Make Dead Links - Passes; but link still works

My code works and passes, however I feel that the text in the web page should not be “clickable” once the change is made. Click here to view more cat photos. Once I change the code, I can still click the link and it brings me to the same assignment, just on a new tab.

<h2>CatPhotoApp</h2>
<main>
  <p>Click here to view more <a href="#" target="_blank">cat photos</a>.</p>

  <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.</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>
</main>

Thanks!

I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make it easier to read.

For future posts, it is a lot easier to get help, and help, if you use the Get Help button on the lesson itself. It will prepopulate a post for you. All you have to do is fill in the blanks.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard. The “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) will also add backticks around text.

Note: Backticks are not single quotes.

Would you mind linking to the assignment that you area talking about?

clicking an empty link like that, if you are on page http://www.website.com/page it will bring to http://www.website.com/page# - essentially same page

it opens on a new tab for the target="_blank", delete that part and it will seem to not work

Anchor tags are always clickable. No matter what. By putting a #, you just make it so it doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere. As @ilenia said, the _blank is forcing it to a new tab.
