Hi Vicki. Just a typo. Inside the textarea you can't use input field like this. Plese delete inside the input field. Just creat a textarea element. After when you create a button write the text "Submit Comment" so please fixed your button text. Hope this help.

<textarea type="text" id="comment" name="user_comment"></textarea>
