[HELP] Code Challenge: Adding Point Markers to a Map 4/6 - geocode

Hello, I am stuck here... could you help me? I really don't know what I was doing wrong...

---------here is my code---------

    var mapOptions = {
        center: new google.maps.LatLng(28.42, -81.58),
        zoom: 18,
        mapTypeId: google.maps.MapTypeId.SATELLITE

    var mapElement = document.getElementById("map");
    var theMap = new google.maps.Map(mapElement, mapOptions);
    var markers = new Array();
    var geocoder = new google.maps.Geocoder();
    var bounds = new google.maps.LatLngBounds();
    var geocoderOptions = {address: "Magic Kingdom, Disney World"};
    geocoder.geocode(geocoderOptions, function(results, status){
      if(status == google.maps.GeocoderStatus.OK) {
       var location = results[0].geometry.location;
       var marker = new google.maps.Marker( {map: theMap, position:results[0]});

Hi Y H,

We updated the code challenges earlier today and it looks like the above code is similar to the old one plus the new one. It does look like an error on our end with var location instead of var addressLocation.

So you can try again here

I'll give you a Bug Squasher Badge :)
