PHP PHP Basics PHP on the Web Date Function

date formats

As a developer, you'll spend a lot of time in the documentation. For this code challenge, you'll need to check out the documentation for the date function to see details about formatting.

Use a SINGLE date function to display today's date in the message. Use the following format: full month, day of the month with leading 0, comma and 4 digit year.

Example: Today is July 04, 2016

where am i going wrong

echo 'Today is' . date ("F d, Y");
//Place your code below this comment

Hi Edmond you are almost there just take not of the instructions you are to place your code below the comment line so you will need another echo as indicated below:

echo 'Today is ';
//Place your code below this comment
echo date("F d, Y");

happy coding.

Thank you..


I've run into the same issues as you going through Treehouse. Basically, it wants you to follow it to the T even if there is a easier/better way to do it.
