Help with Navigation link icons on header while resizing screen

Help with Navigation link icons on header while resizing screen
0

Hi,
So this is my website’s header. Screenshot%20from%202019-06-15%2002-39-27

What I’m trying to achieve is:

  1. On smaller screens, my navigation-link text disappear and the icons stay visible
  2. On larger screens, my navigation- link text stays visible and the icons are invisible.
    I tried a few things and can’t seem to figure it out.

Here’s part of my code:
HTML

<header> 
    <div id="header-div">
    <img src="https://vector.jpg" id="header-img"> <h1 id="brand-title">Shake-it-Off</h1>
     <div id="rightheader">
      <nav id="nav-bar">
      <ul>
        <li><a href="#highlights" id="hl" class="nav-link">Highlights <i class="material-icons">
home</i></a></li>
        <li><a href="#about" id="abt" class="nav-link">About<i class="material-icons">
location_city</i></a></li>
        <li><a href="#promotions" id="md" class="nav-link">Promotions<i class="material-icons">
whatshot</i></a></li>
      </ul>
    </nav> 
    </div>
    </div>
  </header>

CSS

.material-icons{
    display:none;
  }
@media(max-width:512px){
header .nav-link{
    display:none;
  }
  
.nav-link + .material-icons{
  display:block;
  }
}

Can you put your code on Codepen or jsFiddle or codesandbox.io? It will make it easier for others to test out possible solutions and respond.

One option would be to wrap the link text in a span and hide it.

<nav id="nav-bar">
  <ul>
    <li>
      <a href="#highlights" id="hl" class="nav-link">
        <span>Highlights</span>
        <i class="material-icons">home</i>
      </a>
    </li>
    <li>
      <a href="#about" id="abt" class="nav-link">
        <span>About</span>
        <i class="material-icons">location_city</i>
      </a>
    </li>
    <li>
      <a href="#promotions" id="md" class="nav-link">
        <span>Promotions</span>
        <i class="material-icons">whatshot</i>
      </a>
    </li>
  </ul>
</nav>
@media (max-width: 512px) {
  header .nav-link > span {
    display:none;
  }
}
