Product Landing Page Submit Success Confirmation

I’m currently working on the product landing page, and user story #12 states " When I click the #submit element, the email is submitted to a static page (use this mock URL: that confirms the email address was entered and that it posted successfully. " I have no problem understanding the submission portion (form action=“mockURLhere”). What I’m having trouble with is sending back a confirmation saying the email address posted successfully. Upon inspection of the example CodePen ( ) I couldn’t find anything regarding what happens after the submission, and when you click submit on the CodePen it takes you to another page. Can I use somthing like ‘onsubmit’ to return that the email posted successfully to the mock static webpage? Or would I have to do some sort of server side validation for that? Extra information: I’m using a modal for the email submission so I plan to clear the content of the modal after submission and display “Your email has been submitted, thank you!”. If there’s anything I should know regarding this, I’d appreciate it! (I come from a Java and C++ background. I’m used to local validation and if statements but I also haven’t coded those in years. lol) Any and all help is appreciated, thank you!

See the lesson " Basic HTML and HTML5: Use HTML5 to Require a Field", there is no action after clicking the submit button.

So there’s no way for me to verify that whatever data I’m submitting to the mock URL has successfully made it there?

For this challenge, it isn’t necessary.

Oh, yeah. I know it’s not part of the requirements. I’m just trying to be an overachiever and teach myself stuff outside of the requirements of the project. :laughing:
