HTML HTML Basics Structuring Your Content Structuring Content Challenge

I've placed the bottom two paragraphs in footer tags. What concept did I miss?

I've been having trouble with this exercise, any tips on what concepts I should revisit would be much appreciated. Thank you!

Hi there! Honestly? I don't believe you're missing any concepts here. What I do believe happened is you got a little carried away with a delete function or backspace key somewhere. Here's the offending line:

 <p>Follow me on <a href="#">Twitter</a>, <a href="#">Instagram</a> and <a href="#">Dribbble</p>

See that last link? It never gets closed before the last paragraph tag is closed, which is creating an error in your HTML. My instinct is that you got a little carried away when editing and somehow managed to delete that closing </a> tag.

Here's what it's supposed to look like:

 <p>Follow me on <a href="#">Twitter</a>, <a href="#">Instagram</a> and <a href="#">Dribbble</a></p>

Note the closing anchor tag immediately before the closing paragraph tag. When I put that into your code, it passes Step 2 with flying colors.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:

Hey Jennifer, was able to clear step 2 following your advice. Thank you for helping with that. Cheers!
