Bootstrap navbar wont collapse

My bootstrap navbar that i got from the bootstrap jumbotron example won't collapse. If it is that i dont have the right javascript, css or Jquery links pls send me the right ones. I am kinda new to the navbar thing so i really need some help. Thank you!
Here is my code:

<nav class="navbar navbar-inverse navbar-static-top">
<div class="container">
<div class="navbar-header">
<button type="button" class="navbar-toggle collapsed" data-toggle="collapse" data-target=".nav-collapse" aria-expanded="false" aria-controls="navbar">
<span class="sr-only">Toggle navigation</span>
<span class="icon-bar"></span>
<span class="icon-bar"></span>
<span class="icon-bar"></span>
<a class="navbar-brand" href="#">Project name</a>
<div id="navbar" class="navbar-collapse collapse">
<ul class="nav navbar-nav">
<li class="active"><a href="#">Home</a></li>
<li><a href="#about">About</a></li>
<li><a href="#contact">Contact</a></li>
<li class="dropdown">
<a href="#" class="dropdown-toggle" data-toggle="dropdown" role="button" aria-haspopup="true" aria-expanded="false">Dropdown <span class="caret"></span></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 role="separator" class="divider"></li>
<li class="dropdown-header">Nav header</li>
<li><a href="#">Separated link</a></li>
<li><a href="#">One more separated link</a></li>
<ul class="nav navbar-nav navbar-right">
<li><a href="../navbar/">Default</a></li>
<li><a href="./">Static top <span class="sr-only">(current)</span></a></li>
<li><a href="../navbar-fixed-top/">Fixed top</a></li>
</div><!--/.nav-collapse -->


Your code seems to work properly for me. That just indicates you're missing some JavaScript files. To be more precisely, you are missing Bootstrap and jQuery JS files. Inside your <body>, just add both files.

<script src=""></script>
<script src=""></script>

Keep in mind to include jQuery first, otherwise Bootstrap won't work (Bootstrap simply requires jQuery, that's all).

Here's your code, working. I've just copied your markup and added Bootstrap + jQuery.


I didn't notice you've been using the wront data-target. Thanks to @Asifuzzaman Redoy. Just change your data-target to the following:


I've updated my fiddle accordingly.
