HTML jQuery Basics (2014) Creating a Simple Lightbox Preventing the Default Behavior and Using attr()

Can't get answer right, question 2 of 2

$("#imageGallery a").click(function(event){ event.preventDefault(); var href = $(this).atr("href");

This was the code I entered... it is what I did in the video as I followed along with his solution.. It doesn't pass though. What am I doing wrong?

It should be attar("href") not atr("href").

Looks like you are missing a closing curly bracket '}' as well.

I am a HORRIBLE speller! I caught the 'atr' != 'attr' thing about 1 minute after posting. Thanks for following up though! [I promise not to make fun of you for your little spelling issue:P]
