I'm on Step 12 on the Free Code Camp (Learn HTML by building a Cat Photo App)

I’m trying to learn how to code & I’m going through the beginning stages & I’m on Step 12 & I cannot figure out the correct code to move along. Can someone assist me? Thanks!

Step 12

Turn the words cat photos located inside p element into a link using the same value for the href attribute as the link below the p element. The p element should show the same text in the browser, but the words cat photos should now be a link. Make sure to remove the a element with the text cat photos on the line below the p element.

    <a href="cat photos"></a>

in this part of your code wrap the the text cat photos, inside the p element, with anchor tags, and href should be the link it was “https://freecatphotoapp.com”.

Hi @adunn86 and welcome!!

<p>
This is text, <a>this is text inside a p element and is also a link</a>
</p>
<p>
This is another text, <img  src="workplace.jpg" alt="Workplace">the image before is also a link</a>. I hope this examples will help you to understand the anchor element syntax.
</p>

The p element is a block element (it sits in a new line, because it takes all the available space, from left to right)
and the anchor, a, element is an inline element (like a word or a white space, it sits side by side with other words and inline elements, and only takes the space that its content needs).
