Challenge: Create a Form Element

Link to the challenge:

Do you have a question? What problems are you having?

I’m stuck on Create a From Element. I can’t clear the top requirement


What requirement do you not know how to fulfill? What have you tried? Is there a part that confuses you?

So THIS is the requirement I can’t seem to do,. I’ve thought the code below does that

form action=“”> </form

< and > are at the beginning and end of the statement above

Why did you take the input element out of the form?

Not sure what you mean. I took out the < and > symbols because with it the code disappeared

The input element is outside of the form. The form is empty. Why?

So what is wrong with this?

What do the failing tests say?

But that’s what I thought I had. What’s wrong with the code?

Looks like you had it right. You just added extra space. You also need the input element inside the form. Welcome to the FreeCodeCamp forums and happy coding!:smile:

Hello, your input element has to be nested within your form element

Thank you very much!


It is great that you solved the challenge, but instead of posting your full working solution, it is best to stay focused on answering the original poster’s question(s) and help guide them with hints and suggestions to solve their own issues with the challenge.

We are trying to cut back on the number of spoiler solutions found on the forum and instead focus on helping other campers with their questions and definitely not posting full working solutions.

You can post solutions that invite discussion (like asking how the solution works, or asking about certain parts of the solution). But please don’t just post your solution for the sake of sharing it.
If you post a full passing solution to a challenge and have questions about it, please surround it with [spoiler] and [/spoiler] tags on the line above and below your solution code.

@Roma Ok that is great to know. Sorry about that. I will take it down, as I am pretty sure he got through that challenge! Thanks!

Hi @landon.h.lloyd!

This question comes up a lot in the forum. Here is the hint that I usually give.

<!--This is nesting-->

You can try this next time for future posts.
