Two issues I see

  1. sticking an h2 element inside of your footer is probably wrong

  2. your closing footer tag has incorrect syntax

i removed the h2 element in the footer and also added this / but its still not working

What is your latest code? What is the link to the challenge?

this is the link to the challenge https://www.freecodecamp.org/learn/responsive-web-design/basic-html-and-html5/link-to-internal-sections-of-a-page-with-anchor-elements

What is your latest code?


You made a bunch of changes to the footer that were not part of the instructions:

Then add an id attribute with a value of footer to the <footer> element at the bottom of the page.

You should only add the id attribute to the footer. You must make no other changes.

i keep getting this message regarding the footer " The footer tag should have an id attribute set to “footer”.

It is best to provide a link to the challenge you are working on.

This can’t be the correct id value

This is malformed syntax and it looks like you removed the previous footer content.

okay, so its possible that could be the only problem here?

I have no idea. I don’t know what challenge you are working on.

i tracked back and the correct footer content but i still keep getting " The footer tag should have an id attribute set to “footer”."

I still have no idea what challenge you are working on. Can you provide a link?

Wait, is this a duplicate of this topic:

Please do not make duplicate topics. I have combined your two topics on the same challenge.

What is your updated code?

Oh okay, still trying to get a hang of this space

updated code
