Within the form_for block, output a label for the name field.

I'm not necessarily understanding what this question is asking. Because didn't I call the "label" method in the first part of the challenge when I wrote "f.label.name" in the div?

<%= form_for(@pet) do |f| %>
<div class="name">

<% end %>

You're really close, a couple of things to note here.

  • don't forget to close your </div>
  • the .label method is embedded ruby, so don't forget to add your erb tags (<%= ruby_here %>)
  • I don't think there is a .name method for forms. You can identify the params using :name instead.
<%= form_for(@pet) do |p|%>
    <%= p.label :name %>
    <%= p.text_field :name %>
<% end %>
