Python Flask with SQLAlchemy Basics Creating a Basic Website with Flask Template Inheritance

hi guys! im lost on this exercise, can anybody help me

Check out layout.html. It has a block named 'link'. Inside of index.html, you need to create this link. Below the extend, add the syntax for block link. Inside of the block, create a link/anchor tag <a href=""></a>. The text inside of the link tags should be Contact.

index.html
{% extends "layout.html" %}
<a href={%project.url%}><li>Contact</li> </a>
layout.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
    <head>
        <meta charset="utf-8">
        <meta name="description" content="Treehouse code chalenge practice.">
        <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
    </head>
    <body>
        <h1>Practice Template Inheritance</h1>
        {% block link %}{% endblock %}
    </body>
</html>

You got step 1 of the Challenge correct, good work!

You need a little work in step 2... below is a hint.

In step 2, you are going to need to make a block inside index.html. Then, inside the block you need to put in the hyperlink HTML and label it with Contact

{% extends 'layout.html' %}
{% block link %}
<a href="">Contact</a>
{% endblock %}

In step 3, you are going to modify the actual link with {{ url_for('contact') }}

I leave that step for you!
