Task 4: Submit button

I honestly do not know what I'm doing wrong but I can't move on. I keep getting a "must be added within form element" error but I thought that's what I was doing.

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <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 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>

        <button type="submit"></button>

      </form>

  </body>
</html>

Oh also, yes I did put the "Place Order" text in too but that didn't work either.

Try closing your <select> element before your submit button.
