There is no hint but simply a repeat of the instructions. ???

Not sure about you guys but I kept putting in the title of the example and not what they wanted me to put in. I kept putting “cat-photo-app” and not “cat-photo-form”.

Also, drop the addition of “form id=blahblahblah” and just put “id=blah” right after the action element but before the end arrow.

“form action=”/submit-cat-photo" id=“cat-photo-form” " Minus the outside quotes obviously.

Cheers!

Thank you, it worked but I don’t understand why it works with NO quotation marks while the class action="/submit… HAS quote marks!!!

This worked too:

I think I'll try without quotation marks, too!
