Code doesn't work in Workspace, but does in Sublime

My code wasn't working in the Workspace when I was trying to test the variable "taskInput", I kept getting an error message "Uncaught ReferenceError: taskInput is not defined "

However, when I download the code, test it in Sublime, it works but then when I copy the same exact code (that was downloaded) and paste it into the Workspace, it doesn't work, I get the same error message. So, I'm sticking to Sublime.

Make sure var addButton is closed with a semicolon. var addButton; (in this particular video we didn't go over it yet, but wasn't closed) on my side.

It sounds very weird..

Can we have a look at the code that does not work?


I would copy and paste it here, but it doesn't seem to act accordingly. It renders all wonky and I don't see an attach button anywhere.
