Why do my paragraph boxes under my photos have an invisible link that stretches throughout the width of the page?

I want it to be a link that you hover over the box and you can click it only when you do that. This page has the links that you can click even when you step away from the paragraph text. Does that make sense? Here's my code so you can understand it better. BTW I'm a beginner. So don't judge lol

write ``html at the begin and the same 3 at the end of your code so we can understand

Hi, Fixed the formatting of the code in your post. Check out this guide for help using markdown.

I think the paragraph tag within the anchor is causing the issue. You don't need to use it at all, you can just write it like this:

<ul>
  <li><a href="#"><img src="img/breaking-bad.jpg">Breaking Bad</a></li>
  <li><a href="#"><img src="img/the-wire.jpg">The Wire</a></li>
</ul>

Hope this helps!
