Where is the training on how to update an HTML form to use a post request?

I just started the Sinatra module. I am stumped on what to do with the first Sinatra task. I would like to go back and learn about using get and post to update an HTML form. Please direct me to the module containing the get and post training needed to accomplish the first Sinatra module task.

Hey William Wilson 👋

We have an entire course in the library dedicated to HTML Forms, the method is specifcially mentioned in the video about the form element

You'll want to add a method attribute to the form element and give it a value of post:

<form method="post">

Hope this helps! 😃
