I don't know if I'm completely misunderstanding the task or the Challenge doesn't work properly
Hey everybody, I'm doing the step 3 in the String Manipulation challenge and as you can see in the index.php I'm doing everything the task ask me to do.
The $fullname string is duplicated because I was wondering if keeping a copy of the original $fullname would the challenge be okey but either way, it keeps saying boomer :(
I check the code in workspace and it is OK...I don't know how to pass it.
thanks for the help :D
<?php //Place your code below this comment $firstName = 'Rasmus'; $lastName = 'Lerdorf'; $fullname = "$firstName $lastName"; $fullname = "$firstName $lastName was the original creator of PHP \n"; echo $fullname; ?>

Hi Lucas Nofal,
You are absolutely right your code is good, it should work perfectly in workspaces. But sometimes these challanges are expecting specific answer. Currently you are overriding your $fullname variable, that's why it doesn't let you pass I think. Task 3 "Use the $fullname variable to display the following string to the screen. Use an escape character to add a newline to the end of the string." 'Rasmus Lerdorf was the original creator of PHP'
<?php ... $fullname = "$firstName $lastName"; echo $fullname . " was the original creator of PHP\n"; ?>

I believe this task may be looking for the use of the concatenation operator to build your $fullname variable.
Try the following line in your code.
<?php $fullname = $firstName . " " . $lastName; ?>

My answer was also incorrect. Can't figure this challenge out! Any help?
