what is the issue preventing you from doing this?

Try to look at your preview pane. Every place that you see a button or a field or textarea that can be modified by the user of the form, that is a ‘submitable element’.
Identify all of these and add name attributes to them.

You should give the file a name attribute… PS I would have chosen file.

that’s the file input element. Make sure you have a name added to it.

Why is the name value empty?

Also there are multiple areas that still need name attributes.
If you just try to find these by looking at the preview pane and finding all the areas of the page that a user can type or select something, then you will have found all the submitable elements.

Making sense now, I tried adding values on the name attributes of the submittable elements and it worked. Thank you!
