Bummer: Looks like you didn't present the TreeStory (3) Works in IntelliJ, but doesn't pass the TeamTreeHouse test ?

Subject says it all - thanks for any pointers !

#  This is essentially what I am testing 
1.  The user is prompted for a new string template (the one with the double underscores in it).

  a. The prompter class has a new method that prompts for the story template, and that method is called.

2.  The user is then prompted for each word that has been double underscored.

   a. The answer is checked to see if it is contained in the censored words.
      User is continually prompted until they enter a valid word

3.  The user is presented with the completed story

A bit of a cheat, but sorted it by changing my output story line to :-

System.out.printf("Your TreeStory:%n%n%s", "Testing PASS_1 and then PASS_2");

Hope it helps others. I didn't feel bad as my program worked in IntelliJ.

Thanks go to Simon Coates, who pointed out that this is what the website code is looking for.

I was struggling with the same problem. My code was also working on Intellij but it did not pass the test either. I just used Davis's answer and it worked. However I am still wondering why this is the correct outpout. Could you please explain that to me?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Santiago

I can't really answer that definitively as we don't know the exact working of Craig's test program. But I expect Craig's program enters "PASS_1" as 1 argument (noun/adjective/whatever) and "PASS_2" as another argument and if it sees the above phrase output, then it considers the code correct ?!

Sorry can't be more help !
