Bootstrap badge circle example

Hi Friends 👋,

Welcome To aGuideHub! ❤️

In this tutorial, we will learn how to create badge circle in Bootstrap.

Badge is a new UI element. It provides users with a visual clue to help them discover additional relevant content. A badge can be both a notifier that there are additional items associated with an object and an indicator of how many items there are.

Table of contents

  • Includes bootstrap view
  • Includes bootstrap library
  • Define its class name

Badges are numerical indicators of how many items are associated with a link:

The numbers (5, 10, and 2) are the badges.

Use the .badge class within <span> elements to create badges:

This article will guide you to adding badge circle in Bootstrap with example.

Step 1: Includes bootstrap view

To ensure proper rendering and touch zooming for all devices, add the responsive viewport meta tag to your <head>.

<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">

Step 2: Includes bootstrap library

First of all, load the Bootstrap framework CSS into the head tag of your webpage.

  <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.4.1/css/bootstrap.min.css">
  <script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.6.0/jquery.min.js"></script>
  <script src="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.4.1/js/bootstrap.min.js"></script>

Step 3: Define its class name

After that, create the badge circle with a class name badge.

<div class="container">
  <h2>Badges</h2>
  <a href="#">News <span class="badge">5</span></a><br>
  <a href="#">Comments <span class="badge">10</span></a><br>
  <a href="#">Updates <span class="badge">2</span></a>
</div>

Example.

Let’s look at the following example to understand how it basically works:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
  <title>Bootstrap Example</title>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.4.1/css/bootstrap.min.css">
  <script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.6.0/jquery.min.js"></script>
  <script src="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.4.1/js/bootstrap.min.js"></script>
</head>
<body>

<div class="container">
  <h2>Badges</h2>
  <a href="#">News <span class="badge">5</span></a><br>
  <a href="#">Comments <span class="badge">10</span></a><br>
  <a href="#">Updates <span class="badge">2</span></a>
</div>

</body>
</html>
