How do you decrease navbar height in Bootstrap 3?

I want to make my navbar in BS3 to be of height 20px. How do I do this?

I've tried the following:

.tnav .navbar .container { height: 28px; }


Did nothing.

.navbar-fixed-top {
height: 25px; /* Whatever you want. */
}


Appears to be able to increase the size of the bar, but cannot decrease.

What is a good way to do this while preserving the container's alignment, etc.

Answer Source

bootstrap had 15px top padding and 15px bottom padding on .navbar-nav > li > a so you need to decrease it by overriding it in your css file and .navbar has min-height:50px; decrease it as much you want.

for example

.navbar-nav > li > a {padding-top:5px !important; padding-bottom:5px !important;}
.navbar {min-height:32px !important}

add these classes to your css and then check.
