Pig Latin Challenge Not Passing

Tell us what’s happening:
So, I have this code below, I’m not sure what I did wrong. When I tested it in my browser console and in CodePen, it worked just fine. Can anyone tell me why it’s not passing? Thank you :slight_smile:

Your code so far

function translatePigLatin(str) {
newStr = "";
if (str.search(/[aeiou]/) == 0) {
  newStr += str + "way";
} else if (/[aeiou]/.test(str) == false) {
  newStr += str + "ay";
} else {
  var index = str.search(/[aeiou]/);
  var consonants = str.substr(0, index);
  newStr = str.substr(index) + consonants + "ay";
return newStr;

Wow, that was a dumb mistake :expressionless: And I quadruple-checked every line except that one! Thank you so much! :smiley:
