Hi, Thanks.
I did and posted the new code but it still doesn’t work.

Where’s your code, is it on codepen?


You have two elements with the id ‘projects’

But it doesn’t make any changes if i delete one of them.

The link is working, but you can’t press it, that’s why it’s not taking you to the section.

This is because of the z-indices in your CSS. You are giving some element a position in the Z axis in front of the anchor tag and that’s blocking any clicks on the elements behind. Remove them and it will work.

Little tip here: check your code from top to bottom as you have many lines to change or delete. E.g.: the anchor tag belongs inside the h2 tag and not the other way around.

Perfect…thanks… the problem was with the z-indexes.
