Learn HTML by Building a Cat Photo App - Step 60

Tell us what’s happening: Like radio buttons, form data for selected checkboxes are name / value attribute pairs. While the value attribute is optional, it’s best practice to include it with any checkboxes or radio buttons on the page.

Add a value attribute to each checkbox. For convenience, set each checkbox’s value attribute to the same value as its id attribute

Did you have a question? You just repeated the directions and it doesnt look like you tried adding a value to the checkboxes. Is there something we can try and explain better?
