I can't seem to figure this out at this moment in time. I created a new application from scratch, added a view, copied a template for the application.html.erb to contain a navbar. When you make your window smaller than 800px so the menu merges into a pulldown, you are unable to open the navbar. I uploaded the application if someone can look at it.
