I see two errors here.

  • herf and href are not the same.
  • You are missing >.

oooohhh im dislexic didnt even know i was doing that


thank you that helped

I hear you :relieved: I have that problem every time. The worst that I have experienced like this is when I spent like a week finding the error, I couldn’t, my wife came and I asked her (she doesn’t code) to compare the 2 files (the one with the error and the correct one) visually and tell me what was wrong. She found it, it was comma, but the most common that happens to me is writing a word with the letters all mixed up.

In the future, save some time and use an html validator :slight_smile:

Here’s a good one: https://validator.w3.org/
Choose “validate by direct input” tab to copy paste stuff, or you can point it at a live webpage as well.

It will automatically check your html and tell you stuff like href vs herf, etc.

Depending on where you’re at in your learning, you’ll also find there’s a bunch of other stuff that shows up as an error or warning that’s “best practice”, but haven’t learned yet. Don’t sweat it. Focus on the stuff that’s blocking you from progressing in the mean time :slight_smile:

Also… bask in the glory that you’ve learned enough to start making use of tools like validators to speed up now! Hooray!


Did you end up getting through it?

that tag should be great code !!

yes i did it was a miss spelling error.

Hi Kelly!

My friend has dyslexia, he’s not a coder but he did create some ‘systems’ to help him against repetition of his personal common errors.

So in a way he made a library of the errors he makes most often and then he can search for them. So in a way you could see this as 2 columns, ‘Error’, ‘Correction’. Search with ‘Error’ and paste in ‘Correction’. I don’t know how this might work for you, if it even can but I thought I might as well mention it.

@palmaone Have you found any systems that may help you or is it best to get someone to just look over it?

Griz :slight_smile:


Hey @Grizhlie thanks for asking. :smiley: Actually no, I have not found or looked for any systems to help yet. I had heard in a podcast about someone who uses one such system as editor plugins that help with friendlier and more readable fonts and colors, but to be honest I didn’t realized I had this problem until recently and all thanks to coding. I found that this really make learning a lot slower and frustrating, although I think I’m improving at learning, reading and coding .

I think your recommendation above is great, I’m definitely also going to consider exploring existing and custom systems that might help prevent or detect in a consistent predictable fashion.

Wow that’s amazing, you found that you have dyslexia through coding! More uses than one than, happy for you.

Good luck in experimenting with what works, I’m curious with what you come up with. I always look to systems personally to simplify pretty much everything, they just work :grin:!

Happy coding,
