HTML How to Make a Website Creating HTML Content Add Social Media Links

Having trouble completing the "add social media links" it says I have completed the steps and then it says "OH NO"

Having trouble completing the "add social media links" it says I have completed the steps and then it says "OH NO there is an error" which prevents me from finishing the step in tree house's eyes, It also tells me to contact the webmaster, which seems appropriate since it's obviously a communication error with the site. I contacted the webmaster and they told me to ask the forums... Previously I took a break because I assumed it was a traffic issue, however after two weeks it still halts in the exact same spot, so a traffic error seems unlikely. Please help this is a very frustrating issue, id much rather be challenged by code than frustrated by bugs.

I'm trying to pull up the page with the code challenge and I can't even get the page to load.

It doesn't look like you have any images added to the footer like the instructions say.

Please ignore the index, I'm aware it is not complete. It was complete, the site even told me it was correct behind the pop up error that made me refresh the challenge. The index was posted here because it posts automatically and I wrote the question after the error(which refreshed it). Can I send you a screenshot that would explain everything?

I'm quite convinced the issue here is one of tree house connectivity. It sounds like you were also having some problem connecting to the page? My Treehouse Workspace seems to disconnect frequently as well.

EDIT: I have discovered the edit function and corrected the html in this question

Is there something going on with Treehouse and the servers stability? I haven't been able to open a page or the workspace without getting a similar error or one that says there are connectivity issues for weeks. Id just like to clarify again that my problem is not one with the assignment but one with the site. Could you please refer me to someone who deals with the site architecture.

I have resolved the issue by using Firefox instead of Chrome.
