I'm very new to HTML and coding but I'm trying to out a basic bootstrap carousel on my website. When I do it moves everything around and the next/previous buttons are also not where they are supposed to be. Any help would be appreciated

Answer

Override the below bootstrap classes in your <style>

.carousel-control .glyphicon-chevron-right, .carousel-control .icon-next {margin-right: 200px}
.carousel-control .glyphicon-chevron-left, .carousel-control .icon-prev {margin-left: 200px}
.carousel-control {width :0%;}

The first two classes will push the next and prev arrows inline. The third class will remove the excess white space of the carousel.

Hope this helps.
