Learn HTML by Building a Cat Photo App - Step 12

Tell us what’s happening:
I can’t get passed the 12th step of building a cat photo app yet. It keeps telling me

" The link’s text should be cat photos . You have either omitted the text or have a typo."

I’ve looked over it again and again and it doesn’t’t look like there’s a problem with it. What can I do?

Your code so far

      <h2>Cat Photos</h2>
      <!-- TODO: Add link to cat photos -->

<!-- User Editable Region -->

      <p> See more <a href="https://freecatphotoapp.com"</a> cat photos in our gallery. </p>
      <a href="https://freecatphotoapp.com">link to cat pictures</a>

You didnt turn the words cat photos into a link you just deleted some of the text. So when the challenge tells you to surround the words “cat photos” in anchor tags it means that the text needs to go in between the

<a href=“link”> </a>

It needs to go between those tags. You are going to need to add the text you deleted back.

Did I do it right? Also thanks for all the help

It looks good. Its better if you post the actual code so we can copy it and run the challenge ourselves. I would remove the space that comes after the href equal sign

Also make sure that there is no space between > and the word “cat”

And no space between the word photos and the </a>
