Hi there and welcome to our community!

You don’t appear to have added a target attribute. Attributes are added to the opening tag of an element and usually have the syntax attribute="value".
You can add multiple attributes to the same element by separating them with spaces.

Welcome to the community!

This attribute seems to confuse us a bit because of the value of “_blank”.

However, the attribute and value are added the same way the href attribute and its value are within the opening anchor tag.

It is important to leave a space between the target attribute and any other attribute.

Here is a good article from FCC News category explaining the target attribute with good examples on how to use it.
