Hi Suyash,

Using the 'MikeTheFrog' example for the username, In your code it appears as though you've concatenated $json_feed_url to be 'http://myapi.netMikeTheFrog.json', which isn't quite right.

If you're still stuck, double check the 'Bummer' warning message for what should be stored in the variable.

hi, thank you for the reply, I had put '/' to make it 'http://myapi.net/MikeTheFrog.json

that too did not work.

Hi suyash, I copied your code and have gone through each step of the code challenge again. On Task 2, it gave me the 'incorrect feed URL' error, which I was able to resolve by adding a forward slash to the end of http://myapi.net in your $json_feed_url variable.

From there on I was able to progress straight to Task 5 (the final task) without having to make further changes. It looks like you haven't been able to attempt that one yet, so I'll leave it in your capable hands.

Good luck! Joel
