I am not sure what you are working on.

You should not put your code inside the

div class=“author”

Try putting the social-icons div below the author div close tag

 <div class="author">
          <div class="social-icons">
            <a href="https://www.facebook.com/freecodecamp"></a>
             <a href="https://twitter.com/freecodecamp"></a>
             <a href="https://instagram.com/freecodecamp"></a>
             <a href="https://www.linkedin.com/school/free-code-camp"></a>
             <a href="https://www.youtube.com/freecodecamp"></a>
          </div>          
          <p class="author-name">
Thanks

[solution redacted]
Below the div class=“author” close tag, not inside

@Saturn1 div elements have opening and closing tags. The instruction states to put the new div element below the .author element. You have nested the new div element inside the .author element.

Thanks , just foolish mistake l made .

You will see some sites reference element and tag interchangeably without considering the fact the latter is part of an element.
