I am not sure what I am missing or doing wrong here


$username = 'sketchings';

//Available roles: author, editor, admin
$role = 'editor';
  if ($role != editor) {
    if ($username = sketchings) {
        echo 'The users $role is NOT admin';
    } else {
  echo 'That a $username is set';
//add conditional statement
echo "You do not have access to this page. Please contact your administrator.";

Some hints:

  • The only echo statement will be the one that is provided
  • The instructions specify only one if statement. Here the OR operator || will be useful
  • You are to check if the role is not 'admin'
  • You are to check if $username is set. Here you can use $username = ""
