Problem with "Style Text Inputs as Form Controls"

I can’t pass the first two cases on this challenge. They are:

  1. Give the submit button in your form the classes btn btn-primary.
  2. Add a within your submit button element.

Here’s the relevant code section:

<input class="form-control" type="text" placeholder="cat photo URL" required>
<button class="btn btn-primary"><i class="fa fa-paper-plane"></i>Submit</button>

What am I doing wrong?

Hey @gregwilliams87, not sure if you still need help on this, but I just came across the exact same problem and got some answers from the Gitter forum (

Apparently you still need to include the class of type=“submit” within the button element. So the entire thing would look like:
<button class="btn btn-primary" type="submit"><i class="fa fa-paper-plane">"</i>Submit</button>

I don’t know if every form element still requires you to include the type class even when you use Bootstrap, but hopefully this helps!

Thanks, this helped me!!! :slight_smile:
