Hi Francois,

Your echo string isn't an exact match for what the challenge wants.

It should be 'As an admin, you can add, edit, or delete any post.'

I would copy and paste that in. You were missing a comma, period, and had a typo.

Also, case 'admin'; should have a colon at the end and not a semi-colon

You don't need a Break if you add the default
