    hint [2/9]

    Explanation:

    You have to check if the string you get as an input is a palindrome and return true if it is, and false otherwise.

    I really don’t want to hint my way out of this one, but am I on the wrong track if I’m using an if/else statement here?
    I’ve learned a ton about the different functions, especially the replace function and RegEx and I just can’t seem to make it work fully.

    Hey Justin101, how much of your code works right now? I'm stuck too, but only with a few examples.
    maybe we can work this out together?
    oh, that was yesterday. sweet

    hint [7/9]

    First

    function palindrome(str) {
      var normalizedStr = str.replace(/[\W_]/g, '').toLowerCase();
      var reverseStr = normalizedStr.split('').reverse().join('');
      return normalizedStr === reverseStr;
    }

    hint [8/9]

    Second

    function palindrome(str) {
      str = str.toLowerCase().replace(/[\W_]/g, '');
      for(var i = 0, len = str.length - 1; i < len/2; i++) {
        if(str[i] !== str[len-i]) {
          return false;
        }
      }
      return true;
    }

    Code Explanation:

    We use regular expressions to replace any uppercase letter into a lowercase. Then we check if the string is the same as the reversed string using split() to split the original string by characters, then reverse and then join it back together.

    Thx camperbot. hint 1 unlocks it
    GangstaCoder
    @GangstaCoder
    why the square brackets and underscore?: [\W_]
    GangstaCoder
    @GangstaCoder
    why not /\W/g ?
