Survey Form Assignment

Hello Everyone,
I went through the responsive web design course over the last couple of weeks and now I am working on the Survey form assignment. I am having a lot of trouble with styling form so that I have the text on top followed by a longer box beneath it ( like the example). Iv been using various resources to try and figure out the right properties to use to get the page they way I want it but am having little luck. If anyone could help out it would be greatly appreciated. I can provide both my html and css thus far if that would be useful. Thank you in advanced!

@ederk, it’s easier if you provide a link to your live code so that we don’t have to copy/paste your code.
When you submit your project it has to be a live link so you can provide that link.

I’m not sure I understand your issue. When I look at your code I see the following (screenshot attached)
Screen Shot 2022-03-21 at 02.00.39
which is what you say you want to achieve.

Some suggestions;

  • don’t take code from the sample project. The samples show one way to complete the project. The instructions say to make yours “functionally similar” and to “give it your own personal style”
  • Keep the test script when forking the pen (<script src="https://cdn.freecodecamp.org/testable-projects-fcc/v1/bundle.js"></script>)
    The test script, with all tests passing, should be included when you submit your projects.
    Before styling, it’s best to pass as many user stories as you can. For this project all user stories can pass prior to doing any styling.

So I have been doing all the code via vs code then copying and pasting into code pen to run the tests and submit the project. Are you asking for a link from code pen? I have made everything myself, I have used a couple of the class declarations from the example for targeting purposes but other than that been keeping it to my design. I personally just dont like how it looks on the screen and like how the example has these long boxes that take up the center of the screen. That is what I am looking to do. Expand the text boxes and make them longer and larger and then format the submit button to be centered and take up majority of the center block.

@Roma my mistake for the confusion, thought pasting the code would be helpful heres the updated link to codepen. I got the entry bars the way I like for now. Now my submit button is off the screen. Cant figure out how to expand my block to fit it. Have already tried playing with the margins and padding in .form-control and #container and did not get the results that I am looking for.
