Build a Palindrome Checker Project - Build a Palindrome Checker

When I am passing all test cases in the input manually, it is working but free code camp is still giving me an error. Please help me to find a solution to pass this test.

Your code so far

<!-- file: index.html -->
<html lang="en">
    <meta charset="utf-8" />
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0" />
    <title>Palindrome Checker App</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" src="styles.css"/>
    <input id="text-input" type="text" value=""/>
    <button id="check-btn">Check</button>
    <div id="result"></div>
    <script src="script.js"></script>
/* file: styles.css */

/* file: script.js */
const checkButton = document.getElementById("check-btn");
const textInput = document.getElementById("text-input");
const resultElement = document.getElementById("result");
let input = "";
let textValue = "";
let originalText = "";
let reversedText = "";

textInput.addEventListener("change", (event) => {
  // converting user input into lowercase and removing any spaces between the words.
   input = (
  textValue = input.toLowerCase().split(" ").join("");

// removing any punctuation from user input
  const punctuation = /[\.,!?]/g;
   originalText = textValue.replace(punctuation, "");
   reversedText = originalText.split("").reverse().join("");

checkButton.addEventListener("click", () => {

  if(textValue === ""){
    alert("Please input a value");
    else if(originalText === reversedText){
    resultElement.innerText = input +" is a palindrome";
  } else if(originalText !== reversedText){
      resultElement.innerText = input +" is not a palindrome";

Like you said eveything works except the test itself. Try reporting to FCC support for a possible solution. To do that just post it using the support forum. Good luck

Try removing your comments and see what happens. Sometimes the tests don’t seem to handle comments very well.

Nothing happened. Does not go through.

What is the error you are getting?
