Hi @NateTheGreat ,

You have the placement of the form tags correct.
But you forgot about this part of the instructions :

Assign "https://www.freecatphotoapp.com/submit-cat-photo" to the action attribute of the form element.

I know, but i dont know where to put that or how to nest the input within that.

Oh, don’t worry. Just follow the example you have :

<form action="url-where-you-want-to-submit-form-data">
   <input>
</form>

ok, i get it now thanks a lot

To nest an element inside another element is to have it placed within the opening tags and closing tags of that element.

For example, in this code the input is nested inside the form.

Tell us what’s happening:
It is telling me i need an action attribute but I already have one.
