HTML

HTML Basics Section Tag challenge. What am I missing.

According to the hint section I have it correct. and According to some of the post here I looked up I have it correct.

Place the ul, h1 and p elements at the top of the page inside an element that represents a group of introductory content.

<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <link href="styles.css" rel="stylesheet"> <title>My Portfolio</title> </head> <body> <header> <ul> <li><a href="#">About</a></li> <li><a href="#">Work</a></li> <li><a href="#">Contact</a></li>
</ul> </header>
<h1>My Web Design & Development Portfolio!</h1> <p>A site featuring my latest work.</p>

<section>
<h2>Welcome</h2> 
<p>Fusce semper id ipsum sed scelerisque. Etiam nec elementum massa. Pellentesque tristique ex ac ipsum hendrerit, eget feugiat ante faucibus.</p>
<ul>
  <li><a href="#">Recent project #1</a></li>
  <li><a href="#">Recent project #2</a></li>
  <li><a href="#">Recent project #3</a></li>     
</ul>
</section>

<footer>
<p>&copy; 2017 My Portfolio</p>
<p>Follow me on <a href="#">Twitter</a>, <a href="#">Instagram</a> and <a href="#">Dribbble</a></p>
</footer>

It looks like you have the h1 and p elements outside of the closing header tag (</header>). The instructions say to place all 3 inside the header element. Move the h1 and p elements inside of the closing header tag. It should have the header tag, then the ul then the h1 and then the p element followed by the closing header tag.

I copied and pasted the wrong instructions here are the right instructions. "Place the content between the header and footer (h2, p and ul) inside an element that represents standalone sections of content." Thank you Dennis Grubbs

OK. Had to go back and redo the challenge. The header tags should go around the ul, li, h1, and p elements. The footer tag should go around the 2 p elements at the bottom. The section element should be in between the header and footer sections. In the pasted code you did have the h1 and p elements outside of the header tag.

The snippet below should be in between the header and footer sections.

That's what I am saying, my code is between the header and footer sections and it's not working.

For some odd reason it worked this this time
