Hi @lamaine !

Can you show us what you tried here?
It would help to see your attempt and guide you from there

 No Copyright - freeCodeCamp.org
         <a freeCodeCamp.org> "https://www.freecodecamp.org"</a>

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.

You can also use the “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) to add backticks around text.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard.
Note: Backticks (`) are not single quotes (’).

this is one of many combinations ive tried

You have a couple of issues.

No.1:
The site here

is what is supposed to be wrapped in anchor tags because it needs to be a link.

No.2:
You have an error here.
You are missing the href value.

I think it would help to look at what you did earlier for anchor tags to help you fix these issues.

Take a close look at the code here

Hope that helps!

`gonna give it a try if nothing will sleep on it and try again tomorrow. Thank you

so above last line of code is my issue been at this for hours I thank you for the guidance but at this point I need a little more help i figured out everything on my own up to this part

we are getting closer.

The first issue you will need tackle is wrapping the anchor tags around the website here

In the earlier example I showed you how they had you wrap the anchor tag around “cat photos”

It is the same concept here

Once you fix that, then you need to remove this part here because that is not correct syntax

Just to be clear, this is the website name you need to wrap your anchor tags around.

The anchor tags go around freeCodeCamp.org

  <p>
        No Copyright - freeCodeCamp.org
        <a target="_blank" "freeCodeCamp.org" href="https://www.freecodecamp.org"></a>

The goal is to wrap the text “freeCodeCamp.org” from the paragraph element p in an anchor element. You have successfully created an anchor element, however, it is a little off.

The first issue is you have “freeCodeCamp.org” written in your anchor element as just standard text. I understand where you were going with this. However, if text that is intended to be visible on the screen is wrapped within a coded element it will not be visible on the screen. So delete that.

The next issue is where you are struggling. The paragraph element has to have its preexisting text turned into a clickable link. To do this you need to move your anchor element.

Try to think of it as an order of how things will be done. First, you will read the text “No Copyright -”. After that you will read the text “freeCodeCamp.org” which is also a clickable link.

Don’t forget to close your p element though! In your current rendition of this you have no closing tag for your p element.

so I tried every way possible I am done except for this one issue I have all 67 lessons done except lesson #65 I really need more i tried the way I was advised and obviously its me but I dont know. I say what has stuck its the href part where do i apply it with the https:// link or the freecodecamp.org or do I have to include the target attribute and where does that need to place Im bald but pulling out my metaphorical hairs please kindly assist
and thank you I will copy & paste what I so far thank all

This was closer. I’m not sure why you deleted so much of what you already had.

I have tried every way possible day #3 need intervention really want to move on to next group of lessons

You are asked to enclose the text freeCodeCamp.org in an anchor element.

This is how you do it :

<a href="someLink"> Some text </a>

Hi again!

I would look very carefully at @spark07 's code example and apply that to the website name here

Make sure to just wrap the anchor tags around freeCodeCamp.org

That is understandable.
But working through this problem and trying different things is good experience because that mimics real world development.

Often times on the job, you will be stuck on an issue for a while before arriving at an answer. Even senior developers go through this all of the time. :slight_smile:
