If you’re referring to the challenge Link to External Pages with Anchor Elements, read the challenge carefully.
Anchor elements <a></a> have href attribute whose value is the link to be opened upon user click and between the opening and closing anchor tags <a></a> you provide text which will be displayed to user in the browser as hyperlink text .
For eg. <a href="https://freecodecamp.org">this links to freecodecamp.org</a> will appear to user as this links to freecodecamp.org.

Keep trying. happy coding!

i tried using this anchor but its not working or maybe there is a bug with the freecodecamp

Yeah, it’s not working. :frowning_face: I’m using Mozilla Firefox.
Try doing it with a different browser or maybe there’s a bug in FCC test output.

Hi,

Working for me in Chrome. (chrome is the preferred browser for FCC)

Are you following the instructions or the example?

Create an a element that links to http://freecatphotoapp.com and has “cat photos” as its anchor text.

If you trying to link to freecodecamp.org then you are not following the instructions

Should look like this
cat photos
