It's not really a bug.It's just that your code has a few errors I believe this is what you are looking for to solve the challenge.

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html>

<head>

<title>Lists and Links</title>

</head>

<body>

<ul>

<li> <a href="cakes.html">Cakes</a></li>

<li> <a href="pies.html">Pies</a> </li>

<li> <a href="candy.html"> Candy</a></li>

</ul>  

</body>

Hi there,

You're missing the closing > for the anchor tag for the candy link

Yeah, but tha isn't the error, It is with the archor tag for the pies link

Ah gotcha - it's because your anchor tags are wrapping the list elements. It just wants you to wrap the text inside the list elements, not the <li>'s themselves. It can seem pedantic, but there is a functional difference to the user.
