Look at you quotations again.

Edit: also you didn’t close your img

In HTML, words that are surrounded by < and > are called elements. The first word inside of those code brackets is the actual element name, which tells the browser how it should behave. Any extra words inside of those brackets are called attributes.

To define an attribute of an element you would write something like this:
<element attribute='attribute value'>

The objective of your task with this lesson is to assign an alt attribute to your <img> element with a value that describes the photo.

Hope this helps clarify. Feel free to respond for more information.


This is not a valid alt attribute.

Going back to the example provided:

<img src="https://www.freecatphotoapp.com/your-image.jpg" alt="A business cat wearing a necktie.">

The alt attribute is part of the img tag, not a separate tag.

that was a great help. Thank you, Jeremy.

now I’m facing another issue.

It’s telling me that I should have an src that points to the kitten picture.
I’ve read the example in the HTML attribute explanation page, but I don’t see any difference between what I have vs what is on that page.

Can you post your new code so we can see what is going on?
Thanks! :grinning:

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.

You can also use the “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) to add backticks around text.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard.
Note: Backticks (`) are not single quotes (’).

This is what I’m working with atm.

sorry, I’m very new to this, and still trying to familiarize myself with everything.

You are using a different src url here

Here are the directions again for the correct url
Now set the src attribute so that it points to the url https://cdn.freecodecamp.org/curriculum/cat-photo-app/relaxing-cat.jpg
