Bootstrap 3 - Issue with centering menu bar

I am writing web site using bootstrap 3. I have 2 problems with my code:

  1. I want to have a menu bar with logo centered

  2. After resizing browser window hamburger menu is not expanding

I am slowly giving up. Do you see any solution for this issue?
Here is my code - index.html and CSS file:

For No:1 = (I want to have a menu bar with logo centered)

First put the <div class="Custom">...</div> in a <div class="container">...</div> to make it fit into a body box controlled by bootstrap media queries. Second add <div class="container-fluid"> right after <nav> tag and end it with adding </div> before </nav>. Third add the following class in styles to make it align center and adjust margins etc accordingly.

.navbar .navbar-nav {
  display: inline-block;
  float: none;
  vertical-align: top;
.navbar .navbar-collapse {
  text-align: center;

.Custom .navbar-toggle {
  margin: 10px 0px 0 0;

@media (min-width: 768px) {
  .Custom .nav >li >a {
    padding-top: 30px;
    padding-bottom: 30px;

For No:2 = (After resizing browser window hamburger menu is not expanding)

You are not adding jquery library that is required by bootstrap library and needs to be added before it. So put the following or download the jquery.min.js (version 2.2.4) file and put it's script tag right after the <title>Perm-Records</title>

<script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-2.2.4.min.js"></script>

Hope this helps.
