How to Nest your text input element within a form element?

Tell us what’s happening:

Link to the challenge:

Well, the instructions say:

Nest your text field inside a form element, and add the action="/submit-cat-photo" attribute to the form element.

So you are given code that includes the following line of code which we call a “text field”

<input type="text" placeholder="cat photo URL">
So you need to add code above and below that line to encase it in a ‘form’. The challenge explains how to declare a form. Try it and then post back with your effort and any problem you may still be having.

That’s not nesting.

Nesting in HTML means putting one set of tags into another. So the following is nesting an em element in a p element:


The ask is that your text field be nested in the form element. then add the attribute to the form element.

I uploaded a screenshot, because I cannot seem to be able to paste my code correctly. Please check my edited post :wink:

I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into the forum, precede it with a line of three backticks and follow it with a line of three backticks to make easier to read. See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard. The “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) will also add backticks around text.


You are almost there with the code you posted above. Look carefully, because you are missing a > for the opening form tag.

Thank you both. I got it :wink:

Just replying in case others search and need help. In the code above your beginning form element is incorrect. All elements must have a < and a >.

I am having trouble with ‘Nest your text input element within a form element’. I can’t see the code.
