PHP PHP Arrays and Control Structures PHP Arrays Multidimensional Arrays

I have been at this for a couple days now and the only error I get now is try again

I don 't know how to output the array the way it want's me to, I even get it to output in the preview but it just keeps saying to try again

index.php
<?php
//edit this array
$contacts[] = [
  'name' => 'Alena Holligan',
  'email' => 'alena.holligan@teamtreehouse.com',
];
$contacts[] = [
  'name' => 'Dave McFarland',
  'email' => 'dave.mcfarland@teamtreehouse.com',
];
$contacts[] = [
  'name' => 'Treasure Porth',
  'email' => 'treasure.porth@teamtreehouse.com',
];
$contacts[] = [
  'name' => 'Andrew Chalkley',
  'email' => 'andrew.chalkley@teamtreehouse.com',
];


//$contacts[0] will return 'Alena Holligan' in our simple array of names.
echo $contacts[0]['name'] . $contacts[0]['email'] . "\n";
echo $contacts[1]['name'] . $contacts[1]['email'] . "\n";
echo $contacts[2]['name'] . $contacts[2]['email'] . "\n";
echo $contacts[3]['name'] . $contacts[3]['email'] . "\n";


//Example: $contacts = array(array('name'=>'Alena Holligan'));
//Example: $array[#][STRING]

/*echo "<ul>\n";
echo "<li>Dave McFarland : dave.mcfarland@teamtreehouse.com</li>\n";
echo "<li>Treasure Porth : treasure.porth@teamtreehouse.com</li>\n";
echo "<li>Andrew Chalkley : andrew.chalkley@teamtreehouse.com</li>\n";
echo "</ul>\n";*/

the code in the post isn't the code I had before, that was just me messing around trying to figure it out.

I think you need to delete:

echo $contacts[0]['name'] . $contacts[0]['email'] . "\n";
echo $contacts[1]['name'] . $contacts[1]['email'] . "\n";
echo $contacts[2]['name'] . $contacts[2]['email'] . "\n";
echo $contacts[3]['name'] . $contacts[3]['email'] . "\n";

and add the contact data in below:

echo "<ul>\n";
echo "<li>" . $contacts[0]["name"] . " : " . $contacts[0]["email"] . "</li>\n";
echo "<li>" . $contacts[1]["name"] . " : " . $contacts[1]["email"] . "</li>\n";
echo "<li>" . $contacts[2]["name"] . " : " . $contacts[2]["email"] . "</li>\n";
echo "<li>" . $contacts[3]["name"] . " : " . $contacts[3]["email"] . "</li>\n";
echo "</ul>\n";

BRUH it actually worked omg, I did something like that on the first day, but ohhh I don't think I had the <li> placed properly when I tried it. Yeah it makes sense now, cuz it needs to be able to properly display it on the webpage. Thank you!
