Error: exception java.io.IOException is never thrown in body of corresponding try statement

Hi, I'm getting the error "exception java.io.IOException is never thrown in body of corresponding try statement" due to the try/catch block below even though it's identical to the code in the video.

public CourseIdea(String title, String creator) {
        this.title = title;
        this.creator = creator;
        try {
            Slugify slugify = new Slugify();
            slug = slugify.slugify(title);
        } catch (IOException e) {

Looks like newer versions of Slugify don't throw IOException so you won't need the try/catch block for it.
