Not sure what else it could be looking for.

This did it for me,

 <li><a href="#">About Ribbit</a></li>
        <li class="dropdown">
          <a data-target="#">Treehouse<b class="caret"></b></a>

This code won't work! All you want to do is, add a attribute 'data-toggle' and then set it's value to 'dropdown'.

<a data-toggle="dropdown" data-target="#">Treehouse<b class="caret"></b></a>
