HTML How to Make a Website Creating HTML Content Create Navigation with Lists

The code challenge asked for <nav> & <ul> tags to be under the link within the header. I've done this, but get an error.

The code challenge asked for the <nav> & <ul> to be directly under the link in the header. I've done this, yet it returns an error when I submit saying "Be sure your <nav> element is directly after the link in the header." <header> <a href="index.html"> <nav> <ul> </ul> </nav> <h1> Nick Pettit</h1> <h2>Designer</h2> </a> </header>

That is currently what is in the Code Challenge. Thank you for your time.

Ah, this is the error. Your link ends after the closing tag. So, your nav and ul elements should be after that closing tag. Not before.

Oh okay!! That makes sense. Thank you for your help. I just now saw your comment, and that fixed my problem. Thanks once again.

It's after the closing link tag? < /a>

The closing </a> is already in place after the <h1> & <h2> tags. Yes the code challenge asks for there to be a nav & ul element after the link in the header.

Sean, here's how to post code on the forums. Start with 3 backticks (near your Esc key probably) and the language right after. Hit enter to start a new line, then paste your code. Once you've finished your code block, hit enter at the bottom and put another 3 backticks to close it.

  <h1>Paste your HTML code inside the triple backticks</h1>
```backticks here to end the code block

@Bryan H

Yes my code looks exactly like that. How do I go about posting my code? I initially typed it all out on my first post but I guess that's not displaying?

Like Mark said, you need to place the nav element after the </a>, otherwise it's inside, not below.

I'll edit my previous comment to show you how to post code in the forum.

You'll want your nav and ul elements after the closing < /a> tag. Otherwise, it's inside the link instead of after it.

Thanks for the helps guys! it worked. @Bryan H, yes please update your post or send me a link on how to post my code in the forum for future projects. Thanks once again guys.
