Link to the challenge:
https://learn.freecodecamp.org/responsive-web-design/basic-html-and-html5/comment-out-html

if you want to add comments to your code you need to use <!-- to start the comment and --> to end the comment

Comment out your h1 element so that it is not visible on your page.

Leave your h2 element uncommented so that it is visible on your page.

Cannot read property ‘length’ of null

so what do I do?

I suggest you reset the code

and then, without changing anything else, you need to make sure to have the comment tags where needed

if you need to have the h1 element commented out make sure to have an opening comment tag before the h1 element and a closing comment tag after the h1 element

I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make easier to read.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard. The “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) will also add backticks around text.

Note: Backticks are not single quotes.

this is a comment, it starts with <!-- and end with -->, and code is the content of the comment

you have removed the h1, h2 and p tags, but the challenge asks you to not change those
the only thing you need to do in this challenge is add/remove comment tags, if you touch anything else you are not doing what the challenge asks yoi

that’s not how comment works…
<!-- open the comment, --> closes the comment, and in the middle you out what you want and it will not appear in the web page

Here’s what your h1 commented out should look like:

<!--<h1>Hello World</h1>-->

Now, the challenge says only to comment out the h1 and p elements. You don’t need to put the word code in there.

My bad, it’s been awhile since I did this one lol! And I don’t use it too often :grinning: I had to go back to it and to the challenge again myself.

<!--code--!>
<h1><!--code>Hello World</>!--code>
The syntax of the commenting out code is improper. For example, the proper comment out code has the following syntax: <!-- some code you want to comment out -->.

I would write the h2 code like this: <!-- <h2>CatPhotoApp</h2> -->. I would recommend following using the same form for the <p> tag below.

I hope that helps!

Leave your h2 element uncommented so that it is visible on your page.

still cant figure out what that means even after doing what you told me to do

@abigailRose2020
Here are the requirements:

  1. Comment out your h1 element so that it is not visible on your page.

  2. Leave your h2 element uncommented so that it is visible on your page.

  3. Comment out your p element so that it is not visible on your page. Be sure to close each of your comments with --> .

  4. Do not change the order of the h1 h2 or p in the code.

What you will want to do is wrap the <h1>Hello World</h1> tag with the comment tag. For example, you would do that by writing in this code, <!--<h1>Hello World</h1>-->. I saw that your code had the tag for commenting out inside of the <h1> tag, which is improper syntax.

For the second requirement, you do not need to comment out the text.

For the third requirement, wrap the <p> tag in the comment out tag like requirement one. For example, <!-- <p>Some code</p>-->.

Keep the order of the tags specified in the fourth requirement.

Let me know if that is more clear on what you need to do.
