Hey everyone, I’m having a little issue with my wikipedia viewer project. When I give an input, “Canada” for example, it returns “undefined” in the console, but actually returns results for “undefined” from wikipedia lol. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks,

Marcel


#2

The following line is the problem:

var searchTerm = $("searchTerm").val();

After it executes, searchTerm has a value of undefined, because you are not correctly referencing the input with id=“searchTerm”. Take a look at this documentation to see where you went wrong.

Ok got it, I made a similar mistake before except last time I added a ‘#’ where it didn’t belong, this time I forgot one. Thanks again!
