Hi Lauren, it's fairly simple. What you're doing is adding to your code in step 4, which had you add a button:

<button>Submit Comment</button>

It wants you to add the type attribute after the opening tag: <button — note that I've removed the greater than >, and that is where you'll start with the type attribute, which gets the value of submit.

It's identical in how you did with the <input> and <textarea> elements.

Hope this helps you out. :smiley:

could you maybe post the passing code?

Lauren, if you're still having trouble, could you give me the code you've tried so far, and I'll provide a corrected version and explain it a little more for you.

<button>submit</button> you need to add type attribute with the value "submit" inside <button> element. like this <button type="submit">submit</button>
