CSS Question

Logout form within Bootstrap navbar dropdown

I have a Bootstrap3 navbar with a dropdown menu.

I want my "logout" form inside that dropdown. It is not a visible form, just a logout button within a form.

I tried this:

<div class="navbar-collapse collapse">
<ul class="nav navbar-nav">
<li class="dropdown">
<a href="#" class="dropdown-toggle" data-toggle="dropdown" role="button">Dropdown<span class="caret"></span></a>
<ul class="dropdown-menu">

<!-- this dropdown menu item looks right -->
<li><a href="#">Foo</a></li>

<!-- this dropdown menu item (a logout form) does not -->
<li><form action="/logout" method="post"><button type="submit" class="btn btn-link navbar-btn navbar-link">Log off</button></form></li>

</ul>
</li>
</ul>
</div>


But it is not styled properly.

How do I make it match normal dropdown links? I hope I don't need to manually tweak the css, and that there's a built in way to do this?

try this Sample [UPDATED]

.btn-logout {
  width: 100%;

  text-align: left !important;
