Apply Functional Programming to Convert Strings to URL Slugs - Not Passing the Test Cases with correct code

Tell us what’s happening:
My code is working for all the test cases but I am not able to clear all of them at the same time.
Anyone facing the same issue? Is it some kind of a bug in the code?

Your code so far


// the global variable
var globalTitle = "Hold The Door";

// Add your code below this line
function urlSlug(title) {
   var result = globalTitle;
  return result.toLowerCase().trim(" ").split(/\s+/).join("-"); 
   
}
// Add your code above this line

var winterComing = urlSlug(globalTitle); // Should be "winter-is-coming"

It’s passing all cases when you return on the title parameter instead of creating a new variable result.

[spoiler]```
function urlSlug(result) {
return result.toLowerCase().trim(" “).split(/\s+/).join(”-");
}

Thanks a lot buddy! This solved it.
I was using another variable as it was told that we should not modify the global variable in functional programming.

This is my solution:

// the global variable
var globalTitle = "Winter Is Coming";
function urlSlug(title) {
 return title.toLowerCase().trim().split(/\s+/g).join('-')
}

var winterComing = urlSlug(globalTitle); // Should be "winter-is-coming"
