Help with Conditionals :(

I have no idea what step one means. Step two I tried, but I’m pretty sure it isn’t right.

Without changing the variables, create a SINGLE conditional statement around the echo command that checks: That a $username is set. The users $role is NOT admin

index.php
<?php
$username = 'sketchings';
//Available roles: author, editor, admin
$role = 'editor';

//add conditional statement
if ($role != "admin"){
echo "You do not have access to this page. Please contact your administratior.";
}

Hi Tianni,

Please see the below code I used to pass this challenge:

<?php
$username = 'sketchings';
//Available roles: author, editor, admin
$role = 'editor';

//add conditional statement
if (isset($username) && $role != "admin") {
echo "You do not have access to this page. Please contact your administratior.";
}

I have used the isset function for step one's criteria. Then, I used the '&&' logical operator which means 'and' to check the second condition (step two).

Hope this helps! Happy Coding!!!

isset? Did the video go over that because I’ve never seen that before. If so I will watch it again. Thanks for the help.
