3. Table Styles

Basic example

For basic styling—light padding and only horizontal dividers—add the base class .table to any <table>. It may seem super redundant, but given the widespread use of tables for other plugins like calendars and date pickers, we've opted to isolate our custom table styles.

Optional table caption.
#First NameLast NameUsername
1 Mark Otto @mdo
2 Jacob Thornton @fat
3 Larry the Bird @twitter
<table class="table">
  ...
</table>

Striped rows

Use .table-striped to add zebra-striping to any table row within the <tbody>.

Cross-browser compatibility

Striped tables are styled via the :nth-child CSS selector, which is not available in Internet Explorer 8.

#First NameLast NameUsername
1 Mark Otto @mdo
2 Jacob Thornton @fat
3 Larry the Bird @twitter
<table class="table table-striped">
  ...
</table>

Bordered table

Add .table-bordered for borders on all sides of the table and cells.

#First NameLast NameUsername
1 Mark Otto @mdo
2 Jacob Thornton @fat
3 Larry the Bird @twitter
<table class="table table-bordered">
  ...
</table>

Hover rows

Add .table-hover to enable a hover state on table rows within a <tbody>.

#First NameLast NameUsername
1 Mark Otto @mdo
2 Jacob Thornton @fat
3 Larry the Bird @twitter
<table class="table table-hover">
  ...
</table>

Condensed table

Add .table-condensed to make tables more compact by cutting cell padding in half.

#First NameLast NameUsername
1 Mark Otto @mdo
2 Jacob Thornton @fat
3 Larry the Bird @twitter
<table class="table table-condensed">
  ...
</table>

Contextual classes

Use contextual classes to color table rows or individual cells.

ClassDescription
.active Applies the hover color to a particular row or cell
.success Indicates a successful or positive action
.info Indicates a neutral informative change or action
.warning Indicates a warning that might need attention
.danger Indicates a dangerous or potentially negative action
#Column headingColumn headingColumn heading

<!-- On rows -->

<!-- On cells (`td` or `th`) -->
<tr>
  <td class="active">...</td>
  <td class="success">...</td>
  <td class="warning">...</td>
  <td class="danger">...</td>
  <td class="info">...</td>
</tr>
Responsive tables

Create responsive tables by wrapping any .table in .table-responsive to make them scroll horizontally on small devices (under 768px). When viewing on anything larger than 768px wide, you will not see any difference in these tables.

Vertical clipping/truncation

Responsive tables make use of overflow-y: hidden, which clips off any content that goes beyond the bottom or top edges of the table. In particular, this can clip off dropdown menus and other third-party widgets.

Firefox and fieldsets

Firefox has some awkward fieldset styling involving width that interferes with the responsive table. This cannot be overriden without a Firefox-specific hack that we don't provide in OSP Real Homes:

@-moz-document url-prefix() {
  fieldset { display: table-cell; }
}
#Table headingTable headingTable headingTable headingTable headingTable heading
1 Table cell Table cell Table cell Table cell Table cell Table cell
2 Table cell Table cell Table cell Table cell Table cell Table cell
3 Table cell Table cell Table cell Table cell Table cell Table cell

3 Table cell Table cell Table cell Table cell Table cell Table cell
<div class="table-responsive">
  <table class="table">
    ...
  </table>
</div>

 

4. Lists

Unordered

A list of items in which the order does not explicitly matter.

5. Buttons

Use any of the available button classes to quickly create a styled button.

 
<!-- Standard button -->
<button type="button" class="btn btn-default">Default</button>

<!-- Provides extra visual weight and identifies the primary action in a set of buttons -->
<button type="button" class="btn btn-primary">Primary</button>

<!-- Indicates a successful or positive action -->
<button type="button" class="btn btn-success">Success</button>

<!-- Contextual button for informational alert messages -->
<button type="button" class="btn btn-info">Info</button>

<!-- Indicates caution should be taken with this action -->
<button type="button" class="btn btn-warning">Warning</button>

<!-- Indicates a dangerous or potentially negative action -->
<button type="button" class="btn btn-danger">Danger</button>

<!-- Deemphasize a button by making it look like a link while maintaining button behavior -->
<button type="button" class="btn btn-link">Link</button>

6. Labels

Add any of the below mentioned modifier classes to change the appearance of a label.

Default Primary Success Info Warning Danger
 
<span class="label label-default">Default</span>
<span class="label label-primary">Primary</span>
<span class="label label-success">Success</span>
<span class="label label-info">Info</span>
<span class="label label-warning">Warning</span>
<span class="label label-danger">Danger</span>

Easily highlight new or unread items by adding a <span class="badge"> to links, navs, and more.

Inbox 42

 
<a href="#">Inbox <span class="badge">42</span></a>

<button class="btn btn-primary" type="button">
  Messages <span class="badge">4</span>
</button>
Self collapsing

When there are no new or unread items, badges will simply collapse (via CSS's :empty selector) provided no content exists within.

Cross-browser compatibility

Badges won't self collapse in Internet Explorer 8 because it lacks support for the :empty selector.

Adapts to active nav states

Built-in styles are included for placing badges in active states in pill navigations.

<ul class="nav nav-pills" role="tablist">
  <li role="presentation" class="active"><a href="#">Home <span class="badge">42</span></a></li>
  <li role="presentation"><a href="#">Profile</a></li>
  <li role="presentation"><a href="#">Messages <span class="badge">3</span></a></li>
</ul>

Why take part

  • It is necessary to have our own story

    You might have heard different versions of a single story about the Raizal People. That such a single story continues to rob the Raizal People of its true history, identity and dignity. 

    In order to recover all those, we are here retelling our story... our own story, and overcome the danger of having just a single story (other one story).

  • None but ourselves can free our minds (emancipate yourselves...)

    Emancipates yourselves from mental slavery.

    "...The issue of whose minds are colonized is a delicate one. We all know people whose minds have been colonized. Who are they? They are other people -- people out there. They are somebody else. Not us.

    It's time we did the unthinkable and asked ourselves if we have been colonize..." (Jane Anne Morris)

  • We need to really understand the right to self-determination

    A massive, in-depth teaching and practical exercise of those and other rights are needed. Self-determination and development are essentially collective human rights, and their implementation calls for the understanding (consciousness) and empowerment of the people as an all, not only of some.
