Learn HTML Forms by Building a Registration Form - Step 41

Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here.
The name attribute that it is asking me to input is already there, but it says that I still need to add it. “Give each submittable element a unique name attribute of your choosing, except for the two radio inputs.” is the problem and I do not know how to work around this. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Challenge: Learn HTML Forms by Building a Registration Form - Step 41

Link to the challenge:

Almost there ,

This means all input elements should be given a name attribute.
But as I can see from your code your input (type =file, number) and your text area are not given a name attribute.
Try to correct those areas.
Happy coding!

Can you please show a code sample cause i’m still a tad bit confused.

Not sure why you asked for a sample as you are adding the name correctly as you have done here for eg.

All you have to do is follow the hints. What do they say is missing?

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

Exactly, my inputs are correctly established but i still do not understand this properly.

This hint is telling you that you missed this input of type file.
To find the element they are talking about just look at your preview pane.
Somewhere in the form you created an input of type file (next to the profile picture label) So find th element and add name to it.

So basically i’m to change all type file names or just the profile-picture?

You are supposed to add a name attribute to the input tag of type file.
(Find it visually first by looking at the form and then map back into the code to see the actual code)

Done :+1:.

Hey you think we can connect out the platform?

I am available here and also on the fCC discord (which is a little less formal)
