attributes go in the opening tag

you have not given any attributes to option like this


Hi really sorry I’m a beginner but I have tried the code in the exact way you have put it and it’s still not right. thanks again.

Sorry I’m really confused what do you mean I haven’t given any attributes?

You have to give value attribute in option tag. But you are using value as a tag.
Example of adding attribute in a tag:

<option value="I am a value">I am an option</option>

Here option is a tag and value is an attribute and I am a value is the actual value of the value attribute.


Oh I see, solved it now thanks for your help and quick response.

the code was your code, not code to copy

Yh I got a little confused thanks for your help
