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

Code Challenge

I'm stuck on a code challenge that asks me to link each of the three list items. Portfolio should go "index.html," About should go to "about.html," and Contact should go to "contact.html." How do I link each of my three list items?

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>Nick Pettit</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <header>
      <a href="index.html">
        <h1>Nick Pettit</h1>
        <h2>Designer</h2>
      </a>
      <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>
          <li>Portfolio</li>
          <li>About</li>
          <li>Contact</li>
          <ul>
          </nav>
    </header>
    <section></section>
    <footer>
      <p>&copy; 2013 Nick Pettit.</p>
    </footer>
  </body>
</html>

The code you wrote is correct except that you need to remove the last three list items that have no links.

remove these lines because they will just ruin your nav and add extra lines:

<li>Portfolio</li>
<li>About</li>
<li>Contact</li>

because the first three lines are enough:

<li><a href="index.html">Portfolio</a></li>
<li><a href="about.html">About</a></li>
<li><a href="contact.html">Contact</a></li>

Jason, you have all the pieces. It's just that you need to have only 3 list items, not 6, and the 3 need to be links:

        <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>

Note for students: Be sure to put in new code after entire a href code. Not just the first line. So, after the closing </a>

A note for the developers: Getting this error a lot during exercise:

There was a communication problem.

If you continue experiencing problems, please contact support at help@teamtreehouse.com.

Jason, by the way you are not closing your list items.
