Challenge: Check Radio Buttons and Checkboxes by Default

Link to the challenge:

Yeah so, I guess, you might want to just add a space after the " and checked term

<label for="indoor"><input id="indoor" type="radio" name="indoor-outdoor" value="indoor" checked> Indoor</label>

Thanks, and please tell me if it worked, and if not then also please reply, I would love to help you further

When I post your code into the challenge it passes no problem.
Some extensions that change the appearence of websites as well as adblockers are known to sometimes cause issues with these tests.

Yeah, external software and extensions tend to collide with the in-site text editor and tests

Thank u! i tried but nothing change :confused:

Try an incognito browser and see if that fixes it.

i tried also that. i blocked adblock and the other extensions but the problem remains :frowning:

thank u, but nothing happens ahahah i don’t know

Can you give us the exact error message you’re receiving?

et voilà: “You should not change the inner text of the Indoor label.”

Try removing the space before Indoor.


That’s the only thing I can think of. If it still fails then it looks like you’ve encountered a bug.

I’m having the same exact issue and that did not allow me to pass the test.

The odd thing is that in the results pane to the right I can see that “Indoor” and “Loving” have default checks, but it’s saying that I should not change the inner text of the Indoor label. Except the input section that I need to change is inside the label.

Definitely sounds like a bug then! I’m sorry you’re both experiencing this. That’s definitely not the norm.

I’m having the same issue and I know I typed it in right! Please let me know if anyone has a solution.

@lasbabbara, your version of Chrome is old. Try updating it.

On a related note, have you tried using a different browser?
