Wrong Syntax for HTML?

Hi, this is the prompt

Make the text freeCodeCamp.org into a link by enclosing it in an anchor (a ) element. The href attribute should be set to https://www.freecodecamp.org .

and this is what i put

 <a href="https://www.freecodecamp.org">freeCodeCamp.org</a>

yet it gives me error


Sorry, your code does not pass. Hang in there.


Your anchor (a) element should be nested within the footer element. Make sure to add an opening tag and closing tag for the anchor (a) element.

any reason why?

I’ve edited your code 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 (').

Also in future please use the ask for help button as it will provide the full formatted code of your lesson and a link to the lesson.

Please can you link to the lesson you are stuck on?
