Code not working in brackets

ok so I copied all the working code from the workspace on treehouse into brackets and none of the js is working. what is going on?

Since you mentioned brackets, I'm assuming you're creating an array. Double check that the array is formatted properly: start by naming the array like you would a variable; make sure that any strings inside your array are enclosed in matching quotes (single or double) and that multiple values are separated by commas (don't put a comma after the last value); don't forget the semicolon after the closing bracket. Here's an example array that contains a string, a number, and a Boolean value:

var arrayName = [ 'string of words', 23, true ];

If that doesn't answer your question, perhaps you could copy the code into the comments. That way we can see what you're seeing and it will be easier to answer your question. :)

Oh okay, thanks Omar. I saw the question posted in the JavaScript section and didn't make the connection to a separate program.
