  • Ok the step of that challenge: On the button element created in the last step add type attribute submit:

This is what you have:

 <form action="index.html" method="post">
      <input type="text" id="name" name="user_name"> 
      <textarea id="comment" name="user_comment"></textarea>
      <button>Submit Comment</button> <!-- This is the button with the type submit-->
      <button type="Submit"></button> <!-- This doesn't have to exist -->
</form>

And you need something like this:

 <form action="index.html" method="post">
      <input type="text" id="name" name="user_name"> 
      <textarea id="comment" name="user_comment"></textarea>
      <button type="submit">Submit Comment</button> <!-- This is the button with the type submit-->
</form>
