I cant figure out the the last condition in creating a tribute page

I have looked at the other answers in the forum regarding this particular condition *“Your #img-div , #image , #img-caption , #tribute-info , and #tribute-link should all be descendants of #main .”
I can’t figure it out, I reread my code, checked if I ordered it wrong then looked up answers on the forum, and tried to do the solutions, but I still got the error returned. Am I missing something? Sorry please help!! I have been stuck on this one for quite a while

Hi lifeistender,

The exercise says: “Your #img-div , #image , #img-caption , #tribute-info , and #tribute-link should all be descendants of #main .”. This means that all of these elements should be nested in the “main” element. As you can see in your code you are putting a closing tag immediately after the h1 string, so all the others elements end up being outside the main element. I hope this explanation helps you to understand the problem. Peace!

Hi! Welcome to the forum!

Please try to link the to the project you are working on. It makes it faster to test code and refer back to user stories.

You may want to run your code though a html validator like this one. I’m seeing quite a few syntax mistakes.

For example, here the style sheet and title should be inside a <head> element, not a header element.

	<link rel="stylesheet" href="styles.css">						<title >Arnold Swazzenegar</title>

The <body> tag should also wrap around everything that isn’t inside the head tag.

And I can’t see a closing tag for your <ul> element.

And check the capitalisation of your doctype declaration. The doctype bit should be in all caps to meet standard.

Thank you so much!! I was under the assumption that descendant meant after closing it.


The HTML validator is quite a nice tool to check for mistakes which I realize were many, I went through my code again slowly and tidied it up and viola it worked!!! Thanks for the help, I was running in circles before this.
