Hey @panagiotis200097, I think the first thing that stands out is that the form gets real skinny when I narrow my browser. It takes up about 1/3 of the page and then the other 2/3’s are empty space on the sides. I think you’ll want the form to take up all most all of the space on narrow view ports.

Thanks for replying i sawbthat on my phone but wanted and others opinions so i can start fixing all the issues

Your form looks okay @panagiotis200097. Some things to revisit;

  • Codepen provides the boilerplate for you. It only expects the code you’d put within the body element in the HTML editor. (No need to include the body tags). For anything you want to add to the <head> element click on the ‘Settings’ button, then HTML and add it into the ‘Stuff for <head>’ box.
    • Mainly mentioning because you have elements out of order. Everything the browser renders belongs within the body element. Review this for an understanding of the HTML boilerplate tags.
  • Run your HTML code through the W3C validator.
    • There are HTML coding errors you should be aware of and address.
    • Since copy/paste from codepen you can ignore the first warning and first two errors.
  • Codepen provides validators for HTML, CSS and JS. Click on the chevron in the upper right of each section and then click on the respective ‘Analyze’ link.
    • The one for CSS is good. Use it and address the issue(s).
    • (The one for HTML misses things which is why I recommend W3C)
  • Change the cursor to a pointer when hovering over the submit button
  • Do not use the <br> element to force line breaks or spacing. That’s what CSS is for.

I don’t often comment on someone’s styling but

  1. it would be nice if the choices in the dropdowns could be read without being cut off
  2. Maybe revisit this lesson. (it’s not just for radio buttons)
  3. The textarea doesn’t have much height. This is a bad UX as the user has to scroll up and down to review what they’ve written. I’m not saying that area has to be huge but maybe a few lines should be able to be read comfortably.

Thank you very much for the help!
