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

Task 1 is no longer passing. Not sure why

I'm adding the newParagraph element to contentDiv but just getting 'task 1 is no longer passing' Also tried reading the p elements within the new panel class into a variable called para and using contentDiv.appendChild(para); with the same result

Can someone show me where I'm going wrong?

app.js
const contentDiv = document.getElementById("content");
let newParagraph = document.createElement("p");
newParagraph.className = "panel";
let para = getElementsByTagName("panel p");
contentDiv.appendChild(newParagraph);
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>

Please notice that you already declared

const contentDiv = document.getElementById("content");

So you should use it in order to append your newParagraph -

contentDiv.appendChild(newParagraph);

I think you've got too much code there.

I tried the challenge with out the "let para = ...." declaration and it passes just fine
