Learning to describe problems is hard, but it is an important part of learning how to code.
Also, the more you say, the more we can help!

does it say what link you need to put? I can help you if you give me a bit more info on your issue, thanks :slight_smile:

Ah ok, i have just seen the link.
so to make a link in html you need to use the <a> tag.
For example, to make a link to youtubeyou would do this:

<a href="https://youtube.com">Youtube</a>

Lets break down what each part of the code means:

<a

this part starts off the link tag in html.

href="https://youtube.com">

“href” is where we put the link where we want the user to go to, inside the quotes.
the closing angle bracket finishes the first <a> tag.

The text that will be shown to the person viewing the page comes next:

Youtube</a>

and </a> is the second tag that finishes off the link.
Now on the thing you are stuck on, it wants the text to be “link to cat pictures”.
We can edit line 8 like so:
BEFORE:

 <a href="https://freecatphotoapp.com"></a>

Where will the text go?
