I decided to implement dropdown menus for a few items, including the "posts" link in the navbar (for logged in users). It works great, but I'm frustrated that there isn't really an option that allows you to make the parent item clickable, so I can't click the item that actually says "posts", and say, go to the posts listing page. I have to hover over (which was sort of a pain in the ass to get working properly), and click on a link that will take me to the listing page. That's too much work.
Bootstrap is pretty great, I sure wouldn't want to put this together manually in any capacity, but some of the assumptions are irritating.
