Challenge: Use HTML5 to Require a Field

Link to the challenge:

The code that you show is the starting code for the challenge.

You have not entered the required field into the input element.

EDIT: I edited your code to show what you have in the “Describe your issue in detail here.”
When that is entered your code passes correctly for me.

The code you have shared works on my end. Please ensure that you have disabled any extensions that interface with the freeCodeCamp website (such as Dark Mode and Ad Blocker), and set your browser zoom level to 100%. Both of these factors can cause tests to fail erroneously.

Thank u Roma!! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Thank you.

When you do so make sure your code is there before clicking the button.


When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make it easier to read.

You can also use the “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) to add backticks around text.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard.
Note: Backticks (`) are not single quotes (’).
