Learn HTML Forms by Building a Registration Form - Step 40

Tell us what’s happening:
I genuinely don’t understand what its asking me to do here unfortunately. Any help would be much appreciated!

Its asking me this- " Give each submittable element a unique name attribute of your choosing, except for the two radio inputs."

  **Your code so far**

Challenge: Learn HTML Forms by Building a Registration Form - Step 40

Link to the challenge:

This is an example code:

<label for="age">Input your age (years): <input id="age" type="number"/></label>

We have an input of the type number, which we will use to get the user’s age.

When the user sends this number, how do we know what this number means? By using the name attribute, like this:

<label for="age">Input your age (years): <input id="age" type="number" name="age"></label>

Now when we receive that input from the user, we know it is his/her age because we gave it the name attribute of age

So you just need to give each input a name related to the information the user is providing you. If you are asking for the user’s email, give the email input a name of email, and so on.

Do that for each input, including text area and file inputs.

@itsDNMN you need to add a name attribute In all input tags except except for the two radio inputs

“You should give the file a name attribute.”

That is what the hint says. I don’t know what file its talking about.

Here, you’re using an input element of the file type.

<input id="profile-picture" type="file"/>

When you receive this file from the user, how do you know what it is? Give it a name attribute. :slight_smile:
