Links and buttons don't work on small and extra small screens in bootstrap grid

I have created a view that shows 2 columns on medium and large screens but only 1 column on small and extra small screens. I'm using the push and pull classes from bootstrap to reorder my panels at different screen sizes.

My problem is that on small and extra small screen sizes some of my links and buttons are not clickable.

I have followed this thread Links in bootstrap grid stop working in small screen mode. It says the problem is that the links are floated, resulting in a height of 0 for the parent container.

I have tried using the "clearfix" class. I've also created my own class using overflow:auto and another using overflow:hidden and none of these work.

I have never had this problem before but this is the first time I've used push/pull. Would you take a look at my code and see if you can spot the problem?

Answer

I didn't go through your whole code, but here is what I think is the problem. if for example you have a situation where you need to show different number of columns on different screen sizes with bootstrap, please be specific with all column sizes. Don't let bootstrap guess. here is what I mean: for example you have this code:

<div class="col-lg-2 col-md-3 col-sm-2 col-xs-4">
        <button type='button' 
                class='btn btn-warning no-print' 
                data-toggle='modal' 
                data-target='#myModal{{ $note->id }}'
        >
            <i class="fa fa-pencil-square-o"></i>
        </button>

        <a href='/notes/delete/{{ $note->id }}' 
            class='btn btn-danger no-print' 
            onclick="return confirm('Are you sure you want to delete this note?')"
        ><i class="fa fa-times"></i></a>
    </div>
    <div class="col-lg-2 col-md-3 col-sm-6 col-xs-8">{{ $note->user->name . ' ' . $note->user->last_name }}<br>{{ $note->timestamp->format('n/j/Y') }}</div>
    <div class="col-lg-8 col-md-6 col-sm-12"><pre class="pre-note">{{ $note->note }}</pre></div>

You can see that you have specified the following for extra small screens: "col-xs-4", and "col-xs-8" for the first and second div's respectevely. What about the third div? You have implied that it is "col-xs-12". I am afraid you will have to explicitely say that it is "col-xs-12".

so if you were to change your code to :

<div class="col-lg-2 col-md-3 col-sm-2 col-xs-4">
        <button type='button' 
                class='btn btn-warning no-print' 
                data-toggle='modal' 
                data-target='#myModal{{ $note->id }}'
        >
            <i class="fa fa-pencil-square-o"></i>
        </button>

        <a href='/notes/delete/{{ $note->id }}' 
            class='btn btn-danger no-print' 
            onclick="return confirm('Are you sure you want to delete this note?')"
        ><i class="fa fa-times"></i></a>
    </div>
    <div class="col-lg-2 col-md-3 col-sm-6 col-xs-8">{{ $note->user->name . ' ' . $note->user->last_name }}<br>{{ $note->timestamp->format('n/j/Y') }}</div>
    <div class="col-lg-8 col-md-6 col-sm-12 col-xs-12"><pre class="pre-note">{{ $note->note }}</pre></div>

It is going to work without any problem. Notice the explicit "col-xs-12" for the last div. The problem is on xtra small screens the first and second div's are floated left because they have "col-xs-..." whilst the third div is not floated and ends up causing chaos!

Have fun!!
