My tags aren't making a clickable link.

I've put my tags onto line 32 but when I refresh it won't make it a clickable link. I'm obviously missing something but I've looked it over a million times and it matches the one in the video. What should I do?

Can you post your code?

I'm wondering if somehow I accidentally erased something important.

Without Markdown formatting, I'm not sure which line is 32; but I noticed this anchor element, which may be what you are referring to:

<a>This is a third paragraph.</a>

Anchors only act as links when you add an "href" attribute. You can see examples of this in your navigation area for "Home", "Experience", "Contact", etc. Those are already working as links.

Crystal Maza — Glad to help. You can mark a question solved by choosing a "best answer".
And happy coding!

Steven is correct - don't forget to add an 'href=' to anchor tags!
