Tell us what’s happening:
I can’t figure out why my code won’t work. The outputs appear to match the outputs that the challenge requires. Cna someone help me out?

Your code so far


// the global variable
var globalTitle = "Winter Is Coming";

// Add your code below this line
function urlSlug(title) {
  var lower = title.toLowerCase();
  var arr1 = lower.split(" ");
  var arr2 = arr1.join("-");
  return arr2;
}
// Add your code above this line
var winterComing = urlSlug(globalTitle); // Should be "winter-is-coming"

For the test case of:

urlSlug(" Winter Is Coming")

your solution is returning:

"-winter-is--coming"

instead of the correct answer of:

"winter-is-coming"


#3

Hmm. When I execute the following code:

var globalTitle = "Winter Is Coming";

// Add your code below this line
function urlSlug(title) {
  var lower = title.toLowerCase();
  var arr1 = lower.split(" ");
  var arr2 = arr1.join("-");
  return arr2;
}
// Add your code above this line
console.log(urlSlug(globalTitle));

I get “winter-is-coming”.

How would I log the output “-winter-is–coming” so I can see what’s going on?


#4

Oh wait. I see that the output you mentioned is for a different test case.


#5

I was just showing you what your failing test case is returning.
