Challenge task 3 of 3 Create the function called in the add_options_page() function. Inside of it, echo out "Welcome to

function my_plugin_options_page {

echo 'Welcome to my plugin settings page';

}

This has happened to me a few times. Sometimes, the Code Challenge Engine can be a little finicky when it comes to grammar and punctuation.

Also, you had a small syntax error in the second function; you forgot to include the parentheses after the name of the function.

This should be the correct code. Notice the period at the end of the last echo.

<?php // syntax highlighting

// Page Title: My Plugin Settings Page
// Menu Title: My Plugin
// Slug: Same as menu name, but with hyphens instead of spaces
// Make sure user has ability to manage plugin options
// my_plugin_options_page() is the function for what displays on the options page

function my_plugin_menu() {
    add_options_page( 'My Plugin Settings Page', 'My Plugin', 'manage_options', 'my-plugin', 'my_plugin_options_page'  );

}

add_action('admin_menu', 'my_plugin_menu');


function my_plugin_options_page() { // missing parentheses here originally

    echo 'Welcome to my plugin settings page.'; // missing period here originally

}

Hope this helps! Happy coding!

Here is the final solution to pass the last round.

<?php
function my_plugin_menu() {
    // Page Title: My Plugin Settings Page
    // Menu Title: My Plugin
    // Slug: Same as menu name, but with hyphens instead of spaces
    // Make sure user has ability to manage plugin options
    // my_plugin_options_page() is the function for what displays on the options page  
  add_options_page(
        'My Plugin Settings Page',
        'My Plugin',
        'manage_options',
        'my-plugin',
        'my_plugin_options_page'
    );  
}
function my_plugin_options_page() {
   echo '<p>Welcome to my plugin settings page.</p>';
}
 add_action( 'admin_menu', 'my_plugin_menu');
?>
