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

Link to the challenge:

:balloon: Hi, welcome to the forum!
We see you have posted some code but did you have a question?

hello. I have aquestion for step 41: With form submissions, it is useful, and good practice, to provide each submittable element with a name attribute. This attribute is used to identify the element in the form submission.

Give each submittable element a unique name attribute of your choosing, except for the two radio inputs.

Don’t know what it’s asking from me.
can you help?

It means that you should give a name attribute to all elements that a user can modify (for eg input elements).

Look at the preview pane and try to fill out the form. Each item you can modify or fill out is a submittable element and needs a name.

The hint should also give you more clues.

same here. I tried to give names but it didn’t work.so I concluded that I didn’t understand the question at all, please I need help too?

Thank you.

You can hit the button “Check your code” first.
The hint will show you the answer.

  • Firstly, it will show " You should give the file a name attribute. PS I would have chosen file"
  • Secondly, it will show “You should give the number a name attribute. PS I would have chosen age
  • Thirdly, it will show you “You should give the Textarea element a name attribute. PS I would have chosen bio
    Your code will be written as pictured below:
