus. Isn't there a way to manipulate the wp theme and dynamically add the css rules to the dropdown menu in order to run off foundations css?

I've found a custom WordPress function that will do all this work for you. I've found it extremely time saving and effective for my projects. It doesn't support sub-sub-page dropdown menus, but other than that it pretty sweet. Check it out here: https://github.com/twittem/wp-bootstrap-navwalker

I tried using navwalker, but couldn't get it to work with this nav in the course. The links wouldn't show on the navbar

If anyone's trying to do this with Bootstrap4, I've found that this solution worked for me: http://simonpadbury.github.io/2016/03/09/bootstrap-4-navbar-with-dropdowns-for-wordpress.html
