Basic HTML and HTML5: Link to External Pages with Anchor Elements

You can use anchor elements to link to content outside of your web page.

anchor elements need a destination web address called an href attribute. They also need anchor text. Here's an example:

<a href="https://freecodecamp.org">this links to freecodecamp.org</a>

Then your browser will display the text "this links to freecodecamp.org" as a link you can click. And that link will take you to the web address https://www.freecodecamp.org.

Create an a element that links to http://freecatphotoapp.com and has "cat photos" as its anchor text.

<h2>CatPhotoApp</h2>
<main>
  <a href="http://freecatphotoapp.com">cat photos</a>

  <img src="https://bit.ly/fcc-relaxing-cat" alt="A cute orange cat lying on its back.">

  <p>Kitty ipsum dolor sit amet, shed everywhere shed everywhere stretching attack your ankles chase the red dot, hairball run catnip eat the grass sniff.</p>
  <p>Purr jump eat the grass rip the couch scratched sunbathe, shed everywhere rip the couch sleep in the sink fluffy fur catnip scratched.</p>
