Just a quick note, on my Macbook Pro I have to hit cmd + return for the code to be posted to the chat.

also I do not need to type the second set of ticks as they are added automatically.

Perhaps this post needs updated?


Thanks for posting this little note @JTMKoenig Very helpful.

If you still have trouble, you can use this:
Just paste in the code, and press the button.
The backticks are added to your code and copied to the clipboard, ready to be pasted into the chat or wherever github markdown lives.

function convertToF(celsius) {
  var fahrenheit;
  // Only change code below this line
  9 / 5 * 30 + 32;
  // Only change code above this line
  return fahrenheit;

// Change the inputs below to test your code

// Change the words here to test your function

I’m trying to split strings with split. The task, you should split the string by its spaces is still marked x.
var string = “Split me into an array”;
var array = [];

// Only change code below this line.

array = string;
var array= string.split(‘s’);
