esc_html error (however, code is correct)

I found the correct code here in the community forum but it's not working for me (as well as others).

Here's the code that keeps giving me an error

<?php


function my_plugin_options_page() {

  if (!current_user_can('manage_options')) {
        wp_die('You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.');
  }

   if ( isset( $_POST['my_plugin_hidden_field_submitted'] ) ) {
        $my_plugin_username = esc_html( $_POST['my_plugin_username'] );
  }

}
?>

Please help.

plugin.php
<?php


function my_plugin_options_page() {

  if (!current_user_can('manage_options')) {
        wp_die('You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page.');
  }

   if ( isset( $_POST['my_plugin_hidden_field_submitted'] ) ) {
        $my_plugin_username = esc_html( $_POST['my_plugin_username'] );
  }

}



?>

Hi Carla,

Your code should be failing the first challenge, not the second. Paste in the required value my_plugin_hidden_field instead of my_plugin_hidden_field_submitted and your code will pass.
