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

Link to the challenge:

How did you turn “link to cat pictures” into a link?

You are actually doing it correctly, except that you have added an extra “cat photos” to the end of the p element and turned that into a link. You don’t want to add any extra text. You want to turn the existing “cat photos” in the middle of a sentence into a link.

Thank you so much! I didn’t understand what the directions meant but I’ve fixed it now! :smile:

You are not alone, a lot of people don’t understand the directions for this step. In order to help make the instructions easier to understand, do you mind if I ask you why you thought you needed to add another “cat photos” to the end instead of using the “cat photos” that was already there? I am not asking this question to make fun of you. I’m just trying to understand why you did what you did so we can fix the instructions.

I think for it would be easier for my brain to understand if it were phrased “Turn the words ‘cat photos’ inside the phrase ‘See more cat photos in our gallery’ into a link.” or something similar to that! I am not the best at understanding written instructions so I usually need it to be as detailed as possible :sweat_smile:
