PHP PHP Arrays and Control Structures PHP Arrays Multidimensional Arrays

i run my code in brackets and it runs just fine..

What is the issue with my code i cant find it.

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

echo "<ul>\n";
//$contacts[0] will return 'Alena Holligan' in our simple array of names.
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";

Hey Alex,

The syntax for multidimensional arrays (bracket notation) is:

$array[index]['string']

Update your code to reflect the 'string' part and you should be good.

Hey yeah thanks. I got that all ready. If I'm not mistaken I can write that the way I did why it's not accepting it?

Sometimes TH expects a very specific answer.

Also, if you already moved past the challenge, delete your question or mark it as solved so others don't spend unnecessary time trying help. Better yet, search before posting, because this has already been asked before.
