[css] Bootstrap 4 - Inline List?

I migrated a site from Bootstrap 4 alpha 6 to Bootstrap 4 Beta 1.

<ul class="nav navbar-nav list-inline">
  <li class="list-inline-item"><a class="social-icon text-xs-center" target="_blank" href="#">FB</a></li>
  <li class="list-inline-item"><a class="social-icon text-xs-center" target="_blank" href="#">G+</a></li>
  <li class="list-inline-item"><a class="social-icon text-xs-center" target="_blank" href="#">T</li>
</ul>

Now, the items align vertically instead of horizontally. How do I create an inline list with the Bootstrap 4 beta?

This question is related to css twitter-bootstrap

Shouldn't it be just the .list-group? See below,

<ul class="list-group">
  <li class="list-group-item active">Cras justo odio</li>
  <li class="list-group-item">Dapibus ac facilisis in</li>
  <li class="list-group-item">Morbi leo risus</li>
  <li class="list-group-item">Porta ac consectetur ac</li>
  <li class="list-group-item">Vestibulum at eros</li>
</ul>

Reference: Bootstrap 4 Basic Example of a List group


.list-inline class in bootstrap is a Inline Unordered List.

If you want to create a horizontal menu using ordered or unordered list you need to place all list items in a single line i.e. side by side. You can do this by simply applying the class

<div class="list-inline">
    <a href="#" class="list-inline-item">First item</a>
    <a href="#" class="list-inline-item">Secound item</a>
    <a href="#" class="list-inline-item">Third item</a>
  </div>

The html code you written is absolutely perfect

<ul class="nav navbar-nav list-inline">
 <li class="list-inline-item">FB</li>
 <li class="list-inline-item">G+</li>
 <li class="list-inline-item">T</li>
 </ul>

The reasons that could be possible is
1. Check out the CSS for class name "nav" or "navbar-nav" may be over writing it, try to remove and debug the class names in the ul element.
2. Check any of the child element(a tag or "social-icon" class) is using block level CSS style
3. Check out your using a HTML5 !DOCTYPE html
4. Place your bootstrap.css link at the last before closing your head tag
5. Change text-xs-center to text-center because xs is dropped in Bootstrap 4.

This One will work perfectly fine

<!-- Use this inside Head tag-->
<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/4.0.0-beta.2/css/bootstrap.min.css">
<script src="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/4.0.0-beta.2/js/bootstrap.min.js"></script>



<!-- Use this inside Body tag-->
<div  class="container">
<ul class="list-inline">
<li class="list-inline-item"><a class="social-icon text-center" target="_blank" href="#">FB</a></li>
<li class="list-inline-item"><a class="social-icon text-center" target="_blank" href="#">G+</a></li>
<li class="list-inline-item"><a class="social-icon text-center" target="_blank" href="#">T</a></li>
</ul>
</div>

Bootstrap4

Remove a list’s bullets and apply some light margin with a combination of two classes, .list-inline and .list-inline-item.

<ul class="list-inline">
   <li class="list-inline-item"><a class="social-icon text-xs-center" target="_blank" href="#">FB</a></li>
   <li class="list-inline-item"><a class="social-icon text-xs-center" target="_blank" href="#">G+</a></li>
   <li class="list-inline-item"><a class="social-icon text-xs-center" target="_blank" href="#">T</a></li>
</ul>
