Adding an image tag

I have been attempting the image tag challenge and when I check my work, I am told to make sure to add an image tag to "img/numbers-01.jpg". Below is my answer. What am I doing wrong? Thank you.

<section> <ul> <li> <a href="img/numbers-01.jpg"> <img src="img/numbers-01.jpg" alt=""> </a> </li>
<li>
<a href="img/numbers-02.jpg"> <img src="img/numbers-02.jpg" alt=""> </a> </li> <li>
<a href="img/numbers-06.jpg"> <img src="img/numbers-06.jpg" alt=""> </a> </li> </ul> </section>

Hi Shawn, You code is correct in syntax, but for the challenge you added too much. The challenge wants you to add the images only to an unordered list, which you did... but you also added links to the images, which the challenge didn't ask for, therefore the compiler throws an error.

All you need is to change you ul to this:

    <section>
      <ul>
        <li>
            <img src="img/numbers-01.jpg" alt="">
        </li>    
        <li>  
            <img src="img/numbers-02.jpg" alt="">
        </li>
        <li>  
            <img src="img/numbers-06.jpg" alt="">
        </li>
      </ul>
    </section>

Hope that makes sense. (Remember the challenges are very strict in what they ask and what you put in).

Shawn;

Welcome to Treehouse!

For this challenge task you do not want your images to be links as well. Remove your anchor tags and just use the image tags and you should be fine.

As a bit of a heads up as you work through most challenges here at Treehouse, it is rather rare for a challenge to ask for one thing (image links) and want or accept additional items (anchor tags). Something to keep in mind as you go forward. :smile:

Happy coding,

Ken
