HTML How to Make a Website Creating HTML Content Organize with Unordered Lists

Image tag?

This is my code for the challenge I'm on: <section> <ul> <li> <a href="img/numbers-01.jpg"> <img src="img/numbers-01.jpg" alt=""> <p></p> </a> </li> <li> <a href="img/numbers-02.jpg"> <img src="img/numbers-02.jpg" alt=""> <p></p> </a> </li> <li> <a href="img/numbers-06.jpg"> <img src="img/numbers-06.jpg" alt=""> <p></p> </a> </li> </ul> </selection>

I think its correct but i keep getting a red pop up that says "make sure you include an image tag that displays “img/numbers-01.jpg”." what am i doing wrong?

Check the answer to a similar question here.

I think it wants just the img tags, not wrapped in a tags as in the example code.

BTW, I found that answer by clicking the "Organize with Unordered Lists" link at the bottom of the question, which I assume shows other questions about this same exercise, and then did cmd/ctrl+F searches for "img" and "image".

How to quickly and efficiently search for answers to a problem is one of the most underrated and hard to teach skills in web dev, IMO. The chances are good that someone else has already solved your problem, and you might as well find their solution and move on with your day.
