Learn HTML by Building a Cat Photo App - Step 12

I’m trying to make the words “cat photo” as a link but I can’t seem to catch what I’m doing wrong here.

Your code so far

<html>
  <body>
    <h1>CatPhotoApp</h1>
    <main>
      <h2>Cat Photos</h2>
      <!-- TODO: Add link to cat photos -->
      <p>Click here to view more <a href="https://freecatphotoapp.com">cat photos.</p>
      <a href="https://freecatphotoapp.com">link to cat pictures</a>
      <img src="https://cdn.freecodecamp.org/curriculum/cat-photo-app/relaxing-cat.jpg" alt="A cute orange cat lying on its back.">
    </main>
  </body>
</html>

Challenge: Learn HTML by Building a Cat Photo App - Step 12

Link to the challenge:

You are close and there are a few ways to do this. You could change the text on the <a> tag potentially but that may not satisfy the instructions fully.

You might want to look at wrapping the <a> tags around the tag you currently have written ‘cat photos’ under. The parent-child relationship of elements will extend the ‘clickability’ of the <a> tag onto the <h> tag since the <h2> would be a child of <a>.

hope that helps a bit.

<a>cat photos.</a></p>

Like that?

I tried this and it seemed to display correctly in the browser, but it didn’t satisfy requirements.

Do you mean wrap “a” attribute around “cat photos?”

Because I tried this and it displayed correctly, but didn’t satisfy requirements.

you are missing the closing anchor tag

Before “cat” or after "photos? I tried both already and it didn’t work either

The anchor tags tell the browser which words you want to make into a link.

So if you want “cat photos” to be the link you must put the anchor tag after photos (but before the period for eg if one exists)

Yes this was it! I actually removed the period altogether and it worked. But I went back and added the anchor before the period. That was driving me crazy. Thank you!
