How do I define promt? When I try to replicate the video i just keep being told, ReferenceError: promt is not defined

I'm just trying to replicate the video and having no luck. Is it possibly my version of Chrome?

The method is called prompt(). You can use it like this:

var visitorName = prompt('What is your name?');

Just judging from your question, are you spelling 'prompt' correctly?
