Tell us what’s happening:

When I tried to run the below code, the browser is opening a new tab showing the free code camp website. It does not go down to show the footer. Can someone help me to solve this issue?

Your code so far


<h2>CatPhotoApp</h2>
<main>
  
  <a href="#footer" target="_blank">Jump to Bottom</a>
  
  <img src="https://bit.ly/fcc-relaxing-cat" alt="A cute orange cat lying on its back.">
  
  <p>Kitty ipsum dolor sit amet, shed everywhere shed everywhere stretching attack your ankles chase the red dot, hairball run catnip eat the grass sniff. Purr jump eat the grass rip the couch scratched sunbathe, shed everywhere rip the couch sleep in the sink fluffy fur catnip scratched. 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>Purr jump eat the grass rip the couch scratched sunbathe, shed everywhere rip the couch sleep in the sink fluffy fur catnip scratched.

  <p>Meowwww loved it, hated it, loved it, hated it yet spill litter box, scratch at owner, destroy all furniture, especially couch or lay on arms while you're using the keyboard. Missing until dinner time toy mouse squeak roll over. With tail in the air lounge in doorway. Man running from cops stops to pet cats, goes to jail.</p>
  <p>Intently stare at the same spot poop in the plant pot but kitten is playing with dead mouse. Get video posted to internet for chasing red dot leave fur on owners clothes meow to be let out and mesmerizing birds leave fur on owners clothes or favor packaging over toy so purr for no reason. Meow to be let out play time intently sniff hand run outside as soon as door open yet destroy couch.</p>

You need to add the id “footer” to your footer element.


#3

I have mentioned the id “footer” to my footer element in the code. But still it is not working. It is still opening a new tab.


#4

The code that you showed us does not have the id “footer” applied. You need to share your most recent code in order for us to be able to help you.


#5

This is the revised code. I have added the id attribute to the footer.

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.

When I run the tests with your code above, they pass.


#8

Well, I tried refreshing and resubmitting the code. It is showing that the test run is successful. But when I click on Jump to Bottom link on the page, it does not scroll down to footer. By the way, is it supposed to go down?


#9

Oooh. I see what you’re saying. I think that’s just an issue with the in-browser demo.
