HTML Build an Interactive Website Form Validation and Manipulation Checking Values

Front end web development - checking values Challenge : Create a method called 'isValidEmail' that takes one argument that returns true when a string with an '@' symbol is passed, false if not.

This code got accepted initially and then when I did the next challenge this code got rejected. Is it correct? This code appears in the smellslikebakin/contact.html page and works.

function isValidEmail(email){ return email.indexOf("@") != -1; }

Hi Sandy,

I've found that there is a quirk and sometimes it says that the previous task "is no longer passing" even when the previous code is exactly the same. It means that something you did on the current task is not right.

Good luck!

Thanx Jennifer,

I had already commented out the next challenge, so that only the code from the previous challenge was left. I guess I'll start the whole challenge again.

Kind regards

put that under a separate script tag maybe? <script type="text/javascript">
function isValidEmail (email) { return email.indexOf("@") != -1;} </script>
