The anchor tags should go around the item names.

To turn the words into links, the words must be enclosed between the starting and ending anchor tags. If you end the anchor tag before the word, then there is nothing visible on the page that can be clicked on to activate the link.

So instead of :point_right: <li><a href="index.html"></a>Portfolio </li>
you might write :point_right: <li><a href="index.html">Portfolio</a></li>

The ending </a> tag should be after the text for the link. Try this : <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>

Yep the guys are right. You have written <li><a href="index.html"></a>Portfolio </li> It should say <li><a href="index.html">Portfolio</a> </li>

Hope this helps
