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.

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

  <img src="" 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>


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 it will bring to - 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.
