CSS Framework Basics Prototyping with Bootstrap Build a Fixed Navbar

Can't work out how to add data attribute for Bootstrap

'Finally, add the data attribute that toggles the nav once the menu icon is clicked.'

<div class="navbar navbar-inverse navbar-fixed-top">
      <div class="container">
        <button type="button" class="navbar-toggle" data-toggle="collapse" data-target="navbar-collapse">
          <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>

Add data-target=".navbar-collapse" to the button.

data-target is looking for a css selector, but what you are handing is structured more like a tag name.

Such as <div id="foo"/> has a css selector of #foo

I'm sure fixing up the data-target to be written like it was selecting a class would do the trick :)
