Learn String Manipulation by Building a Cipher - Step 38

Tell us what’s happening: I’m not sure what it wants me to do.

i’m not sure for to do everything in one if statement and I don’t know if its ok for me to use two and i dont know whats wrong with my ‘print (space!)’ line.

Your code so far

text = 'Hello World'
shift = 3
alphabet = 'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz'
encrypted_text = ''

for char in text.lower():
    if char == ' ':
        char == True
        if char != ' ':
            char == False
        print(space!)
    index = alphabet.find(char)
    new_index = index + shift
    encrypted_text += alphabet[new_index]
    print('char:', char, 'encrypted text:', encrypted_text)

What are you trying to do with the if statements? This logic does not seem to implement the instructions:

replace new_char with encrypted_text. Also, modify the print() call into print('char:', char, 'encrypted text:', encrypted_text)

Does not mention anything about these if statements, you can delete them.
