bootstrap collaping navbar prolem

For some reason the collapsing navbar is not working.

I am not including the whole HTML just the beginning till the end of nav

<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <title>Ribbit - A Treehouse Project</title> <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0"> <link href="css/bootstrap.min.css" rel="stylesheet" media="screen"> <link href="css/bootstrap-theme.min.css" rel="stylesheet" media="screen"> <link href="css/my-styles.css" rel="stylesheet" media="screen"> <!-- HTML5 shim and Respond.js IE8 support of HTML5 elements and media queries --> <!--[if lt IE 9]> <script src="../../assets/js/html5shiv.js"></script> <script src="../../assets/js/respond.min.js"></script> <![endif]--> </head> <body>

<!-- Navbar -->

<div class="navbar navbar-inverse navbar-fixed-top"> <div class="container">

    <div class="navbar-header">
    <button type="button" class="navbar-toggle collapsed" data-toggle="collapse" data-target="#collapsible-navbar aria-expanded="false"">
        <span class="icon-bar"></span>
        <span class="icon-bar"></span>
        <span class="icon-bar"></span>

      <a class="navbar-brand text-muted" href="#">Ribbit</a>
    <div class="collapse navbar-collapse">

      <ul class="nav navbar-nav navbar-right">
        <li class="active"><a href="#">Home</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">About Ribbit</a></li>
        <li><a href="#">Treehouse</a></li>

<!-- End Navbar -->

You have mistake with " in here:

data-target="#collapsible-navbar aria-expanded="false""

it should be:

data-target="#collapsible-navbar" aria-expanded="false"

Also the data-target id in missing so it cannot target anything. You should put id="collapsible-navbar".

Check once more the bootstrap documentation http://v4-alpha.getbootstrap.com/components/navbar/#placement because I thing the divs could cause some problems.
