Learn Basic CSS by Building a Cafe Menu - Step 88

Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here.

Your code so far
This is what I’m being told to do:

Under the Coffee heading, add an image using the url https://cdn.freecodecamp.org/curriculum/css-cafe/coffee.jpg . Give the image an alt value of coffee icon .

So far my code is as follows:

<h2>Coffee</h2>
            <img src = https://cdn.freecodecamp.org/curriculum/css-cafe/coffee.jpg>

It is giving an error as follows:
“Your img element should have an alt attribute of coffee icon.”

Yes… I am fully aware that I don’t even have the alt attibute of coffee icon typed in the code. I’m just confused on where exactly I’m supposed to add this “alt = coffee icon” code. Do I have to implement this before or after the image url? I just don’t know EXACTLY where I’m supposed to write “the alt attribute”. Any help would be appreciated!

Challenge: Learn Basic CSS by Building a Cafe Menu - Step 88

Link to the challenge:

I’ve edited your code 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.

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 (').

That didn’t answer my question… but thanks anyway

hbar1st was just helping you understand how to post code so it is readable on the forums. The challenge is asking you to add an image element with an “src” attribute, then an “alt” attribute as well. Your alt attribute will be added within the “img” tag. So just as you have an “src” attribute, after that, create an “alt” attribute with the required value, inside the “img” element tag. I hope this helps.

in case you didn’t solve the riddle yet :sweat_smile::
coffee icon

the alt attribute should be added to the img elements. may help to learn what attributes and elements are and the differences between them

Go back to your first project on the last task, scan through your work, and make sure your spelling is correct. It’ll all make sense.

It is great that you solved the challenge, but instead of posting your full working solution, it is best to stay focused on answering the original poster’s question(s) and help guide them with hints and suggestions to solve their own issues with the challenge.

We are trying to cut back on the number of spoiler solutions found on the forum and instead focus on helping other campers with their questions and definitely not posting full working solutions.

Sorry, I just wanted to help in case someone couldn’t solve it, and they had published the solution in another forum link, so I thought it could be published, I apologize.
