Learn String Manipulation by Building a Cipher - Step 50

Tell us what’s happening:

I have tried to change the indentation and the function multiple times but have not managed to find the correct answer. I am not sure where I have gone wrong. Any help or hints would be greatly appreciated.

Your code so far


# User Editable Region

text = 'Hello Zaira'
shift = 3
def caesar():
     alphabet = 'abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz'
     encrypted_text = ''

     for char in text.lower():
     if char == ' ':
     encrypted_text += char
    
     else:
        index = alphabet.find(char)
        new_index = (index + shift) % len(alphabet)
        encrypted_text += alphabet[new_index]

     print('plain text:', text)
     print('encrypted text:', encrypted_text)
