Twitter Bootstrap not being included in project files version of code


I downloaded the project files code in Stage 4, and encountered an issue where my webpages had no styling whatsoever. When I inspect page element, I notice that the <head> tag isn't including anything other than the application.css and application.js files, omitting the twitter bootstrap styles that are also within the assets directory.

I know this problem was encountered several other times, and people suggested using a "rake assets:clean" to fix the error, however this wasn't working for me. I was wondering if anyone had any explanation for why this might not work for me, or any other suggestions that could get styling back into the page?

Sorry, it has been 10 days so not sure if this is still a problem or not.

Double check to make sure the bootstrap javascript file is in your app/assets/javascripts folder and also that the application.js in there includes the following line:

//= require_tree .

If that doesn't help can you provide a link to your repository?
