When told to place the h2 element inside a main header I keep getting an error that task 1 is no longer working.

I have no idea what I'm doing wrong.

Hi James, as you said above, you need to place the h2 element inside the header. Where you have placed the h2 is just outside of it. HTML blocks start with an opening tag and a closing tag, and everything in-between those two tags are inside that element:

<header>
<!–– Everything in between these tags are inside the element -->
</header>

Hope that helps!!

It says: place the h2 and articles inside an element that represents the main content of the <body> of the page. Are you placing the h2 and articles in <main>?

Yes I had placed them inside <main> but ''</main> kept getting an error wouldn't close. I eventually got it right by deleting everything and starting from scratch but I still don't know what I did differently.
