Task 1 is no longer passing.
Why is Task 1 no longer passing? I did not make any changes to the code for task 1.
const contentDiv = document.getElementById("content"); let newParagraph = document.createElement("p"); newParagraph.className = "panel"; contentDiv.appendChild("newParagraph");
<!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>

Hi there, Kawi! You're doing great! The most common reason to get a "Task 1 is no longer passing" is due to a syntax error. At this point, none of your code can be interpreted which makes all the code invalid. That is what is happening here.

newParagraph in quotes so that it is now a string instead of the node held in the variable
newParagraph Removing the quotes causes this to pass all steps.
