Learn String Manipulation by Building a Cipher - Step 50

Tell us what’s happening:

I have looked at all the read and search method threads and I cannot, for the life of me, figure this one out. I appreciate the help, thank you in advanced.

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)

Welcome to the forum @Yumiyukai

You indented the function declaration.

Right after your shift variable, declare a function called caesar and indent all the following lines to give your new function a body.

Happy coding

Thank you so much! I had to figure out the different indentations :smiling_face_with_tear:
