JavaScript Build a Simple Dynamic Site with Node.js Creating a Basic Template Engine in Node.js A Simple Merge Utility

I tried my answer at eclipse and it worked fine but I got as a wrong answer. What is wrong on my implementation?

I can't find my error, could you help me?

var utilities = require("./utilities");

var mailValues = {};

mailValues.first_name = "Janet";

var emailTemplate = "Hi %first_name%! Thanks for completing this code challenge :)";

var mergedContent = utilities.merge(emailTemplate, mailValues.first_name);

//mergedContent === "Hi Janet! Thanks for completing this code challenge :)";
function merge(content, values) {
    var content=content.replace("%first_name%", values);
  return content;

module.exports.merge = merge;

Complete the implementation of the merge method in utilities.js file. You should be able to pass in a string with placeholders with percent signs (%) surrounding them. The second parameter should be an object with values to be inserted in to the placeholders. Look at index.js to see how it should work.

You don't forget use the for() loop. Inside the for loop, create a variable and save the value, like this,

content.replace("%" + ... + "%", ...)**. 

The points should be replaced. The division symbol must be added one by one. And finally return the variable. Hope this help.
