Hi just a quick question for y'all. I just started out learning the html coding but I can't seem to get the image to work for the quiz. I swear I'm doing it right as I reviewed it over and over. The quiz ask to add an image under the folder 'img' the picture being called 'cupcake.jpg' . Here is how I typed it:

   <img scr="img/cupcake.jpg">


I was thinking the the image is a self closing tag but closing it doesn't seem to work either.. Anyway any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!

html tags dont show up in forum posts. You will have to format it using the markdown cheatsheet which is linked under the text box when you edit your question/post a new answer or comment.

Hey Drew,

Just updated your post so your HTML tags show up ;) As Stone Preston mentioned, you need to format your code using the markdown cheat sheet. To define a code block, simply add 4 spaces before the line of code.

The img tag is a self-closing tag, but in this case, you're simply spelling the src attribute wrong. Fix that up, and you should be good!
