Create a variable called fullName and assign it a value equal to the concatenation of the firstName variable, a space, the middleName variable, a space, and the lastName variable.

Bummer! $fullName is set, but it's not the concatenation of $firstName, $middleName, and $lastName with spaces between them.

.Thank you!

concatenation.php
<?php
$fullName="";
$firstName = "Mike";
$middleName = "the";
$lastName= "Frog";
$fullName= $fullName ." ". $firstName;
$fullName= $fullName ." ". $middleName;  
$fullName= $fullName ." ". $lastName;  
echo "The designer at Shirts 4 Mike shirts is named " . $fullName ;
?>

It looks like the challenge wants you to concatenate all three into one with a single statement. I used this, and it worked in the challenge:

<?php
$fullName="";
$firstName = "Mike";
$middleName = "the";
$lastName= "Frog";
$fullName= $firstName." ".$middleName." ".$lastName;
echo "The designer at Shirts 4 Mike shirts is named". $fullName ;
?>
