Please Tell us what’s happening in your own words.

Learning to describe problems is hard, but it is an important part of learning how to code.

Also, the more you say, the more we can help!

Add the ‘target’ attribute to equel your ‘_blank’ value so that your link opens up in a new tag.

<a href="" target="_blank">Link</a>

Hope this helps.

I assume you are speaking about step 14, after the opening anchor tag you need to put the target attribute assigned with value _blank, then followed by the href attribute

oh the “target” was the input i thought the “target attribute” represented a set of <> but attribute is what represents <>.?

yes that was helpful i noticed i wasnt placing “target=” in my code

is it necessary for the target attribute to be quoted?

An attribute is a keyword that goes in your elements opening tag and affects the elements behaviour but does not affect the look of your webpage. Those <> are tags.


I think its always better to quote your values to prevent errors.


The actual attribute does not need to be around quotes, but the values for attributes must always be in quotes
