    Hello Forum,

    So… I’m having a problem with simple radio buttons (no jQuery or Javascript). I was learning on how to create radio buttons for a contact form and I basically followed what I saw. But for some reason, my radio buttons are grouping like they’re check boxes. Is there a reason why this is happening? Is the approach I’m taking at this correct or incorrect?

    Thanks in advance for the help,



    If you mean that selecting one checkbox doesn’t deselect the other, that’s because you gave them all a different name. If you want to “group” them, give them all the same name (and obviously each a different value).

    Additionally, you have everything (inputs and text labels) wrapped within a label; not really sematically correct. I would suggest to go with this structure:


    Hey @seniff I had a feeling I was doing something wrong. But what you explained did fix the problem. I should’ve known this… I’m going to try what you mentioned above for a better semantic approach.

    Thanks for your help!
