Challenge: Create a Form Element

Link to the challenge:

The input elements need to be inside the form element.

Look at the example code and do the same thing only using the input element that is in the starting code.

<form action=/"https://www.freecatphoto.com/submit-cat-photo."

The tag is missing the closing > and the action value has a / at the beginning and . at the end, that shouldn’t be there.

Also, the URL is just wrong. This is the URL your are asked to use.

https://www.freecatphotoapp.com/submit-cat-photo

what am i doing wrong

this is where i am at

Instead of the empty input element you have inside the form you have to use the existing input element that is in the starting code. You can reset the challenge to get it back if you deleted it.

This is the existing input element you have to use:

<input type="text" placeholder="cat photo URL">

You can just replace the empty input element with it.
