Sorry if this is a really silly query.
I am just going through the tutorial and trying to:
Link to Internal Sections of a Page with Anchor Elements
Iv tried different options and also tried:
<p id="destination">I am the destination of the link</p> &
<h1 id="title">I am the destination of the link</h1>
The error I keep getting is:
footer tag should have an
id attribute set to “footer”.
My code is:
<a href="#footer">Jump to Bottom </a>
<img src="https://bit.ly/fcc-relaxing-cat" alt="A cute orange cat lying on its back.">

<p>Meowwww loved it, hated it, loved it, hated it yet spill litter box, scratch at owner, destroy all furniture, especially couch or lay on arms while you're using the keyboard. Missing until dinner time toy mouse squeak roll over. With tail in the air lounge in doorway. Man running from cops stops to pet cats, goes to jail.</p>
<p>Intently stare at the same spot poop in the plant pot but kitten is playing with dead mouse. Get video posted to internet for chasing red dot leave fur on owners clothes meow to be let out and mesmerizing birds leave fur on owners clothes or favor packaging over toy so purr for no reason. Meow to be let out play time intently sniff hand run outside as soon as door open yet destroy couch.</p>

Please advise what am I doing wrong?
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 it 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.
please include also the challenge link when you ask for help
or just use the Ask for help button, so that you will have a precompiled post with all the useful info in which you just need to ask description of your issues
the steps in the instructions are:
Change your external link to an internal link by changing the
href attribute to “#footer” and the text from “cat photos” to “Jump to Bottom”.
And this part you did.
target="_blank" attribute from the anchor tag since this causes the linked document to open in a new window tab.
And this part you also did
Then add an
id attribute with a value of “footer” to the
<footer> element at the bottom of the page.
This part you didn’t. You created an h1 element and added to it the id of footer, but instead you had to add the id to an element already existing in the page. Notice the “at the bottom of the page” part
You also changed the text of the footer element, which may cause the tests to fail.
I did try changing the code at the bottom, as that’s what I had thought originally, had the same error. Not sure what to do now.
how did you change the code at the bottom?
if you do any changes post again your code, and we can see why there is still an error
I did this:
<footer> Copyright Footer</footer>
I think somehow, I need to change Id within that first line of code rather, than 2 lines I have currently got. Any advice, not sure how to do that…
you need to change the existing element, not create a new one
<id=footer> Copyright Footer</footer>
that’s not a valid tag
you want to add an attribute to the tag, not change what kind of tag it is, do you?
h2 element of above had a correct attribute id set to footer, what did you do differntly this time?
Im so sorry, I really don’t mean to be dim, I don’t understand how to change this
this is an
h2 element with an id of footer
there is first the tag name, and then the attribute(s) with its(their) value(s)
instead you need to add the id to the
footer element, where
footer is the tag name, and you need to add an attribut
see also the colors when formatted as code, should be an hint
<footer id="footer">copyright footer</footer>
