You have a typo in your href. http//: should be http://

[quote=“kevcomedia, post:2, topic:162929”]
http://
[/quote] still not working

Here's a cat photos for you to follow.

How come? The placement of the colon in the href is literally the only thing that’s off in your code.


#5

I don’t know You need an a element that links to http://freecatphotoapp.com this is what it says


#6

Try resetting your code. If it still fails, try clearing your browser’s cache.


#7

#8

Can you show me your code?

The text between the <a> tags should be cat photos, not catphotos.
<a href=".."> catphotos</a> should be <a href="..">cat photos</a>.

Next time please paste the code instead of posting a screenshot. It’s tedious to look at the screenshot and type the code (and it can get error-prone too). To post code, hit the </> button on the forum editor.
