Not sure why the challenge will not accept the answer I've given, need a confirmation

The challenge on part 2 gives me an error of task 1 is no longer running.

I'm pretty sure I placed in the correct answer for the code to draw upon the title attribute in an img instead of what was originally the alt as it alluded that I needed to change, but once I submit it I get an error that task 1 is no longer running, which was adding a $event.preventDefault(); line.

Of course those two things aren't affecting each other, or shouldn't be, so I don't know why or what to do to complete the challenge.

It looks like someone's reintroduced an issue we sorted out before. The captions in the lightbox are wrong. For example, it's showing "Image of Space Juice" rather than "Space Juice by Mat Helme".

//Problem: User when clicking on image goes to a dead end
//Solution: Create an overlay with the large image - Lightbox

var $overlay = $('<div id="overlay"></div>');
var $image = $("<img>");
var $caption = $("<p></p>");

//An image to overlay

//A caption to overlay

//Add overlay

//Capture the click event on a link to an image
$("#imageGallery a").click(function(event){
  var imageLocation = $(this).attr("href");
  //Update overlay with the image linked in the link
  $image.attr("src", imageLocation);

  //Show the overlay.

  //Get child's title attribute and set caption
  var captionText = $(this).children("img").attr("title");

//When overlay is clicked
  //Hide the overlay

You are passing "event" argument to the function handling click event, so you should use event.preventDefault().
