Did I miss a step somewhere? Why does my code at the top of contact.php look different from Randy's?

This is the code at the top of my contact.php file. If you look at the course video (2:50) alongside this question you can see that Randy's code looks different.


$name = $_POST['name'];
$email = $_POST['email'];
$message = $_POST['message'];
$email_body = '';
$email_body = $email_body . 'Name: ' . $name . "\n";
$email_body = $email_body . 'Email: ' . $email . "\n";
$email_body = $email_body . 'Message: ' . $message;

//* TODO: Send Email
