Why is this not working?

This works when i press preview. I've tried restarting the browser, signed out. Yet it still won't work. I have continued on with the rest of the course but I'm just hoping someone can have a look and se if there is anything I am missing.

var isAdmin = false;
var isStudent = true;

if ( isAdmin ) {
    alert('Welcome administrator');
}   else if (isStudent) { 
    alert('Welcome student');

I can confirm that this code passes the challenge if I just paste it in. Your code is correct! :+1:

If a browser restart didn't help, you might try a machine reboot. Then you may want to contact the Support folks.
