Hi Andrew,

I see that you posted this 2 days ago but I only just got the notification for it. :)

Since we;re working with Bootstrap, the code for what you want is probably in the documentation already.

I'd start by looking for navigation elements in the Bootstrap documentation, specifically your "navbar-toggle" class and see if you can find the data attribute there. Working with Bootstrap is kind of like putting together a jigsaw puzzle. :)

There is no nav bar toggle in the documentation I've been playing around with "dropdown-toggle" data-toggle="dropdown" it does not work
