Step 12 Help please!

The hint says Your code should only contain one anchor (a ) element. Remove any extra anchor elements.

I do not understand what I am doing wrong. Could someone please give me some feedback and advice on what I am doing wrong?

Here is the code:

  **Your code so far**
    <h2>Cat Photos</h2>
    <!-- TODO: Add link to cat photos -->
    <p><a>Click here to view more cat photos.</p>
    <a href="">cat photos</a>
    <img src="" alt="A cute orange cat lying on its back.">

First, remove the anchor tag you have here. You don’t need it.

<p><a>Click here to view more cat photos.</p>

Second, the lesson wanted you to turn the existing phrase ‘cat photos’ in the existing text ‘Click here to view more cat photos’. You don’t need to write any new text, just turn the existing phrase ‘cat photos’ into the link.

You’ve turned the text ‘cat photos’ into a link, but it was supposed to remain part of the sentence ‘click here to view more cat photos’

Hope that helps!

Thank you so much for your help!

However, I am sorry, but I still have my code messed up.
This is my code so far:

The hint says: " Your code should only contain one anchor (a ) element. Remove any extra anchor elements."

However, I do not understand because I think that, I have removed the (a) anchors?

If you have any feedback please do write!

Happy Pride Month!

Hi, please post code not images it is much easier to read. This gif explains how to do that and format it so it is readable in the forum.

Second, your HTML is formatted incorrectly leading the the error message. You don’t need to remove those anchor tags as that stops the link from working.

The lesson needs you to turn the words ‘cat photos’ in the sentence ‘click here to view more cat photos’ into a link. How could you add html elements around the text the lesson gives you to do this? As a clue you don’t need to write the words ‘cat photos’ just add the elements to the existing text you are given.

This is how you format a link inside a paragraph. Apply that to your own code.

<p>I am a paragraph, <a href=“”>I am a link.</a> I am more text.</p>

Thank you for your help.

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