Very close, you simply need to move the alert call into the shout.js file, not in the html :).

luckius kajoka Hi there! The answer left by Daniel Languiller is partially correct. You are close and yes, you will need to move the alert() line into your shout.js file. When you open up the challenge if you look at the top you will see two tabs going horizontally. In workspaces, your files are listed on the left, but in challenges they are displayed as tabs across the top. The shout.js file is where you want that line of code.

However, there is one problem in your HTML. You have one opening <script> tag, but two closing </script> tags. You should only have one closing </script> tag.

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
