Hi Nils!

You forgot the first part - you need to open a php code block:

index.php
<?php
$name = "Mike";

oh yes silly me

Don't worry - you'll do many more silly things when learning to code :smile:

Here you go someone else done it for you :) Would be nice if treehouse would give people an ability to view the challenge, because sometimes is hard to help like that, as we can see -_-

Once you get better you spot things quicker from experience :D

Konrad Pilch I don't know about you, but at the top right of my page is a "View Challenge" button. I generally right-click that and open in a new tab. Are you not getting the View Challenge button? That seems odd.

Oh, I didn;t write it. Sometimes I have thing in my head, but i don't write them :D My subscription is out and i can only use forum. I can't help much when it comes to questions like this because i don't see the challenge.

Like you can see, the code is correct, but it was missing the opening PHP tag. I didn;t know what the challenge is asking for so i can't help him straight away, apart form him giving me the full challenge.

It's all dynamic at treehouse, untill , in my opinion, theres something made like this where i can't help if we think about this type of quesiton because of my subscription out.

And yeah, im crying over the subscirption, if it seems like lol it's summer and the gift i got is treehouse sub down : d gosh, the best time to learn is summer.

But at least i know what im doing.. PHP OOP and laravel.. so hopefully i learn it good enough and id earn soon.. in few months get the sub back.

;)

Thanks Greg and Konrad
