Challenge: Learn HTML Forms by Building a Registration Form - Step 17

Sorry, your code does not pass. Keep trying.


The first input element should have an id of first-name.

I find the instructions for this step unhelpful. This module has been updated and in the old version the solution is more obvious.

Step 17

Following accessibility best practices, link the input elements and the label elements together using the for attribute.

Use first-name, last-name, email, and new-password as values for the respective id attributes.

Any chance of an example of how to use <input for?

Thanks in advance.

In your code, the attribute for (attribute is highlighted purple in your code) must have a value.

It cannot be just for. It has to be like for="somthing" or for="weather"

And the attribute for belongs in the label element, not the input element.

The id of the input and the for attribute of label has to be the same

More info here: HTML attribute: for - HTML: HyperText Markup Language | MDN

Hope it helps :pray:


Your id attribute value should be used for your for attribute value which will be located in it’s label element

The “for” attribute should not be inside the input element but inside the label element.


Thank you that’s done it.
