What wrong with my whale talk code

Hi all

I need some help, I’m not sure what’s wrong with my code.
It looks like its not running the first if statement
if(input[inputText] === vowel[vowels]) but I’m not too sure.
The code runs but it runs everything and not just the vowels

Code
var input = “turpentine and turtles”;

let vowels = [“a”, “e”, “i”, “o”, “u”];

var resultArray = ;

// the above is just for variable

for (let inputText = 0 ; inputText < input.length ; inputText++){

for (let vowel = 0 ; vowel < vowels.length ; vowel++){

    if(input[inputText] === vowel[vowels]){

    }

        if (input[inputText] === "e") {

            resultArray.push("ee"); 

        }else if (input[inputText] === "u") {

            resultArray.push("uu");

        } else {

            resultArray.push(input[inputText])

        }

    }

}

console.log(resultArray.join('').toUpperCase());

Hello @eugenegovender, welcome to the forums! Notice how you’ve closed the first if block without putting any code in it?

if(input[inputText] === vowel[vowels]){

    }
    ^
This closes the "if" block

Hi @ codeneutrino

thank you for the response.

I originally had a nest if function but the code does run when I do that.

var input = “turpentine and turtles”;

let vowels = ["a", "e", "i", "o", "u"];

var resultArray = [];

// the above is just for variable

for (let inputText = 0 ; inputText < input.length ; inputText++){

    for (let vowel = 0 ; vowel < vowels.length ; vowel++){

        if(input[inputText] === vowel[vowels]){

            if (input[inputText] === "e") {

                resultArray.push("ee"); 

            }else if (input[inputText] === "u") {

                resultArray.push("uu");

            } else {

                resultArray.push(input[inputText])

            }

        }

    }

}

    console.log(resultArray.join('').toUpperCase());

the output is then blank.

Notice how the iterable variable (the one that increments as the loop runs) is declared as vowel, here:

for (let vowel = 0 ; vowel < vowels.length ; vowel++){
         ^

Should you be checking for the index of vowels in vowel here? Isn’t vowels an array?

if(input[inputText] === vowel[vowels]){
                        ^     ^
                         \   /
      Are these variables in the right order?
