I can't get the links to go to facebook.com and youtube.com. It just goes to my index.html. Help please?

Here is the code

<footer> <a href "http://facebook.com"><img src="img/facebook-wrap.jpg" alt="Facebook Logo"></a> <a href "http://youtube.com"><img src="img/youtube-wrap.jpeg" alt="Youtube Logo"></a> </footer>

<a href '=' Have you added the = after the href?? That should be your problem fixed when it's added.

Marni Sucher -

You forgot the = in your href attribute.

<!DOCTYPE html>
                    <a href "http://youtube.com"><img src="img/youtube-wrap.jpg" alt="Youtube Logo"></a>
                   <a href "http://facebook.com"><img src="img/facebook-wrap.jpg" alt="Facebook Logo"></a>

Hi Marni. It doesn't look like your code has been added to your post. Can you try again please?

Are you just pasting your code?

yes. that doesn't work?

Hi Marni,

If you look to the bottom right of the text box you will see something that says Markdown Cheetsheet. If you don't understand that maybe this will make sense: How to display code at Treehouse

Either way if you are trying to add a link to html here is what you would use to reference a link: '<a href="www.website.com">link description</a>'

Lets try this again?

'''html <a href="www.website.com">link description</a> '''

for what?

okay that was not easy to do, but if any of you can help me figure out why the links go to my index.html page and not youtube and facebook, i would really appreciate it.

Thank you so much guys! Can't believe I missed that! :)

No problem. I basically followed up on what they all said, but basically so it made more sense to you. Keep on learning, like me :)
