Hi Randell,

I am having the exact same issue. I have done everything you said, but I’m still getting the error for #6.

I’ll attach the link to my project. Could you please tell me if anything is wrong?

Thank you so much!


I GOT IT!! I looked into Booklion’s HTML and made one change to “input type”:

<div class="form-group">
      <label id="email-label" for="email">Email</label>
             placeholder="Enter your email"

Before, I was using “input type=“text””. I actually put “type=text” because the sample survey form was using “text” for it. Can I ask why the sample was using “type=text” and not “type=email”? What’s the difference?

The difference is that the browser will be so kind and validate the entered data before letting you click the submit button. If someone enters myemail@provider or myemail/, the browser won’t let them send the data, because those aren’t valid email addresses. For inputs with type=text, there is no such validation. The user can enter whatever he wants.

The sample btw does use type=email, assuming that you’re referring to this codepen:

Ah I see. I understand now. Thank you so much!

Yes, I was referring to that codepen. It does say type=“email”… I might have seen it wrong, my apologies. Thank you again!
