Palindrome Project (Help Needed)

I don’t know why I’m not passing the user stories. This whole Javascript block has been frustrating. Help

//JS code:

const textInput = document.getElementById('text-input');
const checkBtn = document.getElementById('check-btn');
const result = document.getElementById('result');

function cleanInputStr (str) {
  const regex = /[^a-zA-Z\g\s\i:]/;
  return str.replace(regex,'');

function manipulateText(cleanText) {
  const reverseText = cleanText.split('').reverse().join('');
  return reverseText;


function validate() {

  const inputText = textInput.value;
  const cleanText = cleanInputStr(inputText);

  if (inputText === "") {
    resultText = `Please input a value`;
  } else {
    const reverseText = manipulateText(cleanText);
    if (cleanText === reverseText){
    resultText = `${inputText} is a palindrome`;
    } else {
    resultText = `${inputText} is not a palindrome`;
  result.innerText = resultText;
checkBtn.addEventListener ("click", validate);  


The challenge seed code and/or your solution exceeded the maximum length we can port over from the challenge.

You will need to take an additional step here so the code you wrote presents in an easy to read format.

Please copy/paste all the editor code showing in the challenge from where you just linked.

Replace these two sentences with your copied code.
Please leave the ``` line above and the ``` line below,
because they allow your code to properly format in the post.

Palindrome Builder

I would have the console pane open when you run the tests. It should be telling you some things you need to fix.

It only shows the stories which I am not passing and offers them up as help like "when eye typed in the result should say eye is a palindrome. There’s literally no help in anything JS on this website. I’ve digressed to learning on ChatGPT to understand what I’m doing.

Hmm. I just tested your JS and the error I see in the console pane is “ReferenceError: assignment to undeclared variable resultText”.

That’s more help than I’ve gotten throughout this whole block of lessons
