Two heading titles have links for some reason in Personal Portfolio project

I’ve only been coding for a short period of time so forgive me if this seems like a stupid questions, but for some reason the welcome section <h1> and project section <h1> has a link whereas the contact section

does not. Would anyone mind helping me to figure out why?

Thanks, Aaron

HI @aaron0pallichan !
Welcome to the forum!

I briefly looked at your code and couldn’t find an <h1></h1> element.
I see a few headers but no h1 elements.
That is what the test is looking for

Oops! Sorry about that, my mistake. I’ve changed them back to h1, as I made them header when I was troubleshooting. Still can’t figure it out though. :frowning:

You have a few syntax errors in your code.
That is why you are getting this link issue.

First take a close look here

    <li> <a href="#welcome-section" class="nav-link"> About me </li>
    <li> <a href="#projects" class="nav-link"> Projects </li>
    <li> <a href="#contact" class="nav-link"> Contact me </li>

You are missing closing tags for each of those anchor tags.

You also have other syntax issues, like this

  <h1> Contact me </g>

and this

  <li><a href="" id="profile-link" target="_blank"> FCC Profile </li>

I would slowly go through your html to clean up the syntax errors.
Codepen has a tool to highlight errors in your code.

Once you fix all of those errors then your html page should behave the way it is supposed to.

Hope that helps!

Also, a few other things to note. :grinning:

The h1 element should only be used once per html page.
This element is supposed to represent the most important heading on the page.
I would only use it once and then use h2’s later on.

You really shouldn’t use br tags like this.


If you need to create space between elements, then use css margins.
here is the correct use for the br tag.

Hope that helps!
