Tell us what’s happening:

saying I need an a element that links to


Make sure your a element has a closing tag.

not sure where I’m going wrong on this :confused:

Your code so far

<a> "cat photos"</a>

<link href="" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
  .red-text {
    color: red;

  h2 {
    font-family: Lobster, Monospace;>Cat Photos</a>

  p {
    font-size: 16px;
    font-family: Monospace;

  .thick-green-border {
    border-color: green;
    border-width: 10px;
    border-style: solid;
    border-radius: 50%;

  .smaller-image {
    width: 100px;

<h2 class="red-text">CatPhotoApp</h2>

<img class="smaller-image thick-green-border" src="" alt="A cute orange cat lying on its back. ">

<p class="red-text">Kitty ipsum dolor sit amet, shed everywhere shed everywhere stretching attack your ankles chase the red dot, hairball run catnip eat the grass sniff.</p>
<p class="red-text">Purr jump eat the grass rip the couch scratched sunbathe, shed everywhere rip the couch sleep in the sink fluffy fur catnip scratched.</p>

Link to the challenge:

You’ve just got the form of the anchor tag wrong. For example, if I wanted to link to google, I would do:

<a href="">My Google Link!<a/>

so is it

<a href=>cat photos</a>


I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into the forum, precede it with a line of three backticks and follow it with a line of three backticks to make easier to read. See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard. The “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) will also add backticks around text.

<a href=>

cat photos</a>


The url should be in quotes.

ahhh…ok let me give that shot and see if that works

passed it but needed an anchor before “cat photos” as well…wonder why it didn’t show that in the example it provided.

I’m not sure what you mean. I just did it again and it was the standard format:

<a href="url">label</a>
