You will often find that small errors will cause the most problems in code.

Closing the brackets or the '</a>' being one of them.

When an error occurs, try to use google developer tools via the inspect element.

Hi, Megan!

You need to close the anchor tag, and at first you can use the # in the href. The first part of the challenge looks like this:

<li><a href="#">Menu</a></li>

The second part wants you to link the 'menu.html' to the href attribute, which looks like this:

<li><a href="menu.html">Menu</a></li>

Hope this helps!
