DocsErrorsInvalid `<Link>` with `<a>` child

Invalid `<Link>` with `<a>` child

Why This Error Occurred

Starting with Next.js 13, <Link> renders as <a>, so attempting to use <a> as a child is invalid.

Possible Ways to Fix It

Run the new-link codemod to automatically upgrade previous versions of Next.js to the new <Link> usage:

npx @next/codemod new-link .

This will change <Link><a id="link">Home</a></Link> to <Link id="link">Home</Link>.

Alternatively, you can add the legacyBehavior prop <Link legacyBehavior><a id="link">Home</a></Link>.
