I keep getting a parse error in the challenge, but when I try it using my own html file in the chrome browser, it works.

The code works fine when I'm not using treehouse's challenge page.

Is this a bug in treehouse?

script.js
let secret = "";
let correctGuess = false;

do {
  secret = prompt("What is the secret password?");
  if (secret === "sesame") {
      correctGuess = true;
  }
} while ( ! correctGuess);
document.write("You know the secret password. Welcome.");

var secret;

do { secret = prompt("What is the secret password?") } while ( secret !== "sesame" ) document.write("You know the secret password. Welcome.");
