Hi, The problem here is that you are opening the '<img>' tags before you close the '<a>' tags. You need to add two '>'s:

<a href="https://www.youtube.com"<img src="img/facebook-wrap.png" alt="Facebook"/></a> <a href="https://www.youtube.com"<img src="img/twitter-wrap.png" alt="Twitter"/></a> right î here try: <a href="https://www.youtube.com"><img src="img/facebook-wrap.png" alt="Facebook"/></a> <a href="https://www.youtube.com"><img src="img/twitter-wrap.png" alt="Twitter"/></a>

Let me know if that works, James

<a href="https://www.youtube.com"<img src="img/facebook-wrap.png" alt="Facebook"/></a> <a href="https://www.youtube.com"<img src="img/twitter-wrap.png" alt="Twitter"/></a>

The Correct form is <a href="https://www.youtube.com><img src="img/facebook-wrap.png" alt="Facebook"/></a> <a href="https://www.youtube.com><img src="img/twitter-wrap.png" alt="Twitter"/></a>
