Challenge: Step 12

Link to the challenge:

The code you posted above looks like the default code for the step. What have you tried so far?

Here are the key parts of the instructions:

“replacing the words (cat photos) with the anchor element added previously.”

In other words, move the link below the <p> into the <p> by replacing the words “cat photos” with the actual link.

Hello there.

Do you have a question?

If so, please edit your post to include it in the Tell us what’s happening section.

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

Also, the more information you give us, the more likely we are to be able to help.

<p>Click here to view more cat photos</a>

Here you have two different elements for the start and end tags.

As said, you need to put the a element inside the p element. The a element should replace the paragraph text cat photos.


<h3>Go to <a href="#">top</a></h3>

but then cat photos shows up in the browser and keeps telling me it shouldn’t be there

when I do this it tells me the links text should be cat photos

What is your updated code?

I don’t know ,what is that?

Just to be clear, the code I posted was just an example.

It would have started out like this:

<h3>Go to top</h3>
<a href="#">top</a>

And ended like this:

<h3>Go to <a href="#">top</a></h3>

Now look at the staring code again:

<p>Click here to view more cat photos.</p>
<a href="">cat photos</a>

what were u doing wrong, im stuck on same one

Looks like u forgot closing p tag

if you create your own topic and post your own code I am sure you will receive help!

replace the words cat photos in the p element with the anchor element

some times guys it doesn’t work even if you have everything right just restart the step from the restart step button and it’s gonna work

If it doesn’t work, you probably don’t “have everything right”. We sometimes have bugs, especially with the new curriculum, but it’s bad advice to assume that your code is correct when tests fail. Most of the forum posts have errors in the posted code.

The OP has already been helped, so I’m closing this topic.
