I am not able to add space between two php variables when combined into a third one.

Create a third string fullname. I'm stuck here. Googled for help. Did not manage to solve.

index.php
<?php

//Place your code below this comment
$firstName = "Rasmus";
$lastName = "Lerdorf";
$fullname = $firstName " " $lastName;
?>

You need to use the concatenation operator (the dot)

e.g.

$variableA . " " . $variableB;

1 Answer

You need to have periods to concatenate (glue together) strings.

$fullname = $firstName . " " . $lastName;

I hope this helps. ~Alex
