JavaScript JavaScript Basics (Retired) Storing and Tracking Information with Variables Combining Strings

Not getting second line to show correctly when previewing.

I am typing what is shown on screen but when I refresh the preview it will only show the name typed into the prompt and not "Hello". What am I missing?

var visitorName = prompt('What is your name?'); var message = "Hello " + visitorName; document.write(visitorName);

The last line is writing the contents of "visitorName", but the combined string is in "message".

Thank you! I honestly don't know how I missed that. I must have looked at it a thousand times.
