I added the label but where exactly am I supposed to put it if not before select or h1
<label>Shirt color</label> is that not right?
<!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <meta charset="utf-8"> <title>HTML Forms</title> </head> <body> <form action="index.html" method="post"> <label>Shirt Color</label> <h1>Shirt Order Form</h1> <select id="color" name="shirt_color"> <option value="red">Red</option> <option value="yellow">Yellow</option> <option value="purple">Purple</option> <option value="blue">Blue</option> <option value="green">Green</option> <option value="orange">Orange</option> </select> </form> </body> </html>
The instructions don't say it, but the label needs a
for attribute that connects to the id of the
select element. Take a look at how this example is structured as a reference:
<label for="cars">Choose a car:</label> <select name="cars" id="cars"> <option value="volvo">Volvo</option> <option value="saab">Saab</option> <option value="mercedes">Mercedes</option> <option value="audi">Audi</option> </select>
Let me know if this helps!
