Is that right ?

Challenge: Learn HTML by Building a Cat Photo App - Step 25

Link to the challenge:

Not quite. You don’t need quotation marks. Also, you should simply enclose the word love in opening and closing emphasis tags, so check the syntax.

any help ? please ? d

what is the issue you need help with (I see someone already posted to respond to you…)

Neither response is helpful towards the answer. I have the same issue. It’s either that or the question is buggy and doesn’t respond to the correct code.

He’s asking whats the proper prompt as theres not insight to the proper way besides bad vague descriptors. We’re basically guessing until we get the right answer because we don’t have good examples first.
I don’t know how to even share my code without it disappearing in the comments. bad design if you ask me

whats an example of a proper emphasis tag?

If you have a question about a specific challenge as it relates to your written code for that challenge, and you’ve tried to solve it at least 3 times so far and still need some help, just click the Ask for Help button located on the challenge (it looks like a question mark).
This button will create a new topic with all code you have written and include a link to the challenge also. You will still be able to ask any questions in the post before submitting it to the forum.

Thank you.

all html tags look the same. They just have different names.

Learn HTML by Building a Cat Photo App - Step 25

Theres only one specific challenge here, so either you’re not reading the top of the forum or this is a bot that’s unaware that theres only one good response to this question. which is either giving a good example or just giving the answer outright. Otherwise until you go look at the top of this comment section or actual question itself in STEP 25, Idk what to tell you.

I’m a little confused about your confusion with this challenge.

The instructions say:

Emphasize the word love in the figcaption element by wrapping it in an emphasis em element.

Is it not self-explanatory?

Or, if you want to understand more about an emphasis tag, a Google search will give you this for instance: HTML em tag.

IDK HOW TO TYPE CODE INTO THE COMMENTS. IM HERE TO LEARN HOW TO CODE, and some people seem to think we already know how to. I’ve noticed many commenters not getting an answer because the instructors seem to assume everyone already knows how to code. no, I need you to instruct. I would give an example but when I do it disappears because the comments recognize the code for whatever reason. So Yeah idk how to type what I put down. So whoever designed this is not thinking about this from a beginners perspective and it’s really annoying and bad teaching skills.

Each question needs an example with it, not just leave you sitting their guessing. CODE HAS TO BE EXACT ON HERE SO IDK WHY YOU’RE GIVING PEOPLE a HARD TIME BY NOT WANTING TO INSTRUCT THEM ON HOW TO DO IT.

As for this challenge, the instructions are:

Emphasize the word love in the figcaption element by wrapping it in an emphasis em element.

So, find the <figcaption> element and put an <em> element around the word ‘love’.

An HTML element usually has an opening tag, content, then a closing tag, like your figcaption element:

You can nest elements within other elements. For instance, the following code has a paragraph element with some text and one word made bold, using <strong> tags:

<p>This is a very <strong>important</strong> bit of text</p>

Which comes out as:

This is a very important bit of text

I’m sorry if I came across as patronising. We’re not allowed to give out solutions. I’m just trying understand better what it is you’re struggling with.

Thank you, and yes, many other answers to many students inquiries do come off as patronizing and it’s not good for learning, only makes people feel stupider when they’re already struggling. I really do appreciate the concise answer this time. I’m not saying you’re this way, I’ve just noticed it several times in the past and it can deter people easily if they don’t think they can get real help. Sometimes the error is as simple as a missed “space” in the code, which was the issue…
