JavaScript JavaScript and the DOM (Retiring) Making Changes to the DOM DOM Manipulation

Not sure what I am missing here. It looks correct to me.

Even with other peoples examples they appear to be the same. Am I missing some little detail?

app.js
const contentDiv = document.getElementById("content");
let newParagraph = document.createElement('p');
newParagragh.className = "panel";
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
    <head>
        <title>DOM Manipulation</title>
    </head>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css" />
    <body>
        <div id="content">

        </div>
        <script src="app.js"></script>
    </body>
</html>

It looks like you have a typo:

const contentDiv = document.getElementById("content");
let newParagraph = document.createElement('p');
newParagragh.className = "panel";

change to

newParagraph.className = "panel";

You just have a typo.

You wrote "newParagragh" (ending in "gh") instead of "newParagraph" (ending in "ph").
