Greetings, please can you help me on the below issue?
am a self learner of python and having issue debugging the below code.
get below the error i get:
AttributeError Traceback (most recent call last)
<ipython-input-98-c194ce619f5f> in <module>()
30 #extract the League Point
31 TierInfoLPs = page_html.find('span', class_="LeaguePoints").text
---> 32 TierInfoLPs.append(TierInfoLP)
34 # extract the Total Rank

AttributeError: 'str' object has no attribute 'append'
also when i don't put append methode, the result in the dataframe at the colonne of TierInfoLP, it comes with spaces, how to remove the spaces?

Thank you for your help.

Thank you
Save the string as another variable, alter it, and write it back. Don't try to write it back on the same calculation you are changing it.
