I just gave it a go, and it worked fine for me. Did you try and make sure that both had === not just one?

I would maybe just refresh and try it again. You are straight substituting into the $var2 = "Cholocolate".


    $var1 = "Cookie Dough";
    $var2 = "Chocolate";
    $initial = "C";

    if (stripos($var1,$initial) === 0 && stripos($var2,$initial) === 0) {

        echo $var1 . " and " . $var2 . " both start with " . $initial . ".";

    } else {

        echo "Either " . $var1 . " or " . $var2 . " doesn't start with " . $initial . "; maybe neither of them do.";



Hope this helped :)
