Learn HTML Forms by Building a Registration Form - Step 34

Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here.

I am at the section where it is telling me to nest a select element ( with option) in a label element. Inside a label element add the text how did you hear about us? And the select element should come after the text.

I have tried various combination and really stuck. Either on the wording or I am not understanding something. What I put in for the code is below.

How did you hear about us?<?option>

I keep getting message saying I should nest the select element with a label element.

Thanks for any input. I am new at coding and sometimes taking a break helps but this one I am spinning wheels. Thanks again.

Your code so far

Please follow all the instructions including this one:

The text should come before the select element.

[quote=“joscarproductions, post:1, topic:580237”]

<option><label>How did you hear about us?<select /label></option>

 option label How did you hear about us <select /label/option>

 <option><label>How did you hear about us?<select /label></option>` 

Thanks for the response. I did put the text before the select element which is nested in a closing label element, and it says I should nest the select element with a label element. Don’t you nest it like <select/label> and this is after the text.

Thanks you again for the response.

I’ve edited your code 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 (').

please click the reset button to return the code back to its initial state.

Then look in the editor for this code:


This is the code that should be nested inside the new label element.

Thank you for helping. I was trying to figure out how to show what I type out for the code solution but I noticed it was leaving out the html elements and I couldn’t figure out how to do the quote in the form response. Thanks again.

Thank you hbar1st. That is what I needed was a cookie crumb. I figure it out and was over thinking it and the solution was easier than what I was typing. Thank you so much. I was stuck on that one for a few days.
