Why is this wrong

How is it that the section element is not between?

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <link href="styles.css" rel="stylesheet">
    <title>My Portfolio</title>
  </head>
  <body>

    <header>
      <section>
    <ul>
      <li><a href="#">About</a></li>
      <li><a href="#">Work</a></li>
      <li><a href="#">Contact</a></li>            
    </ul>
    <h1>My Web Design &amp; Development Portfolio!</h1> 
    <p>A site featuring my latest work.</p>

    </header>

    <h2>Welcome</h2> 
    <p>Fusce semper id ipsum sed scelerisque. Etiam nec elementum massa. Pellentesque tristique ex ac ipsum hendrerit, eget feugiat ante faucibus.</p>
    <ul>
      <li><a href="#">Recent project #1</a></li>
      <li><a href="#">Recent project #2</a></li>
      <li><a href="#">Recent project #3</a></li>     
    </ul>

<footer>
    <p>&copy; 2017 My Portfolio</p>
    <p>Follow me on <a href="#">Twitter</a>, <a href="#">Instagram</a> and <a href="#">Dribbble</a></p>
    </section>
      </footer>

  </body>
</html>

Good day!

I believe the step you are stuck on is 3. It's asking for you to 'place the content between the header and footer inside an element that groups together related sections of content.' You are correct that this is the <section> tag, but you have the opening and closing tags at the wrong spots.

You will want to put the opening <section> tag just AFTER the closing header tag. With that, you will want to put the closing </section> tag just BEFORE the opening footer tag. Doing so will put what's between the Header and Footer in it's own Section.

Please let me know if you need further assistance. :)

This code has a tag overlap. The section element starts inside the header, but the header ends before the section does.

Child elements must be completely inside their container (or "parent element").
