Please post a link to the challenge and explain what you mean by “to work”

My bad, thank you.

Thanks for posting the link.

Just one missing detail. What did you mean earlier when you said you can’t get the submit button to work?

So according to my knowledge, normally my code would be enough for the button to work, yes? But when I was doing the certification project, the website would not accept my code as correct.

I was missing these 3 criterias:

  • You should have an input or button element with an id of submit .
  • Your #submit should have a type of submit .
  • Your #submit should be a descendant of #survey-form .

Which is very weird.

You haven’t closed the textarea element, which causes the rest of your code to be some default text in the textarea. You will be able to see this in the preview. This causes the tests to fail.

Moreover you are not able to see the submit button. Once you fix your code you should be able to see the submit button

There are also some others syntax errors as mentioned below.

I think it is happening because of the syntax errors in the code.
Copy the html to this site and check all the reported errors and try to fix them.

I believe this should help.


Thank you all so much for the help.
