Please if anyone can help with this

I keep getting this message…
The existing input element should be nested within a form element.

  **Your code so far**

<h2>CatPhotoApp</h2>

Challenge: Create a Form Element

Link to the challenge:

Hello @Quincy2 ,

I think your input element is missing an attribute… In addition, I’d put it below the form element line, so it is clearer

Hope it helps!

Hello @Quincy2,

The issue is that you updated the input tag that was provided into the code before you proceed to its update. I suggest you to rest the code to see how was the code or I can give it back to you:

Your <input> tag:

<input type="text">

The one inside the original code:

<input type="text" placeholder="cat photo URL">
