HTML How to Make a Website Creating HTML Content Create Navigation with Lists

1. What am I doing wrong?

Create a navigation element with an unordered list element after the link inside the header. Don’t add any list items or links just yet.

<nav> <ul> <li><a href=”index.html”>Portfolio</a></li> <li><a href=”about.html”>About</a></li> <li><a href=”contact.html”> Contact </a></li> </ul> </nav>

a little bit less information but, I think it should looklike

<div class="header">
  <a href=""></a>
  <ul>
  </ul>
</div>

normally you would put <li>("list item") tags between the <ul>("unordered list")tags but your task-setting ask without.

Hi Patrick,

sorry to resume the question above from Lee Ann. I tried to complete the first challenge (topic: How to Make a website, section: creating HTML content) as follows:

<header> <a href="index.html"> <nav> <ul></ul> </nav>

But this seems to be wrong. It always says: "Be sure to add a <nav> element after the link in the header." Well, that's actually what I did... And there is no other link included within the header. So, I really have no idea what the problem is. :)

Just now I found your answer and I have to say that it is not really clear to me. So could you maybe explain this a bit in more detail. Because I have to add those codes within a template from Nick Pettit's code challenge.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Cheers, Sarah

Nice pic. The lessons have not mentioned "div class" or "div" yet...

This is the question that I am trying to answer. Copied the wrong one above.

Link each of the three list items. Portfolio should go to “index.html”, About should go to “about.html”, and Contact should go to “contact.html”. My "wrong" answer: <nav> <ul> <li><a href=”index.html”>Portfolio</a></li> <li><a href=”about.html”>About</a></li> <li><a href=”contact.html”> Contact </a></li> </ul> </nav>

Well 1. you need a list, then you to put a link in every list item to link to the certain side.

......
<ul>
    <li><a href="firstside.html">AnyName</a></li>
    <li><a href="secondside.html">AnotherLink</a></li>
    <li><a href="third.html">LastlinkfromList</a></li>
</ul>
......

greetings Patrick
