Challenge: Create a Form Element

Link to the challenge:

this is where im stuck BTW

// running tests The existing


element should be nested within a


element. Your


element should have well-formed open and close tags. // tests completed

Hello. Did you actually close your opening form tag?

(post deleted by author)

A tag is opened by using < and is closed by using > at the end of it.

this is a close </ form > right ?

oh at the first <form ? should be < form > ?

Correct. It needs the > at the end of the opening form tag.

Not <form> [bunch of other stuff] But rather like this:
<form [...bunch of other stuff...] ...>
<input yada yada...>

I’ve edited your post for readability. When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make it easier to read.

You can also use the “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) to add backticks around text.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard.
Note: Backticks (`) are not single quotes (’).
