Bootstrap – dropdown menu not working?

Issue

My dropdown menu in Bootstrap doesnt appear to be working – can anyone alert me to the problem? Right now it displays the dropdown, but clicking it does nothing. Thanks!

JS:

$(document).ready( function() {
$('.dropdown-toggle').dropdown();
});

HTML:

<div class="navbar navbar-fixed-top">
    <div class="navbar-inner">
        <div class="container" style="width: auto;">

            <a class="brand" style="text-indent: 3em" href="#">
                Title
            </a>

            <ul class="nav">
                <li><a href="#">Profile</a></li>
                <li class="active"><a href="#">Statistics</a></li>
                <li><a href="#">Reader</a></li>

                <li class="dropdown" id="menu1">
                    <a class="dropdown-toggle" data-toggle="dropdown" href="#menu1">
                    Options
                    <b class="caret"></b>
                    </a>
                    <ul class="dropdown-menu">
                        <li><a href="#">Action</a></li>
                        <li><a href="#">Another action</a></li>
                        <li><a href="#">Something else here</a></li>
                        <li class="divider"></li>
                        <li><a href="#">Separated link</a></li>
                    </ul>
                </li>

            </ul>


        </div>
    </div>
</div>

Solution

If I am getting you correctly, when you say that clicking does nothing, do you mean that it does not point to your URL?

In the anchor tag <a href>it looks like you did not pass your file path to the href attribute. So, replace the # with your actual path for the file that you want to link.

<li><a href="#">Action</a></li>
<li><a href="action link here">Another action</a></li>
<li><a href="something else link here">Something else here</a></li>
<li class="divider"></li>
<li><a href="seperated link here">Separated link</a></li>

I hope this helps with your issue.
