Portfolio Project: trouble with Bootstrap 4 linking navbar buttons

Portfolio Project: trouble with Bootstrap 4 linking navbar buttons
0

#1

I have included my code below. I can’t seem to get my navbar buttons to link to the “about, portfolio, and contact” sections of my page. I am using anchors and ids but no luck. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Also I am working in Sublime Text 3 if that matters.

I would also appreciate a little help getting my bottom div to sit flush on the bottom. There seems to be a 5-10 pixel gap preventing it from sitting flush. I have tried padding-bottom: 0px and margin-bottom: 0px on body and the div with no luck.

I don’t know if you just updated the page, but the links are working for me. They take me to each section of your page.

As for the gap at the bottom I noticed it’s being caused by the copyright p tag in your footer. Just add margin-bottom: 0px; to your #footer style. Should fix it right up. :+1:

Thanks for the tips! Yeah, I had already found a solution to the link situation. The footer trick worked. Thanks a lot for pointing that out.
