Hi @karanbalaji !

Welcome to the forum!

Instead of this you need to use the textarea element.


Also, just as an aside.

The input element is an empty element, it does not take content. You can not nest a label element inside an input element. You can do the opposite though.

Thank you, this worked.

Ah it makes sense. Thank you for explaining :slight_smile: !

do any errors you seeing in adding textarea element …
Add your commets on here

This should not be an input type, it is simply:

<textarea name="comments" rows="3" cols="30" placeholder="All comments here..."></textarea>

It was already explained, did you read the thread?

<textarea> is its own element, there is no such thing as type="textarea" on an input element (valid types).

Use the <textarea> element instead.
