Can somebody help me please with adding a button? I have no idea what is wrong inside that code.

    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>HTML Forms</title>
  </head>
  <body>


    <form action="index.html" method="post">
      <h1>Shirt Order Form</h1>
      <label for="color">Shirt Color</label>
      <select type="text" id="color" name="shirt_color">
        <option value="red">Red</option>

Check BUTTON syntax.

Hi Tina! -

The problem is with your <select>. You have not closed it, therefore your HTML is not valid. Place a closing </select> element before your button and you should pass the challenge.

Happy coding!
